ONE LUCKY lottery punter in the North West woke up 250,000 richer this morning, Thursday.
Of course, it could be a syndicate or a family ticket -- we may never know.
Later this morning the exact location of the latest big winner in this region is expected to be made known.
Winning numbers worth 250,000 last night were: 1, 13, 22, 30, 34 and 39.
The bonus in that game was 11 but no punter matched that number with five, which would have offered a 2,500 consolation.
The 250,000 win was confirmed by the National Lottery which also said there was no winner of its two other Wednesday games.
Top prize last night was 11.5 million, which on offer in the Lotto Jackpot game.
One ticket which came close, with a match five plus bonus in that main game, got over 71,000.
Meanwhile next Friday night's European draw is giving a guaranteed one million euro bonus to a raffle code holder.
