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.
