€250K prize will vanish in five hours… 30.11.18

IT'S enough to make us weep as cash-hungry Christmas looms.
The winner of a Lotto Plus 2 prize of €250,000 has STILL not come forward and has just a few hours left to claim the whopping prize.
The Quick Pick ticket was bought on Friday, August 31, 2018 at Eason, Shop Street, Galway, with the winning numbers drawn the following night.
The 90-day cut off point for claiming the cash is 5.30pm today, Friday, November 30.
The cut off point for claiming the €250,000 is 5.30pm today, Friday, Nov 30.
As the clock ticks down, here are some hints that might jog the ticket-holder’s memory.
August 31, 2018: This was five days after Pope Francis visited Knock in neighbouring county Mayo. It was also the weekend of the All-Ireland football final between Dublin and Tyrone and was the opening day of Electric Picnic 2018.
Could the ticket-holder be a Donegal family visiting Galway to check out accommodation ahead of the new college year at NUIG?
A Lotto spokesperson confirmed that Eason will still get the retailers’ bonus for selling the winning ticket which, in this case, is €2,000.
“Unfortunately, the (€250k) prize still has not been claimed. For any unclaimed prizes of this nature, we always say that the deadline is the close of business on the final day.
“Our offices close at 5.30pm but as has happened before, should we get a call from a ticket-holder and verify the ticket over the phone before this cut-off point, we will always accommodate the payment of the prize by keeping the office open later."
