Tourist Wins $295,000 Irish Lottery Prize

A tourist in Ireland that got caught up and stuck without a way to get back home because of Storm Ophelia won a $295 thousand prize in the Irish Lotto. The lucky winner stated that just the day before he had won a small prize with a scratch ticket and feeling lucky he decided to buy another lotto ticket while waiting for a new flight to get back to his homeland.

He stated that he bought his friends dinner the night he was supposed t leave but ended up getting his flight cancelled because of the storm, with the small winning he had made with the scratch ticket, deciding to spend the money on his friends. While waiting for his friends to arrive he decided to purchase another ticket that ended up being worth $295,000.

He could not believe it when he found out that he had won such a large prize and he called the phone number on the ticket just to make sure. The National Lottery confirmed that he had won the prize and he was ecstatic!
