The National Lottery press office confirmed to the ‘Leinster Express’ yesterday (Monday, September 24) that the massive jackpot on offer for the Wednesday, August 29 draw remains unclaimed.

The winning €8 QuickPick ticket was sold in Moran’s newsagents on the previous Friday fuelling speculation the winner could be local.

A Lottery spokesperson revealed it wasn’t unusual for a winner not to come forward.
