Pat Smyth of Smyth's SuperValu, Ballymahon, celebrates selling the €1 million Daily Million top prize.

Ballymahon millionaire has yet to come forward

Residents of Ballymahon and surrounding areas are being urged to check their Lotto tickets, after it emerged that the town's latest millionaire has not yet come forward to claim their prize. 

A Quick Pick ticket bought in Smyth's SuperValu in the Longford town claimed the top prize in the Daily Million draw on Wednesday October 30. 
However, a month has passed and the winner has not been in touch with National Lottery headquarters as yet. Players have 90 days, from the date of the draw, to make their claim, meaning the winner will need to come forward by January 28. 
A spokesperson for the National Lottery said there had been “no word” from the mystery millionaire. 
“We’re still calling on our Daily Millions players in Ballymahon, Longford or the surrounding counties to check their tickets to see if they have won this life-changing prize,” said the spokesperson. 
“Our winner could be aware that it is them and are getting financial or legal advice, and are taking time to come to terms with this windfall.”
It is not the first time that Smyth's SuperValu has sold a lucky ticket: in 2015, a winning ticket for a €2.9 million jackpot was sold in the supermarket. 
The winning numbers from the 2pm Daily Million Draw on October 30 were: 7, 8, 13, 16, 21, 31 and the bonus number was 2.
