The Wrong Number Was the Right Number

A man from Dublin visited the National Lottery Ireland's head office on Monday, claimed the €350,000 top prize from Saturday's Irish Lotto Plus 1 drawing, and admitted he'd made a mistake with his entry.

The man placed his entry online and accidentally picked a different number to the one he intended, so he was doubly delighted when he realized his original numbers would have only secured him a €3,500. His mistake topped up his bank balance by an extra €346,500.

"As luck would have it, I only started playing the Plus draw recently. It’s just incredible!" the winner said.
