Getting your house in order just in time for holiday season can be pretty frustrating, but you can also stumble upon a couple of valuable things along the way. One couple from county Galway can buy all the Christmas presents they want after finding a ticket worth €105.000 during their clean-up.
The couple purchased their winning Euromillions ticket all the way in October, but they didn’t remember to check the numbers right away. It gathered dust inside a drawer for almost six weeks until husband and wife duo decided it’s finally time to check if it’s a winner. After going through all of their old tickets, the lucky pair realized they’re about to receive €105.000.
Husband explained they were cleaning up the house before putting up the Christmas decorations. Holiday season is the perfect time to finish up all the tasks you’ve been postponing all year long, so they decided to scan Euromillions tickets that have piled up inside one of their drawers.
After checking one of them, a message popped up on the screen, informing them they should contact the National Lottery. The couple was super-excited after discovering their victory, but they could’ve never in a million years imagined their prize is going to be worth this much.
The timing of their victory is as perfect as it gets, since there’s no better time to score major cash reward than holiday season. They’ll use some of the lotto money to enjoy a very special Christmas, and the he rest will go towards paying off their mortgage.
