Still all to play for with LOTTO DRAW

Still all to play for with LOTTO DRAW

Blessington GAA Club held their very latest Lotto Draw on Tuesday January 15 with another brand new jackpot which was standing at €9,600. Once again the top prize was not won and only two lucky punters managed to match even three numbers.

They each received €150.

The winning numbers drawn on the night were 2, 12, 19 and 22.

Tickets priced at only e2 are already on sale at the usual local outlets or from a committee member for the club’s next Lotto Draw which will have

another new jackpot which will be standing at e9,800.

The draw will take place on Tuesday January 29.

The club urge members and supporters to purchase tickets and also ask them to encourage friends and relatives to do the same.

The recent sales have been excellent and the club really appreciate it.

This is the club’s main fundraiser during the year and a lot of time and effort is put into making it a success.

Remember if you get the numbers right on the night you will be winning the jackpot which no doubt would come in very handy at the beginning

of a brand new year.
