What?! Wicklow couple WON the lotto after finding ticket in the BIN

by

Imagine having a winning lotto ticket SOMEWHERE in the house, but God only knows where! We'd probably all faint.

However, one lucky Wicklow couple avoided major disappointment as they were able to claim a quarter of a million Euro – after finding the winning lotto ticket in the bin.

Yep. The BIN. 

UTV report that that couple didn't realise they won Saturday's draw until it was revealed that the ticket was bought in Roundwood.

This obviously had them legging it over to the bin to find the missing ticket, and, whaddya know, it was found. Phew!

“I got a print out of the results from the newsagent and when I got home, I emptied the bin in the kitchen and found the ticket under all the rubbish from the past two days. We could not believe our luck when the numbers matched up!” the couple said.

Luck was certainly on their side!
