Roisin has a ‘Lotto’ luck! thumbnailRoisin McNicholl from Dungiven has become Northern Ireland’s latest lottery winner after scooping a whopping £285,288.60 in the Euromillions draw on Tuesday December 19. Roisin is pictured celebrating her big win with her husband Martin.

IT'S going to be a very Happy New Year for Dungiven housewife Roisin McNicholl after she scooped a massive £285,288.60 in the EuroMillions draw on December 19 2017 - and she has her Mum to thank! A EuroMillions Lucky Dip ticket, purchased at Easons in Coleraine, saw Roisin, 44, match the five main numbers and one Lucky Star number in the EuroMillions draw to become over a quarter of a million pounds better off.
“It was actually my mum's 73rd birthday on December 19 so my daughter Ciara and I went to Coleraine to buy her a new phone for her birthday," explained Roisin, who lives in Dungiven with husband Martin and children Ciara, 22 and Oisin, 20.
“There was a huge EuroMillions jackpot on offer that night so once we had finished our shopping, Ciara bought a couple of lines for the big draw and I bought a Lucky Dip on top of my usual numbers that I had already done earlier. That turned out to be the lucky ticket.
“So, had we not gone to Coleraine to buy a birthday present for Mum, I would never have bought the winning ticket in that particular store," she said.
It was on the road to her Mum's house in Slaughtneil, near Maghera, that evening when Roisin discovered she had won.
