Midlands man left 'speechless' with €500,000 EuroMillions prize
The luck of the Irish continued in Friday night's EuroMillions draws as two separate ticket holders in Cork and Dublin both scooped €500,000 after they won the top prize in Friday’s EuroMillions Plus draw.
It was the second time within four days that there have been two top prize winners in the EuroMillions Plus game after last Tuesday’s draw produced another two lucky winners of the half million euro prize from Cork and Louth.
The double €500,000 win brings to 13 the number of EuroMillions Plus top prize wins in Ireland alone this year.
The winning Quick Pick ticket in Cork was bought in Buckley’s Kiosk at Merchants Quay shopping center on Patrick’s Street in Cork City while in Dublin the lucky Quick Pick ticket was sold at the Centra Store in Harolds Cross in Dublin 6W.
The winning EuroMillions Plus numbers for last night’s draw were 10, 16, 23, 33, 35
The lucky EuroMillions Plus tickets from Cork and Dublin weren’t the only big winners in Friday night’s EuroMillions draw as another two players from Galway and Dublin matched five numbers to win a substantial prize of €20,265 each. The winning Quick Pick tickets were sold at the Londis convenience store in Clarinbridge, Co. Galway and at Tuthills newsagents in the Pavillions Shopping Centre in Swords, Co. Dublin.
A National Lottery spokesperson appealed for all EuroMillions players to check their tickets and said: “Last night’s EuroMillions draws produced an incredible 75,000 winners in Ireland so we are encouraging every single player to check their tickets, regardless of where they bought them. It has been a very lucky week for our EuroMillions players in Ireland with no less than four separate winners of the Plus top prize of €500,000 in the last two draws.
