The ‘Ireland Only Raffle’ of the EuroMillions Lottery draw was conducted on Friday, December 2nd, 2022, which saw a player from Cork claim one of the 10 prizes, becoming €50,000 richer.
The National Lottery has introduced a new promotion titled ’12 Draws of Christmas’ that are part of the EuroMillions lottery and this was the sixth of the total 12.
The winning ticket from Cork was sold in Cobh’s Cross, Carrigtwonhill at the Top Oil service station. The other 9 winners of the €50,000 prize were from Kildare, Kerry, Dublin, Mayo and Laois.
There were also those who played online in Kildare, Louth and Kilkenny. The new promotion means that ten players will be able to take home a prize of €50,000 each in each EuroMillions draw.
This is applicable to every draw that occurs on Tuesday and Friday between November 15th and December 23rd.
The winning numbers that were drawn in Friday night’s EuroMillions Lottery draw were 12, 21, 35, 39 and 45 and 6 and 11 were the Lucky Star numbers.
There were three players from Ireland who were able to match 5 numbers in the EuroMillions draw on Friday, which allowed them to win a prize of €21,113 each.
The winning tickets were purchased in Dublin in Spar in Marino Mart, Fairview and in Louth at Grants at Dundalk. The third ticket was bought online in Dublin.
Meanwhile, it should be noted that two supermarkets in Laois have sold winning tickets for the EuroMillions raffle in just a week’s time.
One of the tickets that won €50,000 in Friday night’s EuroMillions’ Ireland Only Raffle was sold at the Dunnes Store, which is located on Mountmellick Road, Portlaoise.
This windfall came only a week after Breslin’s SuperValu had sold another €50,000 winning ticket in Rathdowney.
Each of the lucky ticket holders was one of the winners in the ‘Ireland Only Raffle’ draw that is taking place every week on Tuesday and Friday.
The ticket that had been purchased in Rathdowney at Breslin’s SuperValu had been for the EuroMillions draw that took place on Friday, November 25th.
Out of every €1 spent on all of the games of the National Lottery, 30 cents is used for Good Causes associated with different areas, such as health, education, sport, youth, heritage, arts, welfare and the Irish language.
Since it was founded 35 years ago, the National Lottery has managed to raise €6 billion for Good Causes. About €304 million was raised in 2021 for Good Causes locally in Ireland to assist the communities.
