On Tuesday, September 20th, the EuroMillions lottery had its 1,565th lottery draw, which had a massive jackpot of €152,925,599.
However, there were no winners on Tuesday night, which means that the jackpot has now rolled over to the next EuroMillions lottery draw scheduled on 23rd September, Friday. The jackpot will now be €169 million.
Tuesday night’s draw
The numbers drawn on Tuesday night were 11, 21, 23, 32 and 38, while 03 and 12 were the Lucky Star numbers. MHLP25577 was the UK millionaire maker code.
While no one may have won the grand prize in the EuroMillions draw, there were other players who were able to win some great prizes.
Seven lucky players walked away with €82,017.10 each, as they managed to match the five main numbers, along with 1 Lucky Star number.
Two of these winners were from the United Kingdom. One player also managed to become a millionaire overnight, as they landed the UK millionaire maker code.
The EuroMillions lottery draws are held on Tuesday and Friday every week and a ticket costs €2.50. Players are automatically entered into the UK Millionaire Maker draw that creates millionaires on a weekly basis.
The EuroMillions lottery had also conducted Ireland-only draws recently and one lucky player was able to hit the jackpot.
The winning ticket was purchased on the date of the draw in Costcutter, Bealadangan, but the winner came very close to not becoming a millionaire.
The lucky player chose to remain anonymous, but disclose that they did not know they had the winning ticket.
The player said that they had checked their ticket and saw that they did not have any of the numbers drawn in the EuroMillions lottery.
Therefore, they threw it in the car and did not think to check the raffle code, which is given at the bottom of the ticket.
A couple of weeks later, the player found the ticket in their car during cleaning and decided to scan it on the app. A call to the National Lottery Claims Team sent them into complete and utter shock.
The player could not believe they had won €1,005,000 and wanted to surprise their wife on her birthday, but he could not keep it a secret for more than an hour and told her.
As far as plans are concerned, the lucky punter said that they want to go to Graceland to the home of the King, Elvis Presley.
He said that it had been his dream to go to Graceland in Memphis and that is all they had planned for now.
The winner visited the lottery headquarters in Dublin on Wednesday, September 21st, to collect their prize.
