The EuroMillions draw on Friday, September 2nd, saw two players from Dublin win big, with one lucky player scooping a prize of a whopping €500,000.
Friday night’s winners
The National Lottery has urged all EuroMillions players to check their tickets as two prize-winning tickets for Friday night’s draw were sold in two different stores.
The winning numbers in the main EuroMillions draw for Friday night were 07, 12, 13, 20 and 45, while 03 and 12 were the Lucky Star numbers.
As for the EuroMillions Plus draw, the winning numbers for it were 13, 28, 34, 38 and 41.
The EuroMillions jackpot was worth €128 million and a lucky ticket-holder from the United Kingdom was able to cinch the grand prize.
The Dublin winners
The second-biggest win for the night was that of the €500,000 prize, which is the EuroMillions Plus’ top prize, and the ticket had been purchased at the Trinity College Student Union Shop.
Patrick Pierce, the owner of the store was thrilled to have sold the ticket for the life-changing jackpot.
He said that it was downright crazy to think someone had come into the shop to buy the ticket and now they were richer by half a million euros.
He stated that they had been running the shop in the college for over three decades. He added that a number of staff members and college students came into the store on a daily basis.
He also said that they get a lot of tourists as well, but he said that whoever had won the €500,000 would be able to make a big difference for themselves and their families.
The store owner said that he was thrilled for the winners. Meanwhile, there was another Dublin player who turned out to be lucky, as they managed to match five numbers and one Lucky Star number in the main EuroMillions draw.
This helped them win a prize of €193,667. It was a Quick Pick ticket that had been bought in Dublin 12 at the Circle K Westway service station located on Kylemore Road.
Both Dublin winners have been advised by the National Lottery to sign the back of their tickets for safety purposes. They should get in touch with the prize claims team via email, or phone.
