The National Lottery has confirmed that the winning ticket for the EuroMillions draw worth €31 million was sold in Co Clare. The draw was conducted on Friday night and it is the 17th time that an Irish-bought ticket has won the EuroMillions draw in 18 years that this Europe-wide lottery has been running. The last time that a EuroMillions jackpot had been won in Ireland was back in July 2020. A €49 million jackpot was claimed by an online player hailing from Dublin.
The total jackpot amount for Friday night’s draw was €30,928,078 and this makes it the 9th highest jackpot to be won in the entire history of the Irish lotto. 13, 18, 38, 42 and 45 are the winning numbers and 07 and 11 are the Lucky Stars. The winner from Clare has not reached out to the National Lottery as yet. A spokesperson for the National Lottery said that they wanted to urge the lottery players in Clare to check their tickets carefully.
The spokesperson added that if any of them were the lucky winner, they should stay calm and sign the back of their tickets right away. They went on to say that making contact with their prize claims team was the next step to take, so they could begin making arrangements for the player to claim their prize.
Apart from this, it has also been confirmed that the winning ticket for last Wednesday’s Lotto jackpot worth €4,687,612 had been sold at a shop outside Trim, Co Meath. It was a Quick Pick ticket and had been sold at Summerhill Court at the Centra store, which is located in Summerhill, Co. Meath. Recently, the local store had also sold the winning ticket for the top prize in the Millionaire Raffle draw for New Year’s Eve.
Geoff Scally, the shop owner, stated that he was truly shocked to have sold yet another winning lottery ticket. He said that customers come in from far and wide and offer their congratulations for selling the Millionaire Raffle ticket. He went on to say that their regulars would be delighted and shocked to find that they had sold yet another big winner to someone in their own community.
