EuroMillions players all over Ireland are being advised to buy their tickets early as excitement grows ahead of tonight’s special EuroMillions Mega Draw which has a guaranteed jackpot of an astonishing €130 million.
The National Lottery has advised players dreaming of winning big in the Mega draw to continue to follow public health guidelines and if playing in-store, to buy their tickets early to avoid queues which will inevitably build in the hours leading up to the cut-off for ticket sales at 7.30pm tonight.
A spokesperson for the National Lottery said, “The EuroMillions community holds a special Mega Draw event a number of times a year and it always creates incredible excitement amongst our players. With the guaranteed jackpot of €130 million for tonight’s draw, we are advising our players to continue to follow the Government’s public health guidelines and avoid queues in retail by purchasing their tickets early in store or to play online at www.lottery.ie or through the National Lottery App.”
Nearly 30 cent in every €1 spent on all National Lottery games goes back to Good Causes in the areas of sport, youth, health, welfare, education, arts, heritage and the Irish Language. In total more than €5.8 Billion has been raised for Good Causes since the National Lottery was established 33 years ago. In 2020 alone, €254 million was raised for local Good Causes in communities across Ireland.
