Tuesday’s EuroMillions jackpot set to roll towards €40 Million (est)

Two EuroMillions players in Galway and Tipperary got their weekend off to an incredible start after both players scooped the top prize of €500,000 in last night’s Plus draw (6th October).

The Galway winner won their top prize amount after purchasing their ticket through the National Lottery app or online at The National Lottery has confirmed that a notification to the user’s online account and a separate email has now been sent to the lucky West of Ireland ticket holder.  

Meanwhile, the Tipperary winner scooped their €500,000 prize after purchasing their Quick Pick ticket on the day of the draw at Tobin’s Newsagency on the Main Street in Ballingarry, Thurles.  

Anne Tobin who has owned the store with her husband Michael for the past 30 years was delighted to hear that one of their customers won the top prize in the Friday night draw: “This is our biggest win that we have ever had in our store so I feel slightly in shock myself. As soon as word gets out, I’m sure we’ll be seeing plenty of our customers in the shop to check their tickets. I know some of our regulars like to keep their tickets and check a few weeks together but I’m sure as soon as they hear someone has won €500,000, they’ll be checking them sooner than that! We are absolutely thrilled for the winner and it’s such wonderful news for the community. We wish the winner all the very best and fingers crossed they come forward soon!”

The winning numbers from the Friday 6th October EuroMillions Plus draw were: 09, 25, 30, 35, 50.

The Premier County winner is advised to sign the back of their ticket and keep it safe. The two biggest Irish EuroMillions winners of the night should make contact with the National Lottery prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email and arrangements will be made for them to collect their prizes. 

Last night’s EuroMillions and EuroMillions Plus draws saw over 47,000 players in Ireland win prizes. As there was no outright winner of the €30,163,856 jackpot on offer, Tuesday’s jackpot is set to roll towards an estimated €40 Million.
