Lucky Dubliner becomes 15th EuroMillions Plus top prize winner of 2020
One online EuroMillions player in Co. Dublin has woken up €500,000 richer this morning after winning the EuroMillions Plus top prize in last night’s €17 million EuroMillions draw (Tuesday 16th June). The National Lottery is now urging its EuroMillions players in Dublin who play online to check their emails to see if they are the lucky winner.
Incredibly, this is the 15th EuroMillions Plus top prize to be won in Ireland so far this year while players of the EuroMillions game in Ireland have so far shared over €50 million in 2020. While there was no winner of last night’s EuroMillions jackpot of €17 million, over 44,000 players in Ireland were prize winners. Friday’s EuroMillions jackpot now heads for a life-changing €30 million.
Last night’s winning EuroMillions Plus numbers which are now worth €500,000 for one lucky player were: 21, 25, 33, 45, 49.
The National Lottery has stated that an email confirming the €500,000 prize win has been sent to the lucky player in Dublin this morning. A spokesperson said: “One of our lucky online players has received a special email this morning to inform them that they have won the €500,000 EuroMillions Plus prize! We are encouraging all of our online and App players to check their emails and to contact our prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will make arrangements for you to collect your prize.”
The National Lottery has also reminded players that it has extended the period of time that lucky winners can collect prizes due to COVID health restrictions. This means that any lucky winners of Lotto, EuroMillions, Telly Bingo and Daily Millions draws from 9th January 2020 until draws in the week 5th July 2020 will have an extra three months in which they can claim their prize. The prize claims extension applies to winners who purchased their tickets and certain scratch card games in-store, online at www.lottery.ie and via 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 €5.6 Billion has been raised for Good Causes since the National Lottery was established 33 years ago. In 2019 alone, €252 million was raised for local Good Causes in communities across Ireland.
