Over the course of two weeks from 10th-20th August, we saw five players win €1,005,000 each during the EuroMillions ‘Ireland Only Raffle’ event. On Tuesday 10th August, an online player in Wicklow became the first winner in the highly anticipated event after purchasing their golden ticket online. A few days later, Friday the 13th proved lucky for a Dublin player who joined the roll call of winners after purchasing their winning ticket at the Spar store in Woodbine Park in Blackrock, Co. Dublin. Meanwhile, an online player in Louth became the third winner in the ‘Ireland Only Raffle’ on Tuesday 17th August. The special EuroMillions event came to a dramatic close on Friday 20th August when two players won €1,005,000 each on the same night. The fourth and fifth winners were an online player in Dublin and a Waterford winner who purchased their winning ticket in the Tesco store in Ardkeen village.
The five special ‘Ireland Only Raffle’ winners were not the only big EuroMillions winners during the month as we also saw three EuroMillions Plus players scoop the top prize of €500,000 each. A Dublin player got their weekend off to an incredible start on Friday 6th August with their top prize win after purchasing their ticket in the Spar shop on the Clogher Road in Crumlin, Dublin 12. A few days later, another Dublin player had a similar win after purchasing their ticket online on day of the draw. On Friday 27th August, a Rebel County player became the third EuroMillions Plus top prize winner of the month after picking up their ticket at the Dunnes Stores in Bishopstown Shopping Centre on the Curraheen Road in Cork.
