The winning Quick Pick ticket was sold on the day of the draw in McCarthy News, 43 Main Street, Midleton, Co. Cork.

With over 35,000 Irish winners in last night’s EuroMillions draw, a spokesperson for the National Lottery has called on all players to check their tickets to see if they are one of the lucky winners, “This Cork player is our second EuroMillions plus top prize winner of the year and second win in just 4 days after a player in Cavan scooped the EuroMillions plus top prize in last Friday’s draw. We’re asking all of our EuroMillions players, especially in Cork, to check their tickets to see if they are the latest winner of a life-changing lottery prize. The Cork ticket holder is advised to sign the back of their winning ticket and to keep it safe. The winner should make contact with the National Lottery prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email claims@lottery.ie and arrangements will be made for them to claim their prize.”  

The winning numbers in Tuesday night’s (17th January) EuroMillions Plus draw which are worth €500,000 to one lucky player are: 1, 12, 18, 40, 43.

There was no winner of the EuroMillions jackpot worth over €17 million, which means Friday’s jackpot rolls to an estimated €30 million.

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 €6 Billion has been raised for Good Causes since the National Lottery was established 35 years ago. In 2021 alone, €304 million was raised for local Good Causes in communities across Ireland.
