Meanwhile, a player from Dublin who scooped €100,000 in the Millionaire Raffle draw on December 31st, claimed their prize at National Lottery HQ this afternoon.

The player, who wishes to remain private, threw both hands in the air and bellowed, “Happy Days”, as they were presented with their cheque.

“My brother actually bought the ticket for me as a present. I bet he’s wishing he held on to it now! I got my daughter to ring up the National Lottery claims team to find out how much I’d won, and I thought she was messing with me when she said it was €100k, I just couldn’t believe it! Here I was walking around with the ticket in my pocket for days not bothering to check it and then, just like that, overnight its worth €100k”, she said.

“I wrapped it up, placed it in a box and stored it away, but I made sure to take a picture of where I hid it and send it to my daughter, as I’ve lost things before doing that!” she added.

The Dublin player revealed how they hope to spend their winnings: “The family are telling me I should go on holidays or buy a new car, but I’m actually just hoping to buy a new worktop and cooker for the kitchen. If I get that sorted I’ll be happy”, she said.

The winning ticket was purchased at Daybreak store on Main Street in Dundrum, Co Dublin.

Also, claiming as substantial amount at National Lottery HQ today was a family syndicate from Ballyshannon in Co. Donegal. The syndicate of eleven won €50,000 in the EuroMillions Ireland Only Raffle, ’12 Draws of Christmas’, promotion on Tuesday 22nd of November.

The winning ticket was purchased in Centra service station on Assaroe Road, Ballyshannon, Co.Donegal.
