Friday night’s jackpot now set to roll to an estimated €85 million
EuroMillions players in the Ballycoolin area of Dublin are being urged to check their tickets carefully today after one lucky ticket holder won the €500,000 EuroMillions Plus top prize in last night’s draw. The winning Quick Pick ticket was sold on Sunday 14th March in the Mace shop at the Maxol service station in Ballycoolin, Dublin 15.
The winning EuroMillions Plus numbers for last night's (Tuesday 16th March) draw were: 10, 24, 29, 35, 45.
The EuroMillions Plus winner was not the only big winner in last night’s draw. Two additional players from Dublin and Longford scooped €165,027 each by matching five numbers and one lucky star. Both players were just one lucky star number away from winning the overall EuroMillions jackpot last night which was worth €73,410,604.
The Dublin winner purchased their Quick Pick ticket at Tesco in the Stillorgan Shopping Centre while the winner from Longford purchased their ticket in Aldi on the Harbour Road in Longford. Both players bought their winning tickets on the day of the draw.
The winning EuroMillions numbers for last’s draw were: 23, 25, 32, 35, 47 and lucky stars 02, 06.
All three winning ticket holders are advised to sign the back of their tickets and to get in touch with the National Lottery claims team on 1800 666 222 or email email@example.com and arrangements will be made for them to claim their prize.
While there was no winner of last night’s €73,410,604 EuroMillions jackpot, there were more than 56,000 players in Ireland who won prizes. This Friday’s EuroMillions jackpot (19th March) is now set to roll to an estimated €85 million.
A spokesperson for the National Lottery said: “Last night proved to be a big night for EuroMillions players in Ireland. We had our fifth EuroMillions Plus win of the year after one lucky player bought their winning ticket last weekend in Dublin 15. We are encouraging all players who bought their tickets in the area to check their tickets carefully today as they could be celebrating St. Patrick’s Day half a million euro richer. There were also two other big winners in the main draw as two players from Dublin and Longford won €165,027 each after matching five numbers and one lucky star. They were both just one lucky star away from winning the €73 million jackpot. We are urging all of our Dublin and Longford players to check their tickets carefully as they could be worth €165,027. If you are one of these big winners, we ask that that you sign the back of your ticket and contact our prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will make arrangements for you to claim your prize.”
