Europe’s largest ever lottery prize still up for grabs as EuroMillions jackpot hits historic €230 million Cap
The National Lottery are appealing to EuroMillions players in north Dublin city to check their tickets after one lucky Dubliner scooped the EuroMillions Plus top prize of €500,000 in Friday’s historic draw night which also saw the EuroMillions jackpot roll to a record high of €230 million.
The winning Quick Pick ticket which is now worth €500,000 was sold on Thursday 7th July at the Centra store beside the Bonnington Hotel on the Swords Road in Dublin 9.
The Dublin winner is advised to sign the back of their ticket and to keep it safe. The ticket holder should make contact with the National Lottery prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email email@example.com and arrangements will be made for them to claim their prize.
Meanwhile, as there was no winner of Friday’s (8th July) EuroMillions jackpot, next Tuesday night’s (12th July) draw means that that the jackpot is now capped at a truly massive €230 million – the largest lottery prize ever seen in Europe.
The jackpot will now remain capped and could possibly remain at that amount for up to a further four draws with the additional funds that would have gone to the jackpot now flowing down to the next prize tier with a winner.
If the jackpot is still not won after the fifth draw at the cap, the full value of the jackpot will flow down to the next tier with a prize winner.
A National Lottery spokesperson said, “Last night’s EuroMillions draw was a record-breaker! Europe has never seen a higher jackpot on offer and with no outright €230 million jackpot winner, the anticipation now turns to Tuesday night’s draw which will see the jackpot capped at that level. And it’s not just about the big jackpot prize! Players at a lower prize tier will be set for a bumper prize pay-out as additional funds usually added to the jackpot will now flow down to the next prize tier at which there is a winner. Demand for tickets will be inevitably high for next Tuesday night’s draw so we are encouraging players who are hoping to play, to purchase their tickets early in-store and online at www.lottery.ie to avoid potential queues or delays on the evening of the draw.”
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 34 years ago. In 2021 alone, €289 million was raised for local Good Causes in communities across Ireland.
