The National Lottery are appealing to EuroMillions players in Wexford to check their tickets after one player matched 5 numbers in Friday night’s €38 million jackpot draw and will now walk away with a cool €116,054. There was no winner of the massive jackpot prize on offer or the Match 5 + Lucky Star prize which meant that the Match 5 prize tier was boosted with the flow down prize fund.
The winning Quick Pick ticket was purchased on the day of the draw (23rd July 2021) at the Daybreak Store situated on Main Street in Wexford Town. The owners of the store are business partners, Kieran Walsh and Frank Jordan who have run the store for the past seven years. On hearing the news of their big win, Kieran Walsh was ecstatic when told of his customers good fortune: “Wow. This is absolutely huge for us. As I was on the phone to the National Lottery getting told the news of the big win, the celebrations were already underway as news got around the staff in the store! There’s a great atmosphere in the shop already today so we’ll be making sure that everybody who comes in will be checking their tickets. We’re situated in the centre of Wexford Town so we have a good group of local regular customers. This time of year though, there are a lot of tourists and passer-by’s popping into the store to get ice-creams and whatnot so it literally could be anybody! Whoever it is, we wish them every bit of luck with their new found fortune.”
The winning numbers for last night’s (23rd July) EuroMillions draw were: 23, 24, 26, 34, 50 and lucky stars 02, 04.
The winning ticket holders are advised to sign the back of their tickets and to contact the prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email@example.com and arrangements will be made for them to claim their prizes.
While there was no winner of the €38 million jackpot on offer in last night’s draw, over 51,000 players in Ireland won prizes across the EuroMillions and EuroMillions Plus games. Tuesday’s jackpot (27th July) will now roll to an estimated €50 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 34 years ago. In 2020 alone, €254 million was raised for local Good Causes in communities across Ireland.
