EuroMillions winner in the Banner! Ennis player to ring in the New Year €500,000 richer!

The residents of Ennis in Co. Clare have today been urged to check their EuroMillions tickets after the National Lottery confirmed the winning location for Tuesday night's €500,000 EuroMillions Plus top prize win. This is the 28th time this year that the EuroMillions Plus top prize of €500,000 has been won in Ireland.

The winning Quick Pick ticket was sold yesterday (Tuesday) at The Paper Chase store in Ennis town centre, Co. Clare. The all-important winning EuroMillions Plus numbers which are worth a half million euro to one lucky player are: 01, 02, 06, 09 and 19.

The winning ticket holder is advised to sign the back of their ticket and to get in touch with the National Lottery claims team on 1800 666 222 or email and arrangements will be made for them to claim their prize.

The Paper Chase newsagents first opened its doors in Ennis in 1992 and current owner, Sharon Casey started her career as a shop assistant when the store first opened before becoming manager and finally taking over the business in 2008. Celebrating her first big National Lottery win as the store’s owner, the delighted Clare woman has now called on her customers to check their tickets to see if they have won this life-changing prize: It’s absolutely incredible, we still cannot believe it! I got the call from the National Lottery late last night and it still feels like a dream. Knowing that one of our customers is a half a million euro richer is just fantastic. We are absolutely over the moon for the winner and we hope that they enjoy this incredible win,” she said.

There was no winner of Tuesday night's €28,138,113 EuroMillions jackpot which means that next Friday night's jackpot heads for a massive €40 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 €5.8 Billion has been raised for Good Causes since the National Lottery was established 33 years ago. In 2019 alone, €252 million was raised for local Good Causes in communities across Ireland.
