The winner admitted that he got quite the surprise when he scratched his Money Multiplier scratch card that he purchased at the Spar shop on the Millenium Walkway on Upper Abbey Street in Dublin 1. 

“Before this, the most I ever won was €50 so it was a massive shock when I saw all those zeroes looking back at me. It’s not everyday that you hear of a top prize amount being won so I think that threw me as well. I never expected it so I’m delighted that I can now say I’m a top prize winner! I don’t know how long I spent looking at it. Looking after my family is the top priority now”, he said.  

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 35 years ago.
