National Lottery confirms Kerry winner HAS made contact!
ONE EuroMillions player in Ireland is GUARANTEED to win €1 Million tonight
With the entire Kingdom hoping to be cheering on Sunday, a Kerry Lotto player has started the celebrations early after becoming the 23rd National Lottery Millionaire of 2023.
The Kerry winner scooped the €1 Million top prize in Wednesday’s Lotto Plus 1 draw (26th July) after purchasing their winning ticket in Murphy’s Supervalu on Railway Road in Kenmare.
Store owner Derry Murphy was delighted to hear the good news: “It really could be anyone who’s won since we have a real mix of locals and tourists who shop with us every day. We’re a busy store in the centre of town so there will be a real buzz around the place as soon as the news gets out. To think that one of our customers is now a millionaire is very exciting and great news. The staff here will be delighted to hear that we sold a ticket worth €1 Million. The biggest prize that we sold before this was €500,000 in the EuroMillions Plus draw so we were definitely due another big win!”

Meanwhile, tonight’s EuroMillions draw (28th July) is set to see one player in Ireland become the 24th National Lottery Millionaire of the year with a special ‘Ireland Only Raffle’.
In every EuroMillions draw, ten players win €5,000 with their unique raffle number. Tonight’s draw will see one of the Raffle winners scoop €1 Million, in addition to their €5,000 prize. EuroMillions players hoping to win big in the Friday night draw can purchase tickets in-store, through the National Lottery app or online at www.lottery.ie ahead of the 7.30pm cut-off times for sales this evening.
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. In 2021 alone, €304 million was raised for local Good Causes in communities across Ireland.
