EuroMillions player in Laois scoops €500,000 top prize in Tuesday’s EuroMillions Plus draw

EuroMillions jackpot remains capped at €230 million - Europe’s largest ever lottery prize!

Two big wins just days apart for National Lottery players in Laois!

EuroMillions players in Co. Laois are being urged to check their tickets very carefully today after a player in the Portlaoise area scooped the top prize of €500,000 in Tuesday night’s EuroMillions Plus draw. The winning Quick Pick ticket was sold on the day of the draw at the Gala store on Grattan Street in Portlaoise, Co. Laois. 

The winning numbers in Tuesday’s (12th July) EuroMillions Plus draw were: 13, 15, 33, 34, 40.

Shop owner Bosco Ramsbottom said he was thrilled to get the call about the Tuesday night win: 

 “We’re a small, local friendly shop operating 21 years, employing 23 people. We’re absolutely delighted to hear about the win. There’s a great buzz in store with lots of our customers coming in and out of the shop checking their tickets.  We wish the winner the very best of luck !”

The Laois winner is advised to sign the back of their ticket, which is now worth €500,000, and keep it safe. They should contact the National Lottery prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email and arrangements will be made for them to claim their prize.  

Last night’s EuroMillions Plus top prize win marks the second big win for Laois National Lottery players in the space of days after a Daily Million player won the top prize of €1 million in Sunday’s 2pm draw after purchasing their ticket at Tesco Portlaoise.

As there was no winner of last night’s EuroMillions jackpot, the jackpot will now remain capped at €230 million for up to a further three 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.

Meanwhile, tonight’s Lotto jackpot is set to roll to an estimated €3 million. Players hoping to be in with a chance of becoming Ireland’s next Lotto jackpot winner are reminded that tickets can be purchased in-store, through the National Lottery app or at ahead of the cut-off time for ticket sales at 7.45pm 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 34 years ago. In 2021 alone, €289 million was raised for local Good Causes in communities across Ireland.
