Friday night win for Limerick player who scooped €500,000 in EuroMillions Plus draw

Tonight’s Lotto draw promises to see even BIGGER winners than usual in the Lotto Plus Raffle!


A EuroMillions player in Limerick got their weekend off to a celebratory start after scooping the top prize of €500,000 in Friday night’s Plus draw.

The winning numbers in last night’s EuroMillions Plus draw were: 17, 21, 28, 29, 42.

The Treaty County player became the biggest EuroMillions winner in Ireland last night after purchasing their Quick Pick ticket on the day of the draw at the Daybreak at Elm Court Service Station in Ballyneety, Co. Limerick.

Shop owner Aideen Fitzpatrick was delighted to get the call from the National Lottery about the big win for one of her customers.

“I was over the moon to get the call from Mary, our National Lottery rep, this morning with the wonderful news. We are all delighted here in the shop as this is the biggest win that we have ever had so I can only imagine how the winner is feeling. We have a team of 10 here and we have all been saying how brilliant this is for the community. There is sure to be big excitement as word spreads. We have a real mix of local and passing trade so the winner could be any where really. I’d say we will have lots of our customers calling in to us over the weekend to check their tickets eagerly and I wouldn’t blame them! We wish the winner all the very best with their huge win,” she said.

The Limerick winner, who now has a ticket worth an incredible €500,000, is advised to sign the back of their ticket and keep it safe. They should make contact with the National Lottery Prize Claims team on 1800 666 222 or email and arrangements will be made for them to claim their top prize amount.

Meanwhile, tonight’s Lotto draw is set to see players win even bigger prizes than usual with the National Lottery adding €1 Million to the Lotto Plus Raffle prize fund.

The Lotto Plus Raffle typically sees around 60-120 winners of €500 in every draw but tonight, players are set for a boost in their winnings. By topping up the raffle prize fund by €1 Million, all winners of the Lotto Plus Raffle will take home the usual €500 prize PLUS share an extra €1 million between them.    

The National Lottery are reminding players hoping to be in with a chance of scooping the estimated €5 Million jackpot on offer or share in the Lotto Plus Raffle prize tonight, that tickets can be purchased in-store, through the National Lottery app or at ahead of the 7.45pm cut-off time for ticket 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 36 years ago.
