A National Lottery player in Co. Kildare is officially kicking-off their weekend as Ireland’s newest millionaire following Friday night’s EuroMillions ‘Ireland Only Raffle’ draw. Last night was the fourth and final draw of the special raffle which made four brand new millionaires in Ireland over the month of August. The winning ticket worth €1 million was won by a player in Kildare who purchased their ticket online or through the National Lottery App.    

Typically, in every single EuroMillions draw, ten players in Ireland win €5,000 on the ‘Ireland Only Raffle’. In last night’s draw, an additional €1 million was added to the special raffle draw and among those ten winners of €5,000, one of those winners won an additional €1 million.  

The ‘Ireland Only Raffle’ winning raffle code in last night’s EuroMillions draw, which is worth €1,005,000 million to one online player in Kildare was:  I-NDJ-62913 

It was a big night for Irish winners in Friday night’s (26th August) EuroMillions draw which saw over 66,000 players in Ireland win prizes. Among those prize winners was a Dublin player who matched 5 numbers and the bonus to scoop €143,631. The winning quick pick ticket was sold on the day of the draw in Spar 290 Ballyfermot Road, Dublin 10. 

A National Lottery spokesperson said, “What a night it was for the Irish in last night’s EuroMillions draw. Somebody in Co. Kildare could be waking up to the fact that they are Ireland’s latest EuroMillions millionaire. We are asking all our online players to check their National Lottery accounts and tickets very carefully today as they will have received a notification and an email to inform them of their prize.
