The player from Co. Kildare has become the latest player in Ireland to win the EuroMillions Plus top prize in 2023 and the National Lottery has confirmed that a notification to the user’s online account and a separate email has now been sent to the lucky ticket holder.
The winning numbers in Friday’s (19th May) EuroMillions Plus draw were: 02, 03, 23, 33, 35.
There was no winner of Friday night’s EuroMillions draw which was worth just over €54 million. Tuesday’s (23rd May) EuroMillions jackpot is now heading for an estimated €65 million.
With over 48,000 Irish winners in last night’s EuroMillions draw, a spokesperson for the National Lottery has called on all players nationwide to check their tickets: “The €54 million jackpot up for grabs wasn’t won but over 48,000 players in Ireland have won prizes, in particular, one lucky player in Co.

The winner should make contact with the National Lottery prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and arrangements will be made for them to claim their prize.”
Meanwhile, the National Lottery have reminded Lotto players that tonight’s life-changing €9 million (estimated) Lotto draw is extra special with bigger prizes up for grabs this weekend. An additional €1 million has been added to the Lotto Plus Raffle prize fund which means that all winners of the Lotto Plus Raffle will take home the usual €500 PLUS share an extra €1 MILLION between them.
Lotto Plus Raffle typically sees around 100 winners of €500 in every draw but on Saturday night, players are set for a boost in their winnings. By topping up the raffle prize fund by €1 million, the National Lottery predicts that each winner of Saturday's Lotto Plus Raffle draw will receive between €8,000 - €12,500, depending on the number of winners.
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.
