An online player in Dublin got their week off to an incredible start by winning €2,000 per month for 5 years in last night’s first ever EuroDreams draw. The online player scooped the tier 2 prize after matching 6 numbers in the Monday night draw.
The winning EuroDreams numbers in the Monday 6th November draw were: 10, 13, 14, 25, 30, 35 and the Dream number was 05.
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 Dublin ticketholder.
EuroDreams is the first annuity game of its’ kind ever to be seen in Ireland and comes almost 20 years after the EuroMillions was first launched in Ireland in 2004. Unlike other lottery draw-based games, the annuity top prize which is worth €7.2 Million will be paid in monthly tax-free payments of €20,000 spread over 30 years. Last night’s debut draw saw two players in France scoop the top prize after both players matched 6 numbers and the Dream number in the Monday night draw.
The National Lottery are reminding players hoping to win big in the next draw that tickets can be purchased ahead of the 7.30pm cut-off time for sales on Thursday evening at usual National Lottery agents nationwide, online at www.lottery.ie or through the National Lottery app.
The game is played in eight countries, namely Ireland, Austria, Belgium, France, Luxembourg, Portugal, Spain and Switzerland with draws taking place every Monday and Thursday at 8pm. The minimum play for EuroDreams is one line per Draw, which costs €2.50 with players picking six main numbers from 1-40 and one bonus number (called "Dream" number) from 1-5 to make up their combination.
A National Lottery spokesperson said: “What a way to start the week! An online player in Dublin had a truly memorable Monday night after becoming the biggest winner in Ireland in the first ever EuroDreams draw. The online player matched 6 numbers to win the unique prize of €2,000 per month for 5 years. The inaugural draw also saw two players in France win the top prize of €20,000 per month for 30 years after both players matched 6 numbers and the Dream number.”
