It was a bumper night of big wins for players in Ireland in Friday night’s EuroMillions Jackpot draw which was worth €130 Million. 

There was no overall winner of the EuroMillions Jackpot but two players in Clare and Donegal were one Lucky Star number short of the Jackpot prize. Both players matched all five numbers and one Lucky Star to claim the second-tier prize worth €146,289. 
The winner in Clare purchased their Quick Pick ticket on the day of the draw at the Circle K service station on the Limerick Road in Ennis, Co. Clare. 

The other winning ticket was purchased online at www.lottery.ie by a player in Donegal. 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 Donegal ticketholder.  

The winning numbers for the main EuroMillions Jackpot draw on Friday 26th January were: 08, 19, 32, 41, 42 and the Lucky Star numbers: 09, 12. As there was no winner of the €130 Million EuroMillions Mega Draw, Tuesday’s Jackpot prize is heading for an incredible €145 Million. 

 The National Lottery have called on players to check their tickets carefully and have asked the lucky winners to make contact as soon as possible. A spokesperson for the National Lottery said: “There was extra excitement for Friday’s EuroMillions draw which promised a guaranteed Jackpot of €130 Million.
