A EuroMillions player in the Castlerea area of Roscommon became the biggest winner of the night after winning the top prize of €500,000 in last night’s EuroMillions Plus draw. The winning Quick Pick ticket was purchased on Sunday 19th December at the Corrib Oil Service Station on St. Patrick’s Street in Castlerea, Co. Roscommon.

The winning numbers in Tuesday night’s (21st December) EuroMillions Plus draw were: 18, 22, 29, 34, 50.

Staff members Teresa Brehony, Sarah Lavin and Breege Casey were pictured celebrating at the Corrib Oil Service Station on St. Patrick’s Street in Castlerea, Co. Roscommon after it was announced that one of their customers won the top prize of €500,000 in Tuesday night’s EuroMillions Plus draw.

Keith Gallagher, Manager of the Corrib Oil Service Station on St. Patrick’s Street, was thrilled with the news: “A win like this really couldn’t come at a better time. One of our customers certainly has had the ultimate early Christmas present this week. With all the talk of restrictions and uncertainty, it’s just lovely to get a good news story like this. All of our staff are delighted with the win and excited that one of our customers has come into such good luck. Hopefully the winner checks their ticket soon and realizes just how much it’s worth before Christmas. The whole team wishes them all the very best with their win!”

The Roscommon winner, who now has a ticket worth €500,000, is advised to sign the back of their ticket and keep it in a safe place. The winner should contact the National Lottery prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email claims@lottery.ie and arrangements will be made for them to claim their prize.

As there was no winner of the astonishing €52,678,478 jackpot on offer last night, Friday night’s jackpot is now set to roll to an estimated €70 million.
