Excitement building ahead of tonight's €12 Million (est) Lotto Jackpot draw
A National Lottery player from Co. Tipperary is sure to be celebrating today after scooping last night's EuroMillions Plus top prize worth a staggering €500,000. The winning quick pick ticket was purchased at Centra, Old Bridge, Clonmel, Co. Tipperary.
The National Lottery can confirm this afternoon that the winner HAS made contact and arrangements are currently being made for them to collect their prize.
Owner of the winning store, Robert Ely was delighted to get the call of his store’s big win on Tuesday night. “To be honest, I wish I was getting the call to say I was the winner”, he laughed. “Ah no, but I’m absolutely over the moon, it’s great news and I really do hope it’s one of the locals in area who’s won it”.
Robert has been running the store for 17 years in Clonmel and said this is the biggest win they’ve had to date; “We’ve had a couple of Telly Bingo wins in the past couple of years, but this latest one is by far the largest amount on a winning ticket we’ve sold. We're thrilled to be a part of this special moment in someone’s life, and we'll aim to keep the smiles rolling and dreams alive for all our customers.”
There was no winner of the EuroMillions jackpot which was worth €39,998,137. Which means Friday’s (16th June) jackpot is now set to roll to an estimated €55 million.
Meanwhile the anticipation is palpable as the nation eagerly awaits the draw for tonight's staggering €12 million (estimated) Lotto jackpot - the biggest jackpot on offer so far this year.
As we get closer to the draw, the National Lottery are reminding players that the cut-off time for ticket sales is 7.45pm on Wednesday evening and tickets can be purchased in-store, through the National Lottery app or at http://www.lottery.ie/.
