Capital Gains as two Dublin players win big in Friday's EuroMillions draw
Trinity College shop celebrates after they sell €500,000 EuroMillions Plus top prize
The National Lottery is urging EuroMillions players in Dublin to check their tickets this morning after Friday night's EuroMillions draw produced two large wins in the capital worth €500,000 and €193,667.
The biggest win of the night was a EuroMillions Plus top prize win of €500,000 and the winning Quick Pick ticket was sold at the Student Union shop which is located on the Trinity College Campus in Dublin city centre. Additionally, another Dublin player will also be celebrating a good start to their weekend after they matched five numbers and one lucky star in the main EuroMillions draw to scoop a prize of €193,667. The winning Quick Pick ticket was sold at the Circle K Westway service station on the Kylemore Road in Dublin 12.
Owner of the Student Union store in Trinity College, Patrick Pierce was overjoyed to hear the news that his store sold the winning EuroMillions ticket which will make one of his customers €500,000 richer. "Just wow! It's absolutely crazy to imagine somebody popping into the shop yesterday and they are now a half million euro richer for it today. The shop has been going in the college for 30 years. We of course have a lot of students and college staff members from the campus in our store each and every day. In addition, we also have a lot of tourists coming and going all of the time but whoever the winner is, I'm sure that €500,000 will make a huge difference to them and their families. We're absolutely thrilled for them," he said.
The winning numbers in Friday's (2nd September) main EuroMillions draw were: 07, 12, 13, 20, 45 and the Lucky Stars were 03, 12.
The winning numbers for last night’s EuroMillions Plus draw were: 13, 28, 34, 38, 41.
There was one winner of the EuroMillions jackpot. The winning ticket which was worth over €128 million was sold in the UK.
