Weekend starts with a €500,000 win for Limerick EuroMillions player


Lotto excitement as tonight’s jackpot set to hit a historic €13.5 million (est)

One lucky EuroMillions player in Co. Limerick got their weekend off to the perfect start with a top prize win of €500,000 in last night’s EuroMillions Plus draw. The winning Quick Pick ticket was purchased last Wednesday (1st September) at the Tesco store in the Roxboro shopping centre in Roxboro, Co. Limerick.

The winning EuroMillions Plus numbers for last night’s (Friday 6th August) draw were: 01, 09, 13, 28, 44

The winning ticket holder is advised to sign the back of their ticket, which is now worth €500,000, and to get in touch with 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. 

While there was no winner of last night’s €17 million EuroMillions jackpot, over 58,000 players in Ireland won prizes across the EuroMillions and EuroMillions Plus games.

Meanwhile, Saturday night’s Lotto jackpot is set to hit a five year high and roll towards an incredible €13.5 million (estimated). The current jackpot has been rolling for almost three months and the next jackpot winner could become the 10th biggest Lotto winner in the history of the game in Ireland.

The National Lottery has reminded players hoping to scoop tonight’s historic Lotto prize to play their tickets early and to avoid queues in-store which will inevitably grow ahead of the 7.45pm deadline tonight.

Nearly 30 cent in every €1 spent on all National Lottery games goes back to Good Causes in the areas of sport, youth, health, welfare, education, arts, heritage, and the Irish Language. Since the National Lottery was established 34 years ago, €6 billion has been raised for Good Causes. In 2020 alone, €254 million was raised for local Good Causes in communities across Ireland.
