Someone in the West will certainly be awake this morning as the National Lottery is appealing EuroMillions players in Galway City to check their tickets after a prize worth €500,000 was sold in a newsagents near Eyre Square.
This winning Quick Pick ticket was bought at the XL Newsagents in the Eyre Square Shopping Centre, in Galway city centre.
This is the 24th EuroMillions Plus top prize of €500,000 won in Ireland so far this year, with all 24 winners sharing a whopping €12 million on this game alone.
The winning numbers from last night’s EuroMillions Plus draw are: 08, 09, 11, 13 and 35.
A spokesperson for the National Lottery said: “While there was no winner of last night’s EuroMillions MegaDraw jackpot of €130,000,000, more than 89,000 players in Ireland were prize winners so we are calling on everyone across the country to check their tickets. However the biggest winner of the night was our €500,000 EuroMillions Plus winner so to everyone who bought a ticket for last night’s draw around the Eyre Square area in Galway, we’d encourage them to check those tickets carefully. If you are this lucky winner please sign the back of the ticket and get in touch with the National Lottery claims team on 1800 666 222 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will make arrangements for you to get your prize”.
