National Lottery continue to appeal to players to purchase tickets early ahead of weekend draws
The National Lottery are continuing to appeal to EuroMillions players in Wexford to check their tickets carefully as Tuesday’s EuroMillions Plus winner is yet to come forward.
The Wexford winner scooped the top prize of €500,000 in the 9th November draw after purchasing their winning Quick Pick ticket on Friday 5th November at the Gala Forecourt on the Waterford Road in New Ross, Co. Wexford.
The New Ross 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 firstname.lastname@example.org and arrangements will be made for them to claim their prize.
Staff members Gemma Kielthy, Jane Murphy, Kevin Kehoe, Harry Buckley forecourt manager, Sophie Telford and Chris Butler were photographed celebrating with Kieran Tuohy from the National Lottery after news broke that the Gala Forecourt on the Waterford Road in New Ross, Co. Wexford sold the winning EuroMillions Plus ticket for the Tuesday 9th November draw.
Meanwhile, National Lottery players have two incredible jackpots to play for this weekend. Tonight’s EuroMillions jackpot is set to roll to an astonishing €105 million while tomorrow night’s Lotto will remain capped at €19,060,800. Ahead of both draws, the National Lottery are reminding players that the cut-off time for EuroMillions ticket sales is at 7.30pm this evening while the deadline for purchasing Lotto tickets is 7.45pm tomorrow.
A National Lottery spokesperson said: “Could this be a life-changing weekend for National Lottery players?

Tickets can be purchased in-store, through the National Lottery app or at www.lottery.ie ahead of the 7.30pm cut-off time for EuroMillions sales this evening and the 7.45pm cut-off time for Lotto tomorrow night.”
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. In total more than €6 Billion has been raised for Good Causes since the National Lottery was established 34 years ago. In 2020 alone, €254 million was raised for local Good Causes in communities across Ireland.
