€500,000 EuroMillions Plus win

A lucky Clare player kicked off “Super Sports Saturday” by winning a mega €500,000 in last night’s EuroMillions Plus draw.

As Ireland’s Boys in Green prepare for the vital World Club soccer qualifier against Denmark in Copenhagen and the International Rugby Series match against South Africa in the Aviva, one Clare person is already a winner scoring a cool half a million Euros.

The winning Quick Pick ticket was purchased in Dunne’s Stores, Clan Road, Ennis. The National Lottery today urged players to check their tickets to see if they are the lucky winner.

The winning numbers are: 08, 15, 19, 21 and 42

The latest win brings to a record 28 the number of EuroMillions Plus winners in Ireland to date this year – clocking up a mega €14 million between them.

Today the National Lottery reminded sporting fans not to forget to buy their ticket for tonight’s Lotto which has a jackpot of €4 million.

A spokesperson said: “Ireland is on a winning streak with EuroMillions this year, with 28 of our players boosting their bank balances. This is a great start to this huge sporting day for our Clare player. We urge everybody to check their tickets and look forward to welcoming them into the National Lottery Winner’s Room.”

“We are also urging our players to get in the game and to play Lotto tonight which has a life-changing jackpot of €4 million. If they are too busy in front of the television watching the big games to go to their local shop to buy a ticket they can do so from the comfort of their sitting room by playing online at or through the National Lottery App. We wish our players best of luck with the Lotto and our rugby and soccer heroes the best of luck in their big games! ”

“In addition to the EuroMillions Plus win there were ten Ireland Only Raffle winners of €5,000 last night. The winning raffle tickets were sold in: Dublin (2), Donegal (1), Galway (1), Kilkenny (2), Meath (1), Kerry (1), Wicklow (1) and Waterford (1).

Approximately 30 cent in every euro spent on National Lottery games goes back to Good Causes all over Ireland in the area of sport, health, welfare, arts and heritage. Last year €5 million in Good Cause funding went to supporting soccer and rugby clubs all over the country.
