Galway Daily news Another Connacht player scoops €500k Euromillions prize

It’s been a lucky week for lotto players in Connacht, as yet another has won €500,000 in the Euromillions Plus Draw.

A player in the Castlerea area of Roscommon was the winner of the top prize in Tuesday night’s EuroMillions Plus draw, claiming the same prize as another player last Friday.

The winning Quick Pick ticket was purchased on Sunday, December 19 at the Corrib Oil Service Station on St. Patrick’s Street in Castlerea.

Keith Gallagher, Manager of the Corrib Oil station was thrilled at the news, saying that it couldn’t come at a better time.

“One of our customers certainly has had the ultimate early Christmas present this week. With all the talk of restrictions and uncertainty, it’s just lovely to get a good news story like this.”

“All of our staff are delighted with the win and excited that one of our customers has come into such good luck.”

“Hopefully the winner checks their ticket soon and realizes just how much it’s worth before Christmas. The whole team wishes them all the very best with their win!”

The winning numbers in Tuesday night’s EuroMillions Plus draw were: 18, 22, 29, 34, 50.

The lucky player 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 and arrangements will be made for them to claim their prize.

As there was no winner of the astonishing €52,678,478 jackpot on offer last night, Friday night’s jackpot is now set to roll to an estimated €70 million.
