Connacht player scoops €500k Euromillions prize

Galway Daily news €500,000 win for Euromillions player in the west

One lucky player in the West of Ireland has gotten an early Christmas present of half a million euro from Friday’s Euromillions draw.

Euromillions players in the Castlebar area of Mayo are being urged to check their tickets after one sold there won the EuroMillions Plus draw.

The winning Quick Pick ticket was purchased on the day of the draw at the Dalton Service Station (Corrib Oil) on the Ring Road in Castlebar.

The winning numbers in Friday night’s EuroMillions Plus draw were: 04, 06, 12, 28, 29.

Store Manager Sean Ryan was delighted to get the call from the National Lottery with the good news, “What a surprise to get the week before Christmas. When we got the call from the National Lottery, I almost wasn’t sure if it was real or not.”

“This is the largest prize that we have ever sold so there is great excitement around the store today. We have been encouraging all of our customers who have been in this morning to check their tickets straight away as someone is €500,000 better off now.”

“We get a lot of local trade as well as people passing through for work so it really could be anyone – let’s just hope the lucky winner checks their ticket soon!”

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

With no winner of the main jackpot, the €41,402,488 pot will now roll over to Tuesday’s Euromillions draw.

The National Lotto jackpot of €19.06 million is up for grabs once again tonight as the ongoing saga continues.
