Galway daily news galway syndicate claims 133,000 euro prize

A EuroMillions player from Galway woke up €50,000 richer this morning after scooping the Ireland Only Raffle prize along with nine others on Thursday.

Three players in Dublin, two players in Cork and one player in Clare, Kildare, Kilkenny and Tipperary also scooped the special raffle prize last night.

It was the second of twelve draws in the National Lottery’s ’12 Draws of Christmas’ promotion, and ten players will win €50,000 each in all EuroMillions draws every Tuesday and Friday until December 23.

The lucky local bought his ticket online, while seven of the ten winners bought their tickets in shops across the country.

Commenting on this exciting first draw of ‘12 Draws of Christmas’, a spokesperson for the National Lottery said that the third draw will take place on Tuesday (22 November) where ten more players are guaranteed to win the amazing prize.

“Not only will the special promotion see 120 players in Ireland win €50,000 over the six weeks, but all EuroMillions players in Ireland will also be in with a chance of becoming Ireland’s second EuroMillions jackpot winner of 2022.”
