This win is the tenth jackpot claimed by an Irish player since EuroMillions sales first began in the country in October 2004. The latest winner joins the likes of €115 million winner Dolores McNamara in claiming a huge lottery prize from the Emerald Isle, and proved that the luck of the Irish is still very much alive when it comes to taking part in EuroMillions.
As well as being the first jackpot win of the new year, this is also the highest prize amount won since a father-of-four from Belgium scooped €168 million on Tuesday 11th October 2016. The latest victor must now claim their prize within 90 days of the draw date.
If you would like to become the next EuroMillions jackpot winner of 2017, tickets for Friday’s €17 million jackpot are available to purchase online or from any authorised retailer in participating countries. Best of luck!
