Euro 2016 Beckons for EuroMillions Plus Winner
5th April 2016 9:24 AM
One lucky EuroMillions Plus jackpot winner aims to spend his prize money on a trip to the UEFA European Championships this summer. The man, who wishes to remain anonymous, admitted he was unsure how to spend his top prize win, but that a trip to the international football tournament in France with his beloved home nation would be high on the agenda.
Having turned a €15 Quick Pick entry into a €500,000 fortune on the supplementary game open to Irish EuroMillions players for an additional €1 per line, the fortuitous ticket holder will be hoping that his success will rub off on Ireland as they face a tricky test in Group E alongside Belgium, Italy and Sweden. The Republic are 150/1 to win the tournament, but with a little luck, even more of this player’s jackpot win could be used to purchase tickets for the later rounds.
With eight of the nine participating EuroMillions nations represented at the tournament, there may be plenty more jackpot hopefuls desperate to get their hands on the top prize in time for the big kick-off on Friday 10th June. Whether it be in the main draw or one of the supplementary games, some big wins could see audience numbers rise as lucky ticket holders flock to France thanks to EuroMillions.
Obviously a summer of football won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but a big EuroMillions win would allow you to take in a whole host of other sporting action over the next few months. You could take a trip to the tennis and eat strawberries and cream at Wimbledon, fly to Monaco to catch the Grand Prix or even jet off to Rio to cheer on your nation’s athletes at the Olympic Games.
Tonight’s estimated jackpot is an amazing £37 million, a total that would allow you to attend all of this summer’s sporting action and still have enough left over to catch a flight, first class of course, to your own tropical island getaway to recover from all the excitement! Remember, each country also offer their own supplementary draws, simply head to the Special Draws page if you’d like to find out more. Tickets can be purchased online or from any authorised retailer in participating countries. Best of luck!
