Irish EuroMillions Winner Pockets €28.9 Million

Ireland is celebrating its 11th EuroMillions win after a player from the country struck gold on Friday 7th July. The Irish National Lottery is urging ticket holders across the country to check their numbers, with a €28.9 million fortune awaiting one lucky participant.

The winning line from the draw was 11, 20, 35, 37 and 45 with Lucky Stars 3 and 6, and the win is the second in Eire since the start of the year. In January, a syndicate of work colleagues claimed €88.5 million after playing their numbers at a service station on the M1 in Lusk, Co Dublin. Before that, a group of Dublin Bus drivers shared €23.8 million in July 2016.

Ireland’s biggest ever EuroMillions winner remains Dolores McNamara of Limerick. The former cleaner discovered she had won €115.4 million whilst on a night out at the pub in July 2005. The seventh month of the year is a lucky one for players from the Emerald Isle, with four of the 11 jackpot wins coming in July.

Ireland sits eighth out of nine participating EuroMillions nations when it comes to jackpot wins, just three behind Austria in seventh. France leads the way, with 85 top prizes since the game began in 2004. The total prize money received by Irish players tipped over the €1 billion mark following Friday’s draw. See the Winners page for more information.

Friday’s winner has 90 days to come forward and claim their bumper prize, and will then decide whether to go public with their happy news or stay anonymous. Find the full prize breakdown from the draw at the EuroMillions Results page.

Tuesday’s EuroMillions jackpot is worth €17 million and you can choose your numbers online for your chance to relax into the millionaire lifestyle. You can also buy tickets at authorised retailers in any of the participating countries.
