Irish Player Wins €17 Million EuroMillions Jackpot

The hunt is on for another EuroMillions jackpot winner after a single player from Ireland matched all the numbers in last night’s draw to scoop €17 million (£14.8 million). The top prize has now been given away twice in a row, after two ticket holders split a massive €74.2 million (£69.9 million) in the previous draw on Friday.

EuroMillions Results for Tuesday 5th June

The numbers drawn on Tuesday 5th June were 9, 15, 22, 39 and 46, with Lucky Stars 4 and 5. A total of 1,251,307 prizes were won across Europe, spread out over all 13 prize tiers and all nine participating countries. Apart from the jackpot, the awards ranged from £2.90 (€4.70) for matching two main numbers to €360,735 for matching all five main balls and one Lucky Star.

Two UK players also won £1 million each after matching the Millionaire Maker codes JWJW51319 and ZWJW26838. Go to the EuroMillions Results page to find a full breakdown of all the prizes, along with details of all the associated draws held around the continent.

More Jackpot Joy For Ireland

Ireland has now been able to celebrate 13 jackpot winners since EuroMillions was launched in 2004. Players from the Emerald Isle have made a habit of performing well during the summer months, with seven of those wins coming in either June or July.

The latest success marks the first time that someone from Ireland has won this year, and the lucky player now has 90 days to come forward and claim their prize. A National Lottery spokesperson said: “This is amazing news! What a great start to the summer for this lucky ticket holder.

“We are asking all our players to check their tickets carefully to see if they are the lucky winner or winners. If they are we encourage them to sign the back of the ticket, keep it safe and contact the National Lottery Prize Claims team on 01 836 4444.”

There have now been a total of ten jackpot winners in 2018, and the last two draws are responsible for three of those. A ticket holder from Spain and another from Portugal had previously taken home €37.1 million each on Friday 1st June. Visit the EuroMillions Winners page to find out more about big EuroMillions prizes and where and when they have been won.

EuroMillions Statistics

Anyone hoping to become the 11th jackpot winner of the year in the next draw on Friday might consider looking for patterns to see which numbers have been drawn a lot recently. The same Lucky Stars, 4 and 5, have appeared together in both of the last two draws, for example, and in three of the last four draws.

You can also head over to the EuroMillions Statistics to see which numbers are the most overdue or the most regularly drawn, along with information about common pairs, consecutive triplets and much more.

The top prize for the next daw will stay at its minimum level of £14 million (€17 million), and players all over Europe will be hoping to keep the winning feeling going. If you want to take part, you can visit an authorised retailer or join an online syndicate. Best of luck!
