Irish Pub Hopes to Share EuroMillions Success with Followers

A pub in Ireland has come up with a novel approach to generate publicity and gain more followers on Twitter by offering to share the wealth if their ticket for tonight’s EuroMillions draw hits the jackpot. The top prize stands at £51 million (€65 million) following a run of six rollovers, and employees from The Paddocks pub in Clonee, Dublin are among millions of hopefuls from across the continent who have rushed to enter the game.

Earlier this week, a photo of a EuroMillions ticket was posted by employees to their Twitter account and revealed that anyone who retweeted the post and followed them would receive a share of the prize if they won. The tweet said: “We did a €6 Qp for FRI EUROMILLIONS. It’s up to €65mill and if we win we share it with YOU. Just retweet & follow us.” The post has so far been retweeted more than 30 times, but if the ticket does win it would still be a very lucrative click of a button for those new followers.

Linking up with The Paddocks might be one option for tonight’s draw, but you could also decide to organise your own syndicate with friends, neighbours or work colleagues. EuroMillions Syndicates allow players to increase their chances of winning without having to spend more on tickets, because they are entering more lines and splitting the cost between group members. 

The EuroMillions jackpot has not been won since a player from the UK matched all five main numbers and both Lucky Stars on Tuesday 12th April to grab £51.8 million. The top prize this evening is of a similar value, and some ticket holders may believe it is an omen that it will be scooped again soon.

If you fancy getting involved in the game, you might be tempted to go in with a syndicate, check out The Paddocks’ Twitter account or go it alone. EuroMillions tickets can be bought online or by visiting authorised retailers in any of the participating countries. Good luck!
