Tonight’s Lottery draw might be heading for €12m but one Donegal family won’t be “worrying about paying the next bill” after celebrating a windfall of €500k today after last week’s Euromillions draw.
The family won €500k in last week’s Euromillions draw after buying their winning €6 QuickPick ticket in Killybegs, Co. Donegal.
The family, who wish to remain anonymous, have played the Euromillions every week for the last 11 years and finally saw their numbers come up, thanks to the Quick Pick ticket.
Another big winner at the National Lottery HQ today was a man who picked up prize of €129,700, his Match 5 plus Bonus Lotto prize, from the Lotto draw on Wednesday 23 December 2015. He purchased his ticket in Mulveys House of Gifts, Main Street, Carrick on Shannon, Leitrim on the day of the draw; the ticket was a €12.50 Quick Pick.
