AN Irish Euromillions punter was just one lucky star away from winning the biggest-ever jackpot of €185m last night. But there was some consolation for the ticketholder, who will walk away with €2,435,037 after matching five numbers plus one of two lucky stars. The ticket was sold in Dublin.
The biggest jackpot in the history of Euromillions was won by a ticket bought in the UK. The numbers were 17, 19, 38, 42 and 45. The Lucky Stars were 9 and 10. There was one Irish winner of the top €500,000 Plus prize. The winning ticket was sold in the east. The numbers were 2, 28, 32, 49 and 50.
