A builder from Co. Kerry’s luck turned around after he won €500,000 in last Tuesday’s EuroMillions Plus draw.
The man, who is remaining private, bought a €6 Quick Pick in Spar Express in Tralee on Tuesday.
“I checked the results after the draw, then I put the ticket back in my pocket and went into the town for a few pints” he said.
“Things aren’t good if you are a builder in Kerry. I’d been planning to emigrate to make a better life for myself…. now I don’t need to!” he added.
Tonight’s EuroMillions jackpot is an estimated €30m.
