'We are absolutely over the moon' - Lucky Irish punter scoops EuroMillions Plus jackpot
A lucky punter woke up €500,000 richer after scooping the top prize in the EuroMillions Plus draw last night.
The luck of the Irish is definitely shining through as this is the third EuroMillions Plus win in a row here and the tenth so far this year.
The golden ticket was sold at Clifford & Sons Gala store in Mounthawk in Tralee, Co. Kerry yesterday and staff at the store said they are "over the moon."
Store manager Liz Drew said: "‘It’s just incredible to think that one of our customers has just won a half million euro!
"There is great excitement in the shop this morning as people come down to check their tickets and to join in the celebrations! We are a local community shop with very loyal customers so we are absolutely over the moon with their win."
The winning EuroMillions Plus numbers were: 15, 30, 35, 37, 43.
For €1 extra per line, EuroMillions Plus gives players the chance to net €500,000.
The lucky winner is urged to sign the back of their ticket and contact the National Lottery Prize Claims Team on 01 836 4444.
Tonight's jackpot is heading for a life-changing €11.5 million, players have until 7.30pm to get their ticket in store, online or through the National Lottery App.
The Lotto jackpot has been rolling over since March 1, when a syndicate landed €12.8 million.
Meanwhile, the Ireland Only Raffle on Friday means that an Irish EuroMillions player is guaranteed to win €1 million.
