EuroMillions players in Donegal are being urged to check their tickets after a ticket holder was just one lucky star away from winning the €43.4 million jackpot last night.
The player matched five numbers and one lucky star to win €281,487 after purchasing their winning Quick Pick ticket in Whoriskey’s EuroSpar, Ramelton, on Thursday.
Shop owner, John Whoriskey, expects there to be lots of excitement around the area today following the good news.
“It’s great to hear good news like this – we’re expecting there to be a great buzz around the shop today as lots of customers will be eager to check their tickets,” he said.
“Everyone in the shop is delighted that one of our lucky customers has had some good fortune. A massive congratulations to the winner – whoever they may be!”
The EuroMillions numbers for last night’s draw were: 01, 16, 24, 28, 46 and lucky stars 02,11.
The biggest Irish winners of the night were two players from Cork and Waterford who both scooped the EuroMillions Plus top prize of €500,000.
