The National Lottery is now urging all Waterford EuroMillions players to check their tickets to see if they have won this life-changing sum.

The golden ticket for the EuroMillions guaranteed €1 million prize in Ireland was sold at the Tramore Service Station on the Waterford Road. The ‘Ireland Only Raffle’ winning code, found on the EuroMillions ticket, is I-DTG-57033.

This winning shop is less than 10 kilometres away from where another Waterford player scored a €1 million win in the November 2017 ‘Ireland Only Raffle’. That ticket was sold at the Supervalu store in the Kilbarry Centre in Tramore. 

A delighted Tramore Service Station store owner and manager, Elaine Farrell said today: “We’re absolutely delighted. We are just a few minutes from where the other recent Ireland Only Raffle winning ticket was sold so maybe Tramore is fast-becoming a lucky millionaires town. We’ve been spreading the word to all of our customers this morning and I really hope it is a local who is the winner.”

Friday’s ‘Ireland Only Raffle’ was part of the EuroMillions Draw which guaranteed creating a new Irish millionaire. There were two lucky winners of the EuroMillions jackpot of €74,290,358 on tickets sold in Portugal and Spain.

The winning did not end there as a lucky Daily Millions Plus player in Co. Mayo won the top prize of €500,000 on last night’s draw.
This golden ticket was sold at the Newstand store on Market Square, Castlebar. Co. Mayo. The winning Daily Million Plus numbers for this draw were 15, 19, 25, 28, 32, 39 and the bonus was 7. 

The National Lottery is also calling on all players in Castlebar to check their tickets to see if they are the winner.

National Lottery CEO, Dermot Griffin said today: “We are thrilled that we have made this Bank Holiday weekend one that two of our players will never forget! And here’s hoping for a treble as tonight’s Lotto Draw is worth an estimated €4.5 million. Even if our players are away for the weekend or out and about they can still play in store, online or through the National Lottery App before 7:30pm this evening.”

He added: “And we urge our players not to forget that every day there are two chances to become a millionaire through our Daily Millions draws and the two Daily Millions Plus Draws with a €500,000 prize.”
