Someone in Ireland has won €500,000 in Tuesday night's EuroMillions draw.
The main jackpot was worth €25,800,000 tonight and, while nobody won the top prize, someone did have the lucky numbers to win the EuroMillions Plus.
The numbers drawn were 5, 7, 9, 29 and 35 and the National Lottery have confirmed that the €500,000 winning ticket was sold in Cork.
There is no information just yet as to what location the ticket was sold at.
The news comes a few days after three - yes, three - players won big in Friday night's EuroMillions draw.
There's a new millionaire in Ireland after Friday night's EuroMillions draw - and two more players won €500,000.
Talk about a very happy start to the Christmas season.
Every EuroMillions line bought in Ireland has a unique Ireland-only raffle code, from which 10 are drawn to win €5,000 in each standard draw.
However, last week's draws will see each of the 10 Ireland-Only raffle winners receiving the usual €5,000 and they'll also be placed in another draw to be in with the chance to win a life-changing €1 million.
The winning ticket number is: I-HKS-43344.
Elsewhere in the draw, two online players won €500,000 in the EuroMillions Plus.
The lucky numbers were 17, 23, 27, 39 and 44.
Players are being urged to double check their tickets to see if they won any of the big prizes.
