Upon learning his shop sold the winning ticket, store manager Hasiz Abdullah said in a statement: “We’re a small shop within a local community so it’s great to hear that one of our customers has had this big life-changing moment.

"It’s great news for the area as well so I am sure there will be lots of excitement when word gets out. I wish the winner all the best with their big win – we’re all so happy for them!"

While there was no winner of Friday night's €84,880,433 EuroMillions jackpot, over 64,000 players in Ireland won prizes across the EuroMillions and EuroMillions Plus games.

Tuesday night’s jackpot is now set to roll to an estimated €95 million.

The events will come to a close on Friday 20 August when not one, but two EuroMillions players in Ireland will win €1 million each.
