Lotto bosses have revealed the shop where the ticket was bought.
A EuroMillions player in Kildare has won nearly €350,000 in the draw on Friday (18 February) after matching five numbers and one lucky star.
Lotto bosses have said the winning Quick Pick ticket was purchased on Wednesday at the Circle K on the Dublin Road in Athy.
The winning numbers for the EuroMillions draw were 25, 38, 41, 43, 50 and the lucky stars were 06 and 10.
Players who may have purchased their tickets in the Athy area are being urged to check them very carefully as one of them now has a ticket worth €349,382.
The lucky Kildare punter is advised to sign the back of their ticket and keep it in a safe place.
They should also make contact with the National Lottery prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Arrangements will then be made for them to claim their prize.
As there was no winner of Friday’s €30,386,297 EuroMillions jackpot, Tuesday’s jackpot is set to roll towards an estimated €40 million.
Meanwhile, the National Lottery will be adding an additional €1 million to the Lotto Plus Raffle prize fund for Saturday's draw.
"The Lotto Plus Raffle typically sees between 80 and 120 winners of €500 in every draw but for tonight’s draw, players are set for a boost in their winnings," the National Lottery said in a statement.
"By topping up the raffle prize fund by €1 million, the National Lottery predicts that each winner of tonight’s Lotto Plus Raffle draw will receive between €8,000 - €12,500."
Last Saturday, it was revealed the winning ticket for the previous Friday's EuroMillions jackpot of nearly €31 million was sold in Clare.
