One Irish person claims €500,000 as record-breaking Euromillions jackpot rolls on
The county where the winning EuroMillions Plus ticket was sold has been revealed.
One lucky Irish punter has nabbed the top prize of €500,000 in the latest EuroMillions Plus draw.
The numbers for the Plus draw on Tuesday night (12 July) were 13, 15, 33, 34 and 40 and the National Lottery has revealed that the winning ticket was purchased in Laois.
At the same time, the record-breaking EuroMillions jackpot of €230 million went unclaimed, meaning the top prize will continue to roll over.
Having reached the massive amount last Friday, the jackpot will remain capped at €230 million for up to a further three draws.
And better yet, additional funds that would have gone to the jackpot will now flow down to the next prize tier with a winner.
If the jackpot is still not won after the fifth draw at the cap on 22 July, its full value will flow down to the next tier with a prize winner.
Meanwhile, it's been a lucky few days for Laois as a Daily Million player in the county has also become the newest National Lottery millionaire after winning the top prize of €1 million in the 2pm draw on Sunday (10 July).
The winning Quick Pick ticket was sold at Tesco in Portlaoise and the National Lottery has urged Daily Million players in the area to check their tickets carefully as the winner is yet to come forward.
