There's a new millionaire in Ireland after tonight's €75 million EuroMIllions draw
We're not jealous at all.
Someone in Ireland has become a millionaire after tonight's EuroMillions draw, in what is possibly the best way to kick off the weekend.
The EuroMillions draw tonight was worth a cool €75 million tonight - with an additional €1 million up for grabs in the Ireland Only Raffle.
The lucky digits drawn to scoop up the top prize were: 2, 9, 20, 34, 42 and the lucky stars were 6 and 9.
Meanwhile, the winning numbers for the EuroMillions Plus - which had a €500,000 jackpot - were: 6, 16, 27, 30 and 49.
The National Lottery haven't revealed if there were any Irish winners of the top prizes just yet.
But the Ireland Only Raffle means that one of the players with one of the numbers below has officially become €1,000,000 richer tonight - so it's time to check those tickets.
The winning ticket was bought at the Gala store on Stradbally Road in Portlaoise, Laois.

It comes as someone in Cork won €500,000 in a EuroMillions draw late last month.
According to the National Lottery, the ticket was sold in Cork. They urged everyone to double-check to see if they had the golden ticket.
The jackpot for the main draw has been rolling over since early June, when someone in the UK won €138,716,863.
Before that, on June 14, there were two lucky winners of the EuroMillions Plus top prize, with the tickets being sold in Dublin and in the South.
The draw before, on June 11, there were another two winners - this time, with the winning tickets being sold in Cork and Louth.
The Cork winners were later revealed to be a nine-person work syndicate from Mallow - who won two years after some other colleagues claimed €369,000 in June 2017.
“Our colleagues' big win in 2017 certainly spurred us on to set up this syndicate and we’re delighted to win it as a group so soon after the last big win.
"There certainly wasn’t any jealousy at work but it kicked us into action to set up our own syndicate and it’s just unbelievable that there could be two winning syndicates at the same workplace in such a short space of time.
"Everybody back at [work] in Mallow is absolutely buzzing for us all.
“It is such a lovely amount to win together and while it won’t change our lives, €55,000 each will certainly allow us to make a lot of nice changes in our lives.
"There is great excitement among the group who are all planning on splashing out on some holidays, new cars while others are planning on putting the money towards deposits for new homes."
