A EuroMillions player in a County Kilkenny town is €97,604 better off after matching five numbers on last night’s EuroMillions draw of Friday, April 10..
The National Lottery has appealed for its players in Callan to check their tickets as this winning Quick Pick ticket was sold in Glynn’s Daybreak store in Friary Walk Retail Park.
Winning numbers from the main EuroMillions draw were 03, 10, 17, 33 and 39 and the lucky star numbers were 01 and 04.
Michael Glynn, owner of Glynn’s Daybreak told The Kilkenny Observer:
“We’re absolutely delighted. It was a nice surprise to get the call from the National Lottery as it’s our first major winner in the store.
“It’s a nice bit of news for the town too and hopefully, as most of our trade is from local people these days with people shopping closer to home, the winner is someone from Callan.”
With over 51,000 winners in last night’s EuroMillions draws, the National Lottery has appealed to all players to check their tickets, particularly in Kilkenny where this ticket was old.
There was no winner of the €53,434,751 EuroMillions jackpot.
A National Lottery spokesperson said:
“It’s not the Easter weekend that many of us would have planned but it sure was a Good Friday for one lucky person in Callan in Kilkenny who has won €97,604.
“We are asking all our Kilkenny EuroMillions players to check their tickwrta. We look forward to welcoming the winner to National Lottery HQ once Covid-19 restrictions are lifted.
“If you are this lucky winner please sign the back of the ticket and contact our prize claims team on 1800 666 222 and we will make arrangements for you to collect your prize when it is safe to do so.”
The National Lottery also reminded players that it has extended the period of time that lucky winners can collect prizes to encourage people to stay at home and not require them to make any unnecessary journeys during our public health emergency.
This means that any lucky winners of Lotto and Lotto Plus, Lotto 54321, EuroMillions and EuroMillions Plus, Telly Bingo, Daily Millions and Daily Millions Plus draws from January 9, 2020 until draws in the week July 5 2020 will have an extra three months in which they can claim their prizes.
The prize claims extension applies to winners who purchased their tickets and scratch card games in-store, online at www.lottery.ie and via the National Lottery App.
