Euro 2016 Dream for EuroMillions Plus Winner
Last Updated: Wednesday 6th April 2016, 09:25 am
A lucky EuroMillions Plus jackpot winner is hoping his newfound fortune can secure him tickets to the hottest event in European football this summer. The fortunate participant, who has requested to remain anonymous, has admitted that he is unsure of what to do with his windfall, but believes that a trip to the UEFA European Championships in France could well be on the cards.
Having purchased a €15 Quick Pick ticket from the Post Office in Mountbagnal, Riverstown, Co. Louth for the draw on Friday 25th of March, the lucky lottery fan was no doubt pleasantly surprised to discover that he had claimed the EuroMillions Plus top prize of €500,000. The fortuitous fellow now aims to follow his home nation to the continent. Ireland, who have been drawn in Group E alongside Belgium, Italy and Sweden, certainly face a tough run of games if they are to qualify for the knockout stages, but will be hoping for a little good fortune, much like this latest EuroMillions Plus winner.
With the whole nation looking to get behind the boys in green this summer, there will be plenty of fingers crossed for both the EuroMillions and Irish Lotto draws from now until the tournament kicks off on the 10th of June in Paris, with ticket holders hoping a big win will be able to secure them a pass to the event.
There are a whole host of top lottery prizes up for grabs that could be used to land yourself the best seats in the house for Ireland’s opening fixture against Sweden on Monday 13th June. Friday’s EuroMillions jackpot is now an estimated €57 million, while the top EuroMillions Plus prize is, as always, €500,000. If you simply cannot wait that long, tonight’s Irish Lotto jackpot is an estimated €5 million; a total that would certainly boost any bank balance.
To be in with a chance of winning these fantastic prizes, EuroMillions and Irish Lotto tickets can be purchased online or from any authorised retailer from across the Republic. EuroMillions Plus costs an extra €1 when buying lines for the main draw, but gives your main numbers another chance to win a major cash amount.
