Last Updated: Wednesday 20th December 2017, 10:36 am
EuroMillions players across the continent rushed out to buy tickets for last night’s draw in the hope of winning a €135.3 million jackpot, and one lucky ticket holder was rewarded as they matched all the numbers to win the full amount. The big winner came from Switzerland, but there were also more than 60,000 prizes given away in Ireland.
The numbers drawn last night were 8, 15, 30, 38 and 46, with Lucky Stars 4 and 7. Ireland’s most successful player was the participant who matched five main numbers to win €43,406, while the other prizes ranged from €5 for matching two main numbers to €2,359 for matching four main numbers plus two Lucky Stars.
Check out a full breakdown of last night’s prizes on the EuroMillions Results page. You can also find the results from the latest EuroMillions Plus draw and all the winning codes from the Ireland Only Raffle, which guarantees that ten players will each win €5,000 in every draw.
EuroMillions at Christmas
All last night’s big winners can now look forward to enjoying a great Christmas, just like the couple from Kildare who won the €500,000 top prize in Friday’s EuroMillions Plus draw and came forward this week to claim their prize.
Having bought their ticket from the Celbridge Tesco, the husband and wife did not realise until the next morning. He said: “I reached for my coat pocket, sat back down and checked the numbers. I closed my eyes again and double checked. I genuinely believed I was still asleep and dreaming. It was the most surreal moment. We cannot believe it and obviously we’re thrilled. We are going to bring the children on a nice holiday in the New Year.”
There is still time to pick up a significant sum of money on EuroMillions ahead of Christmas, allowing you to dash out for some last-minute shopping ahead of the big day. The jackpot for Friday’s draw will stand at €17 million, and you can choose numbers online or go to any authorised retailer. Good luck!
