EuroMillions Plus Won in Wexford as Date of Next Superdraw Announced
Last Updated: Thursday 11th November 2021, 10:46 am
A lucky player from New Ross in Co Wexford has snapped up a EuroMillions Plus jackpot of €500,000 in the latest draw on Tuesday 9th November.
It is the first time in more than a month that someone has matched all five winning numbers in the EuroMillions Plus draw. The winning numbers were 2, 16, 28, 33 and 48, and the all-important ticket was sold at the Gala Forecourt on the Waterford Road in New Ross.
Harry Buckley, the owner of the store, was delighted to find out about the success the next day. He said: “It’s been quite the morning here. We have a team of 20 in the shop and we’re all thrilled that one of our customers became the biggest winner in Tuesday’s EuroMillions draw.
“When the news gets out around the town, I’m sure that lots of our customers will be in to check their tickets. It would be great if someone local won the €500,000 prize – what a win to have in the lead up to Christmas!”
More excitement is also round the corner for EuroMillions players in the lead-up to Christmas after it was revealed that the next Superdraw will take place on Friday 3rd December.
The Superdraw, or Megadraw, will put up a jackpot of €130 million. It will be the fourth special jackpot event of the year, following on from the most recent Superdraw in September. On that occasion the top prize went on to reach a record €220 million before a player from France won the lot.
There has yet to be an Irish EuroMillions winner in 2021. The last time the jackpot was won in the country was back in July 2020, when an online player from Leinster landed €49 million. Ireland has produced at least one jackpot winner every year since 2016.
