Lottery Luck Strikes Again in Leitrim After Ireland Only Raffle Win
Last Updated: Monday 30th October 2017, 11:30 am
Friday’s €1 million Ireland Only Raffle winner bought their ticket at a shop in Co Leitrim that previously sold an Irish Lotto entry worth €2 million. The special edition of the supplementary EuroMillions draw took place ahead of the bank holiday weekend and offered the enhanced award on top of the usual ten prizes of €5,000.
Ireland Only Raffle Result
Irish EuroMillions players receive a randomly generated Ireland Only Raffle code for every line they play in the main game. The regular awards are guaranteed to be won on the night and, on the occasions on which there is a special €1 million prize up for grabs too, the ten winners enter another draw, with one being picked to add the seven-figure sum to their €5,000 haul.
Friday 27th October’s €1 million-winning code was I-CTM-80877 and you can find the other nine successful combinations at the EuroMillions Results page.
Winning EuroMillions Shop
The brand new millionaire made their successful play at the Londis at Attyfinlay Autocentre in Carrick-on-Shannon, Co Leitrim. Coincidentally, it is the store’s second major triumph in less than six months, following a €2 million Irish Lotto jackpot win in May.
Owner Kevin Kennedy admitted to the press that he was “absolutely delighted,” adding “It proves lightning can strike twice. I never thought we would sell another major winning ticket so soon after May. I’m not sure who the millionaire is as we get a lot of passing trade as Carrick is a big party town at the weekend.”
More Irish EuroMillions Success
There was another big EuroMillions win pocketed in Ireland on Friday. A ticket holder in Ballyfermot, Dublin scooped €500,000 in the optional supplementary EuroMillions Plus draw. The main game’s €17 million jackpot was claimed by a player from the UK.
