Last Updated: Wednesday 30th March 2016, 11:16 am
One lucky ticket holder certainly turned Good Friday into a great Friday after scooping the EuroMillions Plus jackpot of €500,000. While players from across the continent witnessed a third straight rollover in the EuroMillions draw, the Irish player, who is yet to be identified, matched all five numbers in the supplementary game and will no doubt be celebrating a cracking Easter that will live long in the memory.
By matching 7, 11, 25, 27 and 42 as the winning numbers, the fortuitous lottery fan became the fourth lucky ticket holder to pocket the EuroMillions Plus top prize this year following a win on 15th January, two wins on 12th February and a single win on the 15th March. As it stands, all of the successful players in 2016 in this game have hit it big on a Friday evening, a trend that many fans will be hoping to buck very soon.
Introduced to the public in June 2007, EuroMillions Plus provides Irish EuroMillions ticket holders with an additional chance to win a prize following the main draws on Tuesday and Friday evenings. Entries cost just €1 and players can win a guaranteed top prize of €500,000.
EuroMillions Plus isn’t the only prize up for grabs this week, as tonight’s Irish Lotto jackpot is worth an estimated €4 million and EuroMillions has reached a guaranteed €39 million for Friday’s draw. To be in with a chance of winning any of these fantastic prizes, simply purchase your tickets online or from any authorised retailer. Best of luck!
