Unclaimed €500,000 Irish EuroMillions Prize Will Expire on Thursday
Last Updated: Wednesday 10th February 2016, 10:08 am
A EuroMillions Plus player has until 5:30pm on Thursday to present their winning ticket to Irish Lottery officials or face missing out on a €500,000 payday. The ticket holder, who entered the supplementary EuroMillions game at the Supervalu in the Castletroy Shopping Centre in Limerick on Wednesday 11th November for the draw on Friday the 13th, matched all five main numbers but has so far failed to come forward and the end of the 90-day claims window is now looming.
The winning EuroMillions Plus numbers on that day were 3, 4, 21, 27 and 45 and the owner of the €3 Quick Pick is urged to add their signature to the back of the slip and call the lottery’s claims team on 01-836-4444. This week’s impending lottery prize deadline comes just days after a Daily Million winner from Dublin missed out on €1 million, which will now be used to promote the National Lottery in its efforts to raise cash for good causes in the country, in accordance with the terms of its licence.
The Castletroy Shopping Centre is close to the University of Limerick, so students are advised to flick through old textbooks to see if the winning ticket had been employed as a temporary bookmark or root through the pockets of old pairs of jeans in case it was shoved in their along with receipts, loose change and bus tickets at the end of a night out.
Friday’s EuroMillions draw will offer a jackpot of €32 million as well as another chance to enter EuroMillions Plus for an additional €1. You can buy EuroMillions tickets through the Buy Tickets page or at authorised retailers across Ireland, but don’t forget to use the Ticket Checker soon after the draw takes place to make sure you don’t miss out on a big cash prize!
