The National Lottery has revealed that the winning ticket of Wednesday night’s EuroMillions jackpot worth €17,000,000 was sold in Co. Mayo. This is the third EuroMillions jackpot to be won in Mayo and the 15th won in Ireland since the EuroMillions began in 2004.
The National Lottery is appealing to its players across Mayo to check their tickets to see if they are Ireland’s newest multi-millionaire.
“We’re delighted to announce that this €17 million golden EuroMillions ticket was sold in the Green and Red county!” said a National Lottery spokesperson. “Mayo is a really lucky county when it comes to EuroMillions wins as amazingly this is the third Mayo jackpot win. This means that 20% of all Irish EuroMillions jackpot winners come from the Heather County!”
The first Mayo EuroMillions jackpot was won in April 2014 when a prize worth €15 million was claimed on a ticket sold in Castlebar. Three years later Mayo got its second winner, again in Castlebar, when a syndicate from the West of Ireland won €29 million in July 2017.
The winning numbers are: 24, 26, 32, 43, 46 and the Lucky Star numbers are 06 and 10.
The spokesperson continued: “We will announce the location of the store where this winning ticket was sold this Friday (February 14) so we are asking all our Mayo players to check their EuroMillions tickets carefully.”
But lottery players are reminded that this €17 million wasn’t the only prize won in Mayo this week as another lucky EuroMillions player scooped €500,000 after winning the EuroMillions Plus top prize. This ticket was sold in Easons store on Main Street, Castlebar.
“Hopefully all this Mayo EuroMillions luck can rub off on the Gaelic football side in their quest for Sam!” quipped the National Lottery spokesperson.
