Lotto fever: Is someone from Longford going to win millions in tonight's Euro Millions?
Tonight’s EuroMillions jackpot is expected to hit a mind-boggling €160 million - and it could make a single ticket-holder Ireland’s biggest winner to date.
The National Lottery said today excitement is reaching fever pitch all over the country with the prospect of a mega win and a life normally reserved for the rich and famous.
A spokesperson said; “The Jackpot has been rolling for several weeks now and it is catching the imagination of our players. A win would afford anyone the kind of lifestyle that most of us only dream of.”
“Ireland is on a EuroMillions roll at the moment with three jackpot winners and 31 EuroMillions Plus wins in 2017, a record since the game began in 2004. This year alone there have been seven Irish EuroMillions Plus wins, so we are hoping the luck of the Irish continues tonight.”
“We are advising players to play early to avoid queues. You can buy your tickets in store, at www.lottery.ie or through the National Lottery App.”
