This weeks National Lottery Jackpot boasts a staggering €100 million
The sky will be the limit for a lucky Irish player or players if they scoop Friday’s mega €100 million EuroMillions jackpot.
Excitement is mounting all over the country at the mouth-watering prospect of scooping one of the highest EuroMillions jackpots of 2018.
National Lottery CEO, Dermot Griffin, said today: “This jackpot is really catching the imagination of our players. With this amount of money anything is possible! We are advising all our players to buy their tickets early in-store, or play online at lottery.ie or through the National Lottery App.”
Mr Griffin added: “We also want to remind our players that by playing EuroMillions they are contributing to Good Causes all over Ireland. The estimated amount raised from this EuroMillions roll will be an incredible €5.4m. So even if there isn’t an Irish winner Friday communities all over Ireland will benefit. Almost 30 cent in every euro spent on National Lottery games go back to Good Causes.”
Since Euromillions began in 2004 there have been 12 Irish jackpot wins. And so far this year 19 lucky players have won the top prize on EuroMillions plus of €500,000.
