The golden Quick Pick ticket was bought in Cards 'n Things in the Harbour Place Shopping Centre in Mullingar on Sunday, December 23, making this the 28th winner of the EuroMillions Plus top prize of €500,000 in 2018.

Owner of Cards 'n Things, Tim Crooks, said today: "We are absolutely delighted to have sold this winning ticket and for whoever the winner may be! There is a possibility this was bought as a gift and we can't think of a more perfect one at this time of year. Congratulations to them and we hope they enjoy."

A National Lottery spokesperson said: “What fantastic news for one of our players at Christmas. We are absolutely thrilled and urge our players, especially in Westmeath, to check their tickets to see if they have won this fantastic prize. If you are the winner keep that ticket safe until you can contact us after the Christmas break. Our claims office is open for business again this Friday (December 28) and we look forward to hearing from the winner and guiding them through the claims process.”

The wining EuroMillions Plus numbers are: 3, 6, 23, 36 and 44

“This has been a very lucky year for our EuroMillions Plus players with 28 people winning €500,000. We also had one EuroMillions jackpot winner this year with a syndicate from Thurles landing a massive €17 million between them.”

Meanwhile with the jackpot not won last night this Fridays EuroMillions jackpot is worth a mega €120 million, one of the highest rolls in some time. The National Lottery advised people to buy their tickets early in-store, at or through the National Lottery App.
And tonight's Lotto jackpot is worth a cool €2.2 million.

More than 30 cent in every euro spent on National Lottery games goes back to Good Causes all over Ireland in the areas of health, sport, arts, culture, heritage, youth, community and the Irish language. Last year alone more than €226 million was raised or €620,000 a day.
