Couple Claims €500,000 EuroMillions Plus Prize

A lucky couple from County Kildare were shocked beyond belief when they discovered that they had won the top EuroMillions Plus prize of €500,000. The married couple, who claimed their prize last week, only found out about their win after checking their tickets a week after the draw.

The winners, who wish to remain anonymous, purchased the winning €3 Quick Pick EuroMillions ticket from the News 4 U shop in Glenroyal Shopping Centre in Maynooth, Co Kildare for the draw on Tuesday 19th August. The couple then completely forgot to check their numbers and the only realised that they had won a week later when they checked their tickets on a self-scanner and received a message instructing them to contact lottery officials.

Not sure of the prize value, they then checked the numbers online and had to get their daughter to confirm that they had in fact won €500,000. The couple plan to pay off their mortgage with their win but wants to let the news settle in before they make any further plans.

We’d like to remind players that buying Irish lottery tickets online can save you a lot of time and effort. Your tickets are stored in a secure system and you’re notified of any win so that prizes never go unclaimed. However, we can’t guarantee that you’ll be any less shocked by a massive win than if you bought your tickets in person from an authorised retailer! would like to congratulate the lucky Kildare couple on their win and wish them all the best for the future.
