Dundalk Store Branded ‘Lucky’ After Selling Winning EuroMillions Ticket

A retail outlet in Dundalk has been branded “lucky” by its staff after a jackpot-winning EuroMillions Plus ticket was purchased on the premises. This is the third time the Ard Easmuinn branch of Dunnes Stores has attracted attention for its lottery exploits, having previously sold tickets worth €250,000 and €300,000.

After they received news that they had sold the winning quick pick ticket, which matched the numbers 1, 10, 19, 35 and 41 in the draw on Tuesday 21th March, workers at the shop revealed they were “over the moon”. With the identity of the winner still a mystery, a buzz of excitement has been sweeping the area, and staff are hoping that the money is claimed by a local resident.  

EuroMillions Plus fans haven’t been left wanting when it comes to jackpot winners in 2017. This is the fourth occasion that the top prize has been won, perfectly mirroring the total number of winners at the same stage last year. This latest win is also the second consecutive draw in which the €500,000 reward has been scooped.  

Elsewhere, fresh appeals are being made to residents in the Cork area to carefully check their Christmas Millionaire Raffle playslips. The winning ticket holder now has just 1 week left to contact National Lottery officials regarding a €1 million prize, an issue National Lottery chief executive Dermot Griffin is still desperately trying to promote: “You never know, you may have a €1 million winning ticket sitting at the bottom of a Christmas stocking or in an unopened Christmas card,” he said. “It could be a worthwhile search to find the €1 million lucky ticket.”

If you fancy your chances of winning a EuroMillions prize, don’t forget to pick your numbers online or play through any authorised retailer ahead of tonight’s €37 million draw. Good luck!
