€81,129 EuroMillions win in Ballinagh

Latest Cavan winner was one number short of scooping €17 million jackpot

EuroMillions players in Ballinagh have been urged to check their tickets after Tuesday night’s draw in Paris produced a Match 5 + Lucky Star winner of €81,129.

The Cavan player matched five numbers and one lucky star, meaning that they were just one lucky star number (from 1-12) short of winning the €17 million EuroMillions jackpot on offer.

The winning Quick Pick ticket was sold yesterday (Tuesday, December 15) at Gavin’s Centra store in the centre of Ballinagh town.

The winning EuroMillions numbers are: 09, 13, 21, 29, 35 and the Lucky Stars were 01 and 02.

This EuroMillions Match 5 + Lucky Star win in Ballinagh is the latest of three such wins in 2020 which has seen three separate Cavan players come agonisingly close to the EuroMillions jackpot. Last January, the 295 strong ‘Little Rays’ EuroMillions syndicate made National Lottery history by becoming Ireland’s largest ever syndicate to win a high tier prize after they scooped €256,142. Another player in Kingscourt in Cavan won another €265,150 on the same EuroMillions prize tier last August.

The winning ticket holder is advised to sign the back of their ticket and to get in touch with the National Lottery claims team on 1800 666 222 or email claims@lottery.ie and arrangements will be made for them to claim their prize.

There was no winner of Tuesday’s €17 million EuroMillions jackpot which means that Friday’s jackpot is now heading for a massive €30 million.
