Sasko Lazarov/Photocall Ireland The €185m Euromillions jackpot remains unclaimed, but one Irish ticketholder scooped €4.57m.
# It Could Be You
Don't tear up the Euromillions ticket yet - you may have won €4.5m
There were no winners of the €185m jackpot, but one Irish ticket was only one number away and wins €4.57m.

THE RECORD EUROMILLIONS jackpot of €185m will be on offer once more next Tuesday, after last night’s draw went unclaimed despite record ticket sales across Europe.

The winning numbers – 12, 13, 23, 40, 49 with the Lucky Stars of 7 and 10 – went unmatched in all eleven participating countries, which is perhaps unsurprising given the odds of 116,531,800/1 of matching all seven.

But six tickets across Europe – including one sold in Ireland – overcame odds of 23,306,360/1 to match all five of the main numbers, and one of the lucky stars – netting a cool €4,576,071 each.

The owner of the winning ticket has 90 days to claim their prize.

The main Euromillions jackpot remains frozen at €185m, its highest allowable level, with any rollover funds being automatically added to the next jackpot.

Tonight’s National Lottery jackpot is expected to hit around €4m. Tickets for the next Euromillions draw are available until 7:30pm on Tuesday.
