THE WINNER OF last night’s €175 million EuroMillions jackpot has been in contact with the National Lottery.

A spokesperson said the ticket holder contacted Lotto HQ and will be guided through the prize claims process.

It has also been confirmed that the winning ticket was sold in Reilly’s Daybreak in Naul, Co. Dublin.

A spokesperson for the National Lottery told RTÉ’s Today with Sean O’Rourke that the winning store would receive €25,000 for selling the winning ticket.

The winning numbers were 1, 8, 18, 19 and 39. The lucky stars were 7 and 9.

In all, the ticket is worth €175,475,380.

National Lottery CEO Dermot Griffin said that “this is an incredible win” for the Irish EuroMillions player.

“Whilst this is a massive win it can come as a shock to a player and we advise them to stay calm, to get good independent legal and financial advice and contact us as soon as they can.” 

While there is only one winner, it didn’t stop people around the country joining in on the fun of the announcement last night on social media.

This is the 14th EuroMillions win in Ireland since the game was launched here in 2004. 

The lucky player in Ireland has now become the highest ever winner of a National Lottery game after winning the €175 million.
