EuroMillions players on the Southside of Cork City are today being urged to check their tickets after last night’s EuroMillions draw produced a EuroMillions Plus top prize winner of €500,000.
So far this year, Irish players have won an incredible 17 EuroMillions Plus top prizes of €500,000. At a cost of just €1 extra per line, the EuroMillions Plus draw gives players an extra chance to win the half million euro prize.
The winning Quick Pick selection ticket was bought on Saturday 19th August at J.J. O’Driscoll’s Superstore on the Ballinlough Road on the Southside of Cork City.
The winning EuroMillions Plus numbers are: 01, 07, 14, 21, 46.
Serving the Ballinlough community in Cork since 1948, J.J. O’Driscoll’s Superstore is a family run independent store which is now run by brothers, Neil and Brendan.
Following the confirmation of their lucky win, ecstatic store owner Neil O’Driscoll said,
“What a fantastic win for the local area. We are based in the heart of a close-knit community just outside Cork City so we’d be fairly certain that it’s a local winner. We’ll definitely be raising a toast to the lucky winner in-store today and on behalf of the local community, we wish them all the very best with their win and we hope that they thoroughly enjoy it.”
