LOTTO bosses have revealed the winning location of TWO life-changing Euromillions tickets after Irish punters won more than €1million in last night’s draw.
Friday night’s EuroMillions jackpot draw was worth more than €30 million, with one online player in Dublin falling just one Lucky Star number short of the jackpot prize.
However, they got all five numbers and one Lucky Star correct and thus claimed the second prize worth a whopping €695,068.
The winning numbers for the main EuroMillions jackpot draw were: 02, 13, 37, 38, 48 and the Lucky Star numbers: 05, 09.
The National Lottery has confirmed that a notification has now been sent to the user’s online account and a separate email to the lucky Dublin ticket holder.
And it didn’t stop there for players in Ireland.
The additional EuroMillions Plus draw produced another winner of the €500,000 main prize on offer.
The winning player chose their own favorite numbers on a Normal Play ticket and purchased it from the Tesco store on the square in the heart of the town of Tralee, Co. Kerry.
The winning numbers for the EuroMillions Plus draw were: 04, 06, 10, 12 and 20.
The National Lottery has urged players to check their tickets carefully and has asked lucky winners to get in touch as soon as possible to ensure they receive their prizes before Christmas.

WIN A SCRATCH CARD
Elsewhere, a lucky punter is celebrating after winning the top prize of €100,000 on a €10 Christmas Countdown scratch card.
The winning scratch card was purchased from the Spar store on Kilmore Quay in Co. Wexford.
The winner admitted he only made the purchase by chance, making him a celebratory grand prize winner.
He said: “I wasn’t even planning on going to the shop that day. I stopped by to get a few pieces and when I was at the till paying I said I might as well get a scratch card and decided to get a Christmas card.
“I was sitting in the kitchen scratching around and as soon as I saw two of the fireplace symbols I kept my eyes peeled for the all-important third.
“When the three fireplaces were there in front of me, I didn’t react, there was no panic, nothing.
“I put the scratch card away and about ten minutes later I took it out again and it dawned on me how much I had won. I immediately signed it, took pictures and then made my plan to go to Lotto headquarters.”
