You can almost sense the electricity in the air for when the EuroMillions jackpot winner’s name would be announced. The €66 million jackpot made some serious waves in the online lotto world. Read further for all the details.
The word ‘EuroMillions’ was on everyone’s lips for the past two weeks. On the 29th of January, one of the lucky winners scooped half of this jackpot as the other winner came from France. The winner is now the fourth largest EuroMillions jackpot winner in Ireland’s history.
On the 1st of February, they finally came forward to claim the prize that would change their lives forever as we know it. No details about the lucky winner have been released as yet.
After the big win was announced, there was a lot of focus and attention surrounding John Brady’s store. John owns the Mace store in the fishing village that allegedly sold the winning EuroMillions ticket. He had to deny the win, though, because he still hadn’t heard anything from the lottery commission as yet. “I got about four phone calls from different shop owners in Wexford town. They were all asking me if I was the one who sold the winning EuroMillions ticket. But we haven’t been told a thing. I’m sure we would know by now."
The gossip and speculation then switched into overdrive when a Facebook post showed up of a group of women enjoying a meal. It had the following caption: “Spending out Lotto winnings.” It actually turned out to be them celebrating a €250 win and not a £33 million win.
Even if Mr Brady did indeed manage to sell the winning ticket, he told the press that he won’t be looking through his camera surveillance to find out the winner’s identity. “It would have me going mad. It would come out as well. It just wouldn’t be right,” said the calm store owner.
Who knows? The winner might even decide to make a small donation to the store for keeping their identity on the down low until they are ready to come forward.
The winning EuroMillions numbers in the massive 29th January draw were:
1-5-23-29-32 and the two Lucky Stars 1 and 7.
