Syndicate from West of Ireland collect €29m Euromillions jackpot win at National Lottery headquarters today
A syndicate from the West of Ireland walked out of National Lottery headquarters instant multi-millionaires today after collecting their spectacular €29 million EuroMillions jackpot win.
The group – who do not want to go public on their new-found fortune – travelled to Dublin from the West of Ireland to claim their life-changing jackpot win.
A spokesperson for the group said news of their massive win on last Friday’s EuroMillions is only now sinking in.
The group realized their win last Saturday when one of the syndicate members checked the EuroMillions numbers. The other syndicate members were then informed.
The winning quick pick ticket was purchased from Umesh Kumar’s Garryduff XL Store on Pound Road, Castlebar, on Friday July 6th.
Incredibly this was the second EuroMillions Jackpot win for Castlebar, and the 11th EuroMillions Jackpot win in Ireland since it began in 2004. And it brings to over €1 billion the total Irish EuroMillions winnings to date.
In April 2014 a jackpot prize worth a massive €15 million was claimed on a ticket sold in Staunton's Costcutter Express in Castlebar. On that occasion the winner also did not go public.
