€87 million lottery ticket sold in Ireland
The National Lottery has not released any information about the retailer that sold the €87 million EuroMillions ticket
. The winning ticket holds the numbers 6, 8, 34, 38, and 48, in addition to the lucky stars 3 and 9. One thing’s for sure: the winner is an Irish punter.
No further details are available as the National Lottery wants to protect the winner's identity, which is obvious considering the magnitude of the jackpot. “At this stage we can’t release details about the winning ticket for security and safety reasons
. The winner first needs to come forward before we can unveil details about the owner of the lucky ticket”, a spokesperson for the National Lottery noted.
Lucky lottery streak
Irish lottery fans have benefited from lady lucky in the last fifteen months. A Dublin resident took home €94 million in cash thanks to a winning EuroMillion ticket
in the summer of 2013. One year ago, another punter from Waterford City bagged a €12.8 million lottery jackpot. Last month, a syndicate of work colleagues from Co Mayo collected their €50 million bonanza.
