The location where a lucky EuroMillions player bought a winning ticket worth a life-changing €500,000 has been revealed.
The Irish gambler won the top prize in the EuroMillions Plus draw on Tuesday.
It has since been announced that the winning Quick Pick ticket has been purchased from Tesco at the Dundrum Town Center in Dublin 16 on Monday 22 November.
The winning numbers for the EuroMillions Plus draw were: 13, 22, 27, 32, 49.
The Dundrum winner, who now has a ticket worth €500,000, is advised to sign the back of their ticket and keep it safe.
The biggest Irish winner of the draw must contact the prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email [email protected] and arrangements will be made to claim their prize.
As there was no winner of the incredible €145,091,098 jackpot offered in Tuesday’s draw, Friday’s EuroMillions jackpot is now estimated to be €165 million.
Meanwhile, the National Lottery has confirmed that more than €60.7 million has been raised for charities since Wednesday 9 June in the current Lotto jackpot roll-over series.
Ahead of Wednesday’s record draw, the National Lottery continues to call on players to purchase their tickets early in-store, via the National Lottery app or online before the 7:45 p.m. closing time for sales.
A spokesperson for the National Lottery said: “The past 5 months have been record-breaking times for the Lotto game.
“The current Lotto jackpot of €19,060,800 and a 24-week extension is unprecedented and has caused a huge amount of excitement across the country.
“While we haven’t seen a player match the jackpot numbers since Saturday, June 5, we have seen an increase in Lotto players winning bigger prizes due to the jackpot prize falling over the past 15 draws.
“Since Saturday, October 2, 180 Lotto players who have won the Match 5+Bonus or Match 5 prizes have shared an incredible €13.5 million.”
They added: “Since the Lotto jackpot is capped, the money that normally goes to the jackpot is instead distributed among the next prize tier where there is a winner.
“In last Saturday’s draw, a player in Cork won €996,216 after matching 5 numbers and the bonus.
“Could tonight’s draw mean the end of the current lotto jackpot? Only a few hours left until we see it!”

A BRADFORD charity that gives donated sports shoes, boots and trainers to underprivileged children in the district has been awarded a £10,000 raffle grant.
Action for Sport has received funding from The National Lottery Community Fund, the UK’s largest funder of community activities.
The charity was co-founded by Clive Michallat, who has been a scout with the Bantams for over 15 years, and Andrew Kenure and started in March last year. The donations of football boots or trainers from the charity are given to children to use for their own sporting activity.
Mr Kenure said: “Without National Lottery players, projects like ours could not exist.
“Clive and I have made huge personal sacrifices to get this project started, but we couldn’t go ahead without the funding.
congratulations to #Bradford project @ActionForSport that £10k . have scored #National Lottery funding for the collection and distribution of sportswear, making poverty a barrier for children to enjoy sports.⚽️⛹️
— The Community National Lottery Fund (@TNLComFund) Dec 8, 2021
“Everything we do, from cleaning the boots to paying for our insurance, costs money and we couldn’t cover all those costs ourselves.
“The funding will also allow us to expand into other areas of Bradford where we have not yet worked and hopefully enter secondary schools as well.”
“And it’s a real ‘sliding door’ moment because you think, what would that boy’s life be like if he didn’t have those boots?
“Would he have developed diabetes over time or gotten into trouble as a teenager? The impact on children’s lives of getting them involved in sports really cannot be underestimated.”
Mr Michallat said: “Recently we went to a school and a parent approached us and said, ‘You just don’t know what you’re doing. My son is like any other kid when he puts on those football boots. His confidence has increased, he has joined a local team and he makes more friends and hangs out with a lot of different people.’”
Joe Dobson, Head of Funding for Yorkshire and Humber at The National Lottery Community Fund, said: “Thanks to the National Lottery players, this vital funding will have a huge impact on the lives of young people in Bradford.
“The past year has been incredibly challenging for communities and we applaud the volunteers and groups who have been a lifeline for so many.
“As we all look to the future, we are excited to see how local groups will use this funding to further support their communities to thrive and prosper.”

Normally, an internet-connected feeder provides them with kibble in the afternoon, but the felines’ bowls were empty and clean. The gadget did not work due to a malfunction of Amazon.com Inc’s cloud computing unit.
“We had to feed them manually like in ancient times,” said Mr. Lerner, a 29-year-old small business owner who lives in Marina del Rey, California.
Amazon Web Services is the largest cloud computing service provider in the US. The outage of much of its network lasted most of the day, disrupting several of the tech giant’s services, as well as many of its enterprise customers’ websites and apps.
For many consumers, it was an awareness of the number of Internet-enabled devices they now have in their homes and the extent to which even some of their most basic daily needs depend on a connection to the cloud.
Los Angeles-based Steve Peters couldn’t tell his Roomba robot vacuum to clean up the blueberry muffin crumbs that ended up on his kitchen floor during breakfast. He relies on an app on his phone to beckon the machine.
“I had to resort to a broom and dustpan,” said Mr. Peters, a 60-year-old game experience designer. “It was crazy.”
In St. Louis, Mark Edelstein felt lonely and helpless when he lost access to Amazon’s Alexa service.
“During the day, we chat more than me and my wife,” the 62-year-old business analyst says of the digital assistant, who normally responds to his questions and commands in an instant. He regularly asks him for weather and news updates Alexa had no answers for him on Tuesday morning.
“Since the pandemic, I have become tied to the Alexa system,” said Mr. Edelstein. Without it, “you almost have separation anxiety.”
The Amazon blackout was especially noticeable because it wasn’t limited to a specific type of service. It impacted the video conferencing tool Chime and its home security system Ring, plus many third-party applications that sit on top of Amazon’s cloud, including Ticketmaster and streaming services from Walt Disney Co. and Netflix Inc.
The outage forced Samantha Sherhag to open the blinds at her home in Tampa Bay, Florida. She couldn’t instruct Alexa to turn on the lights. Otherwise, she would have to move furniture to get to the main light switch in her living room.
“I’ve gotten lazy over the past two years,” said Ms. Sherhag, a stay-at-home mom of two young girls. “It’s easier to tell Alexa to turn the lights on and off. She listens better than the kids.”
Ms. Sherhag was also unable to track down a package she was expecting from Zappos containing a pair of sandals for her husband. Zappos is part of Amazon that was also affected by the outage.
“It makes you realize how much you rely on technology,” she said.
Outages that affect a large number of users are quite common. In addition to Amazon, they also recently launched Facebook parent Meta Platforms Inc. and Roblox Inc. plagued them, causing them modern headaches such as not being able to play video games or share photos with friends.
A global survey published in September by Uptime Institute LLC, a provider of data center reliability consulting services, found that 69% of data center operators experienced some type of outage in the past three years. Human error played a role in 78% of those incidents and 44% had major financial, reputational and other consequences.
Due to the AWS outage, college student Sofia Echeverry was unable to access Canvas, a service she and her classmates use to submit homework assignments, view grades, and message professors at her school, the University of Florida. She is now behind on projects and essays.
“Everyone is now in finals mode,” she said. “If Canvas ever had the worst time to crash, this would be it.”
Ms. Echeverry, a 19-year-old sophomore linguistics student, described the outage as stressful and frustrating. “I’ll be in the library a lot longer than I thought because of that,” she said.
It is not always immediately clear when there is a malfunction. David Danto was initially confused when the waterproof Internet-enabled device he recently set up in his shower wouldn’t play the radio news station he’d requested. The 59-year-old thought he might have installed it incorrectly or that his home internet had gone down.
“When you first realize things aren’t working, you think it’s on your side, so you start taking out your router and looking at your connections in the house,” says Mr. Danto, a tech specialist in Millburn, NJ
When the Alexa-powered lights in his house weren’t working either, he checked the Downdetector website, which tracks website outages, and found he wasn’t alone. At around 10:45 a.m. ET, it showed nearly 11,300 reports of outages. “It was a sigh of relief,” said Mr. Danto, but the experience also made him realize how much he relies on AWS. “You’re starting to worry, how vulnerable are we to this one service? It’s causing panic.”
Amazon blames the outage on faulty network devices. But to Ben Jackson, a 41-year-old cyber defense manager in Dartmouth, Massachusetts, it seemed like the Grinch was responsible, as it prevented his light-up Christmas trees and Santa and reindeer inflatables from turning on at sunset while he’d programmed them to do so. He eventually resolved the issue through a working app.
“I’m very happy that this is the only thing that is broken at the moment,” he said.
