Jackpot! One lucky person has scooped €175m in Ireland's biggest Euromillions win

Single winning ticket of €175 million Euromillions jackpot sold in Ireland.

The winning numbers were 1, 8, 18, 19 and 39. The lucky stars were 7 and 9.

The jackpot is worth €175,475,380.

People are being urged to check their tickets to see if they are the lucky winner.

The National Lottery has said they cannot yet confirm where the very lucky ticket was sold.

Spokesperson Miriam Donohoe says the winner needs to stay calm and make contact with them first thing tomorrow morning.

"Amazing news for one of our players.

It's the biggest ever National Lottery draw in the history of the lottery since we launched 31 years ago and we are advising all of our players to check your numbers to see if you are the holder of this golden ticket.

"If you do have this ticket please keep it safe, sign the back of it, contact us tomorrow as soon as you can and we'll guide you through the claims process."

It is the biggest ever Euromillions win by a single Irish person.

National Lottery CEO, Dermot Griffin, said: "The shop that sold the winning ticket will not be revealed for a few days.

With such a big win we have procedures to go through but we will reveal the winning location as soon as we can.

"Whilst this is a massive win it can come as a shock to a player and we advise them to stay calm, get good independent legal and financial advice and contact us as soon as they can."

"This has been an incredibly lucky period for players on the island of Ireland. In January a Northern Ireland couple won an amazing €127 million in the EuroMillions jackpot," said Mr Griffin.

"The luck of the Irish is definitely in the air."

This is the 14th Irish EuroMillions win since the game was launched in Ireland in 2004.
