Are you €500,000 richer this morning? Winning EuroMillions ticket sold in well-known Laois shop


Someone in Laois could be waking up half a million richer this morning.

The National Lottery has confirmed that a EuroMillions ticket worth €500,000 was sold in Laois.

And LaoisToday can confirm that the ticket was sold in Bosco’s Gala on Grattan Street in Portlaoise.

The ticket was sold yesterday and was a Quick Pick selection.

The shop is owned by Ratheniska man Bosco Ramsbottom and has a busy trade on the Mountrath Road area of town.

Ramsbottom also owns Bosco’s Catering and is a regular presence at a variety of events and functions around the county.

An eye-watering €230million was up for grabs in last night’s EuroMillions draw but the largest Irish win was €500,000 in the Plus draw.

The lucky numbers needed to claim the prize last night were: 14, 18, 24, 25 and 50 with lucky stars 6 and 11.

Although no one scored the jackpot, in total over 82,000 players in Ireland won prizes in the EuroMillions and Plus games.

Lotto bosses said: “There was no winner of the EuroMillions jackpot. In total over 82,000 players in Ireland won prizes in the EuroMillions and Plus games.

“There was one winner of the Plus top prize. The winning ticket was sold in Laois.”

The location of where the winning ticket was sold has not yet been disclosed.

The win comes a day after it was confirmed that someone in Laois could potentially now be a millionaire.

The search for a new millionaire continues as the National Lottery revealed the shop in which the ticket was sold.

The winning ticket was bought in Tesco, in the Laois Shopping Centre and it was also confirmed that the lucky winner has yet to come forward.

Daily Million draws take place twice a day, seven days a week at 2pm and 9pm and costs just €1 per play.

The winning numbers in Sunday’s (10th July) 2pm Daily Million draw were: 02, 05, 13, 19, 28, 35 and the bonus was 17.

A spokesperson said: “The National Lottery has urged Daily Million players in Laois to check their tickets carefully as Sunday’s top prize winner is yet to come forward.

“The weekend winner is advised to sign the back of their ticket and keep it safe.

“They should contact the National Lottery prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email claims@lottery.ie and arrangements will be made for them to claim their life-changing prize.

“Nearly 30 cent in every €1 spent on all National Lottery games goes back to Good Causes in the areas of sport, youth, health, welfare, education, arts, heritage, and the Irish Language.

“In total more than €6 Billion has been raised for Good Causes since the National Lottery was established 34 years ago.

“In 2021 alone, €289 million was raised for local Good Causes in communities across Ireland.”
