Irish Euromillions player one number away from €68m jackpot but still scoops windfall
One Irish ticket holder has won a very large prize tonight but they were just one number away from a monster prize.
Tonight's winning numbers in the EuroMillions draw were: 24, 33, 09, 01, 34 and the Lucky Star numbers were 02, 06.
Nobody in Europe had all seven to scoop the massive €68,205,610 jackpot but three players, including one in Ireland, were one number short.
They matched all five numbers and one Lucky Star, winning €297,860 each.
No details have been released as yet as to where the ticket was sold.
There was no winner in the EuroMillions Lotto Plus draw.
The winning numbers were 12, 13, 37, 40 and 45.
And, as always, 10 ticket holders have won €5,000 each in the Raffle.
