Cash in EuroMillions jackpot hits €200m cap as Wexford winner scoops €500K prize

As the maximum jackpot cap has now been reached, all the jackpot prize excess will flow down into lower prize tiers.


The National Lottery has said the EuroMillions jackpot is in “unprecedented territory” after hitting €200 million for the first time in the history of the game. 

As the maximum jackpot cap has now been reached, all the jackpot prize excess will flow down into lower prize tiers.

This means that as well as the €200 million jackpot still up for grabs, there is the potential for even more Irish players to be made millionaires in Tuesday night’s draw.

The announcement was made as it emerged how the residents of a small village in Co Wexford are checking their EuroMillions tickets today after the National Lottery confirmed a €500,000 winning ticket was bought in the town.

The winning Quick Pick ticket with the magic numbers: 01, 03, 37, 41 and 46, was sold at Hammel’s Centra store in Kilmuckridge.

Meanwhile, the biggest National Lottery win of the year was announced in Cork this week as a winning €10.7 million ticket was sold in Rochestown.
