Euromillions players around the continent have experienced a tremendous couple of weeks, and one syndicate from the West of Ireland is a part of the group of people who had the most luck during this period of time. They scooped an astonishing €29.000.000 jackpot and officially came forward to claim it shortly after the draw took place. Follow in their footsteps and become the next lottery multi-millionaire – a €203.200.000 Mega Millions windfall awaits!
The members of the fortunate syndicate correctly matched the numbers 11, 20, 35, 37 and 45 with Lucky Stars 3 and 6 in the Euromillions draw on July 7th. The golden ticket was purchased from the Garryduff XL Store located on Pound Road in Castlebar, and the group realized it was the winning one when an unidentified member of the syndicate checked the numbers on Saturday.
“It has been a roller coaster week with lots of butterflies in our stomachs and lots of different emotions. But we are keeping level heads and we will try to take it all in and we will give it time before we decide what to do with our winnings,” said a syndicate spokesperson, who wished to remain anonymous like the rest of their co-workers.
Dermot Griffin, chief executive of the Irish National Lottery, advised them to get independent financial and legal help, and it seems like they’re following suit. They didn’t make any rash decisions, because the news are still sinking in, and they want to plan for the future carefully.
“This has come as a huge shock but we are thrilled. This will certainly make life easier for us all and will secure our futures,” said the syndicate spokesperson.
