Two best mates who meet up every weekend at the local pub for a pint are still smiling like to Cheshire cats, after winning €379,410 on the EuroMillions lottery.
Besides always meeting up at the pub to watch the football matches the pair always made sure that they also bought a EuroMillions ticket.
“For many years, we have met religiously in the pub every weekend to watch the football matches on TV and we would always club a few bob together to do the EuroMillions draw for the following Friday night. With the busy Christmas period, I forgot to check all of our tickets so I went into a shop to have them scanned before last weekend,” he said.
The ticket was a Quickpick euro lotto ticket for the draw that took place on Friday December 30, 2016. The lifelong friends made their dream of winning the lottery a reality and headed off to collect a life-changing prize together at the National Lottery offices in Dublin.
They have opted to keep their identities private after correctly matching the five main numbers and a Lucky Star number of €379,410 on Friday December 30 2016.
“Everybody wants to win the Lottery. You rarely ever believe that it could happen to you,” said one of the latest EuroMillions lottery winners.
“Our first ticket won €30 and I thought, fantastic! That’ll buy us a few pints. When scanned, the second ticket told me to contact National Lottery offices so I thought we might have won a little bit more. I just couldn’t believe it when I was told on the phone that we’d nearly won €400,000.”
He added, “I waited as usual to meet him in the pub at the weekend. When we sat down with two pints, I told him that we had won a few quid on the National Lottery over the past few weeks. I showed him the winning €30 ticket and he was delighted but I stopped him in his tracks to say that there was more good news.
“I then slipped him a folded up piece of paper with ‘€379,410’ written on it. It was a lovely moment. We just sat there, grinning like Cheshire cats as we both came to terms with our massive win.”
