Hunt is On for €1 Million EuroMillions Winner in Cobh

In what could be a life-changing event for one lucky individual, The National Lottery is issuing an urgent appeal to all EuroMillions players who purchased a ticket in Cobh, Co Cork. The call comes following a special “Ireland Only Raffle” as part of the EuroMillions draw that took place on Friday night, where a stunning €1 million prize remains unclaimed. The winning ticket was sold at Corcoran’s Centra, a beloved local family-run store that has now entered the spotlight for what could be the most significant win in its history.

The special raffle draw, held exclusively for Irish players, saw ten unique raffle codes being generated, each winning €5,000. These ten codes were then placed into another draw, where one lucky code was chosen to win an additional €1 million on top of the initial €5,000, bringing the grand total prize to an eye-watering €1,005,000. The winning code, I-QQN-12284, is the golden ticket that holds the key to this immense fortune.

Alan Corcoran, the owner of Corcoran’s Centra, expressed his elation upon receiving the news. “I’m absolutely delighted; I cannot put into words what this means for us!” he exclaims, his excitement palpable. This marks a historic moment for the store, marking its first-ever huge win. “We just hope it’s one of our loyal regular customers. We’re definitely going to share this joy with our hardworking staff and give them a little treat,” Corcoran added. He emphasized the community spirit, proudly claiming, “They’re honestly such a mighty bunch, and we’re looking forward to celebrating with them. We’re also looking forward to the buzz this will create over the next couple of days, and we wish the winner every best with their prize.”

The National Lottery is now urging all players who bought their ticket in Cobh for the Friday draw to double-check their numbers and signature on the back for security purposes. They strongly advise winners to contact their prize claims team immediately by calling 1800 666 222 or emailing claims@lottery.

Sarah Ruane, a spokesperson for The National Lottery, has reiterated the appeal, urging players to meticulously check their tickets. “Friday night’s draw saw over 45,000 players in Ireland win prizes across the EuroMillions and EuroMillions Plus draws, with a Cork player officially becoming the biggest winner of the night after scooping €1,005,000 in the special Ireland Only Raffle,” said Ruane. “We are appealing to all of our players in the Cork area to make sure to check their tickets carefully, especially the Raffle codes, as one player has a life-changing prize waiting to be claimed.”

Ruane also outlined the next steps for the winner, stating, “The first thing the winner should do is sign the back of their ticket and keep it safe. They should then make contact with our prize claims team who will make arrangements for them to visit Lotto HQ to collect their incredible prize.” While the €5,000 is a respectable sum, the additional €1 million elevates this draw to an extraordinary level of excitement and anticipation.
