Could You Become Ireland’s Biggest EuroMillions Winner?

Postby » Mon 18 Dec 17, 15:45

An Irish player could be set to make history this week after the EuroMillions jackpot climbed to an extraordinary €135 million. Nobody from the country has ever scooped such a large prize, but ticket holders will be buoyed by a number of recent big wins and the dream of bagging a substantial sum of money just before Christmas. The record for Ireland’s biggest win stands at €115.4 million, and belongs to Dolores McNamara. A part-time cleaner, McNamara snapped up the nine-figure EuroMillions jackpot on 29th July 2005, and the high mark is still waiting to be surpassed. There have been a few bigger jackpots given away to players in other countries, and the cap of €190 million has been reached on three occasions. Adrian and Gillian Bayford from the UK scooped €190 million in August 2012, before a Portuguese player equalled the feat in October 2014 and then a Spanish ticket holder did the same in October of this year.
