Check your National Lottery tickets - last chance to claim life-changing €1 million prize

Check your Lottery tickets!

The National Lottery has issued a final plea to all EuroMillions players to check their tickets as the deadline to claim a €1 million prize, won in February in County Cork, is tomorrow, Thursday May 24, at 5.30pm. 

The winning Quick Pick ticket was sold at the Eason Store in the Wilton Shopping Centre in Cork City on the day of the draw, Friday, February 23. The draw included a special EuroMillionaire raffle with 25 guaranteed prizes of one million euro across participating EuroMillions countries. There was one Irish winner of a million.

The winning raffle code of the €1million raffle prize was I-DKB-06633.

Last week a National Lottery delegation visited the Eason Store in the search for the lucky ticketholder but since then nobody has come forward. 

National Lottery Chief Executive, Dermot Griffin, today called on all EuroMillions players to check their tickets ahead of tomorrow evening’s prize expiry deadline saying: “With just over 24 hours to go until this deadline,  I am once again appealing to all of our players, especially those in Cork, to check old tickets. Rummage in your handbags, wallets or purses, check on top of the fridge,  the glove compartments of the car, coat pockets, wherever you keep your tickets as somebody has won this prize and it would be a fantastic story if the winner was to find out about their good fortune at the last minute.”

Ticketholders have 90 days from the date of the draw to claim their prize in person at National Lottery Headquarters on Abbey Street in Dublin. Tickets can be checked in store or through the National Lottery App. If you’re the lucky ticketholder, sign the back of the ticket and contact the National Lottery Prize Claims Team on 01 836 4444.
