Waterford mother in shock after winning €105,000 Euromillions prize
There were no tricks, only treats for four separate winners at National Lottery headquarters in Dublin today as players from Kildare, Limerick, Louth and Waterford picked up a massive €471,385 in prize money between them from the EuroMillions game.
There was complete and utter shock for a Waterford mother who claimed her €105,000 EuroMillions raffle prize after she initially believed that she had only won €105.
The lucky mum who purchased her ticket at the Coolagh Centra Station in Dungarvan checked her ticket the morning after the draw and was delighted with her €105 prize until she was told that it was €105,000!
“When I checked my ticket initially, I actually thought it was €105 and I was so happy with that. When I went to claim the prize in the store, I was told that it was €105,000. It really is a dream come true! This money is for my children so we’ll put it aside for a couple of weeks before we make a plan for it,” she said.
There was also joyous scenes for the biggest winners of the day, a delighted family from Co. Limerick who scooped a €156,385, as well as winners from Kildare and Louth who attended Lotto HQ today.
