EuroMillions Jackpot Won Twice In A Row

A magical week for EuroMillions has seen the jackpot won in successive draws, adding to a great run of success for players since the start of the summer. A Portuguese participant scooped €17 million on Tuesday, just four days after a prize of €28.9 million was claimed by a ticket in Ireland.

The lucky Irish player has quickly made contact with officials regarding their prize, but has not yet come forward to collect the money as they want to take a bit of time to seek out professional advice. Local reports in Ireland suggest the ticket belongs to a small family syndicate, and they have decided to stay anonymous.

The entry was purchased at Garryduff XL Stores on Pound Road in Castlebar, Co Mayo. Remarkably, it is not the first time that a jackpot-winning ticket has been sold in the town, after someone who played in Staunton’s Costcutter Express scooped €15 million in April 2014.

As well as the two jackpot winners over the last week, more than 3 million prizes have been given away across the last two draws. Visit the EuroMillions Results page to find out all the latest winning numbers and prize breakdowns.

The EuroMillions jackpot has also been won three times out of the last four draws, after a UK player banked £87.5 million (€100 million) in the Superdraw on Friday 30th June. A Belgian ticket holder previously landed the largest jackpot of the year, €153.8 million, on Friday 2nd June.

There have now been 11 jackpot winners in 2017, including two from Ireland, two from Portugal, two from Belgium and three from the UK. Anyone looking to become the 12th winner of the year on Friday night can choose numbers online or visit an authorised retailer in one of the participating countries.
