A lucky Cork National Lottery player may be unaware that they have landed a cool €1 million prize from a special EuroMillions Raffle on 23rd February.

The National Lottery revealed on Wednesday that it has still to hear from the holder of the winning Quick Pick EuroMillions ticket purchased at Eason’s in the Wilton Shopping Centre in Cork City on the day of the draw. The draw included a special EuroMillionaire raffle with 25 guaranteed prizes of €1 million across participating EuroMillions countries. There was one Irish winner of the prize.

A spokesperson said the lucky winner has just one month left to claim their prize, which is due to expire on Thursday 24th May. The winning raffle code of the €1 million raffle prize was I-DKB-06633.

National Lottery chief executive Dermot Griffin is appealing to all EuroMillions players to check their tickets ahead of the prize expiry deadline. “Ticket holders have 90 days from the date of the draw to claim their prize in person at National Lottery Headquarters on Abbey Street in Dublin. We have no idea if this is somebody who is unaware of their good fortune, or if they know and are taking their time to make their claim. But we urge anybody who bought a EuroMillions ticket in Cork two months ago to check their numbers just in case. Sometimes players buy a ticket, leave it aside and forget. Check your homes, cars, pockets or anywhere you might leave a ticket. They can be checked in store or through the National Lottery App.”

Every week there are in excess of 100,000 Euromillions cash prize winners in Ireland, and the National Lottery always urges its players of the importance of checking their tickets after every draw.

If you’re the lucky ticket holder, sign the back of the ticket and contact the National Lottery Prize Claims Team on 01-8364444.
