There were gasps of disbelief in the National Lottery’s winners’ room this afternoon after a family syndicate collected a cheque worth a whopping €500,000 – which they won in the EuroMillions plus draw last Friday.

The syndicate, who wish to remain private, spoke of what they did when they found out they’d won the incredible prize.

“I checked the ticket on the app and thought I’d won €500. I was absolutely delighted! I got another family member to come and check my phone to make sure my eyes weren’t deceiving me, and they were because I’d won €500,000!” said the ticketholder.

“I thought she was pulling one of these Tik Tok pranks on me”, said another syndicate member. “She was just way too calm”.

Despite the big win, it’s business as usual for the Kildare syndicate, who hope to keep life going as normal as ever.

“We’ve no plans yet, just really letting it all sink in. We’re very much looking forward to sharing the money with family to help them out”, they added.

The winning EuroMillions Plus ticket worth €500,000 was purchased on the National Lottery app.
