EuroMillions winner contacts National Lottery 20.02.19

THE National Lottery has confirmed that it has been contacted by the winner of last nights mega 175 million EuroMillions jackpot.
A spokesperson said the ticket holder has contacted Lotto HQ and will be guided through the prize claims process.
"We can confirm we have heard from the holder of the winning ticket but are not in a position to give any more details at the moment. We hope to be in a position to say where the winning ticket was sold later today."
The record-breaking win eclipses the 115 million won by Limerick Woman Dolores McNamara in July 2005. It is the 14th Irish EuroMillions win since the game was launched in Ireland in 2004.
National Lottery CEO, Dermot Griffin, said: "We are delighted the winner has made contact. This is an incredible win for an Irish EuroMillions player and a record win for the National Lotttery, we are thrilled."
"This has been an incredibly lucky period for players on the island of Ireland. In January a Northern Ireland couple won an amazing 127 million in the EuroMillions jackpot. The luck of the Irish is definitely in the air."
The EuroMillions has been rolling over for several weeks. The maximum jackpot of 190 million has only ever been paid out three times in the history of EuroMillions.
