LIFE CHANGING €500,000 EUROMILLIONS PLUS WIN FOR CORK FAMILY

A lucky player from Cork in Ireland says life has been a big struggle for his family in recent years but says everything will change now after he won a €500,000 EuroMillions Plus win.

The winner has asked to remain anonymous, that’s just like the recent $25m Australian Powerball winner from Victoria, Australia. He and his wife are still having problems believing they have won such a huge amount thanks to their EuroMillions Plus win. The lucky EuroMillions Plus winner recalled how he had found out about his big win and had it confirmed after phoning the National Lottery.

He then returned home and asked his children to go out and play as he had some news to tell their mother. His wife wasn’t sure what was happening and at first thought he’d lost his job meaning more financial worries to deal with. It was the complete opposite though as he told her they’d won half a million euros playing EuroMillions Plus.

It’s the latest big win in the county of Cork. Eugene O’Sullivan was celebrating after he was part of a €3.8m Irish Lotto winning syndicate. The couple may have won a huge prize, but they have been finding it difficult to sleep in the past few days. Speaking about his win, he said that they would do “a lot of sensible things” with the money and that includes clearing their mortgage and putting money aside for their children.

Their eldest child has been asking for years to go to Disneyland Paris and now thanks to this EuroMillions Plus win they can go there next year. £500,000 Thunderball winner Stuart Andrew Sussex from England went on a Disney Cruise with his winnings. Stephen Strickland from Maryland, USA, took his family on a cruise after winning a $100,000 Powerball prize.

Finances have been tough for the family over the past couple of years. “Month to month things have been tight and we’re always looking at where we can save money and even look to do overtime where I can,” said the EuroMillions Plus winner. A couple from Western Australia said that their $750,000 Australian Lotto win would take them out of “struggle street.”

His winning ticket was purchased from the O’Reilly Maxol Service Station, in Cork City. That’s a lucky store with two Irish Lotto jackpot winning tickets sold there in the past.
