A lucky punter who won a prize in the ‘Ireland Only Raffle’ of the EuroMillions draw who bought their winning ticket in Co. Cork does not have a lot of time left for claiming their prize.
The bosses at the National Lottery have been appealing to the lucky winner to come forward to win their €50,000 prize before their ticket becomes invalid and their winnings disappear.
The ticket was for the EuroMillions’ ‘Ireland Only Raffle’, which had been conducted on December 13th, 2022.
The National Lottery has asked players from Cork City in the Turners Cross area to take a look at their tickets to see if they have landed the €50,000 prize in the draw, which remains unclaimed.
The lucky winner had bought the ticket on December 11th, Sunday, in Cork City at O’Hare’s Mace, which is located at Turners Cross.
It was a Normal Play ticket, which means the player had chosen the number themselves and not opted for a Quick Play.
The winners are given a time period of 90 days from the date of the draw to come forward for claiming their prize, which means there are just a little over two weeks left for the Cork winner to come forward.
The claim deadline for the €50,000 prize will come to an end on Wednesday, March 15th, 2023.
The winning raffle code was NPZ88051 – NPZ88052 for the ‘Ireland Only Raffle’ of the EuroMillions lottery that was held on December 13th, 2022 on Tuesday.
The National Lottery
A spokesperson for the National Lottery has called on all EuroMillions players in the Cork city to check their old tickets carefully for the December drawing to ensure they do not miss out on the opportunity of claiming their prize.
The spokesperson said that all EuroMillions players who had purchased their tickets from O’Hares Mace should check their tickets because they are running out of time to come forward and get their winnings.
The winner is also instructed to sign the back of the ticket and to make the claim by getting in touch with the National Lottery via phone, or via email.
