Euromillions jackpot 'won by 22 Dublin Bus drivers'

A syndicate of 22 Dublin Bus drivers won last week’s €23,845,060 Euromillions jackpot, it has been reported.

According to The Sunday World newspaper, one of the drivers based in the North Dublin Broadstone garage said: “Yeah it was us alright … We haven’t all spoken to each other yet so I’m not even sure how much we will walk away with.”

It is understood no one has come forward to officially claim the prize as of yet.

Neither Dublin Bus nor National Lottery officials can confirm the reports - with the Lotto saying the claims process can only begin when its office opens tomorrow morning.

National Lottery spokesman Ronan Leech said yesterday: “We won’t actually be announcing the location, or indeed when the ticket was sold until next week.

“But what we could advise, naturally, to all our players, would be to check their tickets.

“If you have those numbers, we would advise you to put that ticket somewhere safe, sign the back of it, and get in contact with us as early as you can next week.”

It is the ninth time that the Euromillions jackpot has been won in Ireland.

This week’s EuroMillions and EuroMillions Plus draws produced in excess of 50,000 Irish prize winners in total, including an Irish Match 5 winner of the main EuroMillions Draw who will pick up €55,282.

There was no winner of the EuroMillions Plus jackpot of €500,000.
