"As news spreads throughout the town, we have been inundated with our customers who are checking their tickets in the hope that they are one of the lucky winners. We would urge all of our customers to check their tickets carefully and we wish them all the very best with their huge win.

"To celebrate this win with our customers, the store owners here will kindly share the stores selling bonus among all of the staff members so we all have a little extra to celebrate today," she added.

With no jackpot winner of Tuesday’s €163 million jackpot, Friday’s EuroMillions jackpot is now estimated at €180 million.

Last night’s EuroMillions draw produced the 22nd and 23rd winners of the €500,000 Plus top prize.

Irish players are on course to break the record set in 2009 when 27 lucky players won the EuroMillions Plus top prize.
