The holder of the winning ticket of last Friday's €39 million Euromillions jackpot made contact with the National Lottery on Tuesday.

"The jackpot rolled down and they only matched five main numbers and the bonus ball to bank the biggest sum won on Lotto in 2017".

The winning numbers for the €38,906,715 jackpot were 04, 08, 22, 23, 48 and Lucky Stars 01 and 12.

Treasure Hunt winners have one year from the drawing date to claim their prize, the Lottery said. "2017 was very lucky for our EuroMillions players with a record three Jackpot wins and 31 EuroMillion Plus wins of €500,000 each".

Finally, the winners of the massive sum have made contact with the National Lottery.

It was the third big win for Ireland a year ago: a Dublin syndicate won €88.5 million in January and a west of Ireland syndicate won €29 million in July.

"We are urging all our players to check their tickets to see if they are the lucky victor or winners".

It is expected the name of the shop that sold the winning ticket worth just under €40 million will be revealed on Thursday.

She added: "We also advise the victor or winners to get good independent legal and financial advice as this is an incredible amount of money".

The winning Quick Pick ticket was sold on Friday, December 29.

Dolores McNamara, from Limerick, was Ireland's first and biggest EuroMillions victor scooping over £102 million in 2005.
