Dubliner finds lotto ticket worth half a MILLION while cleaning up

IMAGINE cleaning up your room, finding a Euromillions ticket and poof! You've just won €500,000. It would be pretty sweet, right?

Well, that exact scenario has just happened to a man in Dublin.

According to The Journal, the man, who wants to remain anonymous, said that his wife asked him to clean up a pile of papers, and he couldn't believe what he found.

"I was cleaning up a pile of old tickets and I just started checking them on my phone. When I saw that I had won the plus draw, I had to keep scanning my tickets with my wife to make sure we had won.

“It’s hard to imagine that I had a €500,000 winning ticket rolled up into a ball on my floor for three weeks.”

The winning ticket was a quick pick selection and was purchased in Ballsbridge, Dublin 4.

When asked how he'll spend his good fortune, the Dubliner said: "We are going to pay off our mortgage first and foremost while the rest of the money will be put towards our children’s education over the next number of years.”
