Lottery first-timer's $551,575 winner nearly ended up in trash

October 14, 2019, 8:27 pm ET

An Ireland man who bought his first-ever lottery ticket said the $551,575 winner nearly ended up in the trash at his local store.

The Dublin dad was thanking his lucky stars today in the Ireland National Lottery Winner's Room as he claimed his check for €500,000 (US$551,575), which was a top prize won in the EuroMillions Plus draw on Tuesday, October 8.

His winning Quick Pick ticket was bought at the Centra store on Grange Road in Rathfarnham, Dublin 14.

And he revealed that while he has no plans set in stone for the winnings just yet, he said that he was going to surprise his daughter and show her the check at the dinner table tonight.
