When a group of Irishmen won €6 on an instant ticket, they decided to use the winnings to purchase a Euromillions entry. That may be the best financial decision they have made in a long time, maybe even all their lives.
The man from Birr, his aunt, uncle and two cousins won half a million euros in the Plus draw. Ironically, they only used their €6 winnings to buy the winning ticket, because it was too small to divide among them. Now each member of the group, who wish to remain anonymous, will take home €100,000.
