ONE lucky Cork person is €500,000 richer this afternoon after winning the star prize in the latest prize bond draw.

The bond number is BAE152273 and was purchased in 2022.

The sun must be shining on Cork as this is the second big prize winner of today, as earlier it was announced that a store in Bandon had sold a winning EuroDreams ticket – with the lucky recipient guaranteed €2,000 per month for the next five years.

There were over 9,214 prizes awarded in this week’s prize bond draw, amounting to over €1,267,900.

In addition to a €500,000 prize awarded on the last weekly draw of every calendar month, there are weekly draws where the top prize is €50,000. Other cash prizes awarded each week include 20 of €1,000 and 20 of €500.

Prize bonds are a state savings product which, instead of paying interest, offers bond holders the chance to win cash prizes every week. All winnings are tax-free, and prize bonds can be cashed in at any time after the minimum holding period of three months.
