The life-changing jackpot amount was scooped by a lucky player who reportedly purchased the ticket in Spain, lottery bosses said. The winnings numbers were 12, 16, 23, 33, 41 with 8 and 10 as the lucky stars.
According to the Irish Mirror, someone else picked up more than £100,000 after matching five numbers and the lucky star.
Every ticket gets automatically entered into the Millionaire Maker prize draw which guarantees one millionaire will be made.
The EuroMillions draw takes place every Tuesday and Friday and the jackpot can rise up to £167million.
A spokesman for operator Camelot said: “More prize money will go into the jackpot – plus there will be a prize cap increase to 200M euros (up from 190M euros) – meaning an increased chance of bigger jackpots more often.
“The changes, which will also see more special promotional draws in the year, came into effect from 1 February, with the first draw on Tuesday 4 February 2020.
“EuroMillions UK Millionaire Maker guarantees to create a millionaire in every draw, but in the EuroMillions draw on Tuesday, February 4, an additional 19 lucky winners will be able to look forward to becoming an overnight millionaire.
“For every EuroMillions line played, UK players automatically receive a EuroMillions Millionaire Maker code printed on their ticket.”

Camelot’s chief executive Nigel Railton said the organisation was able to handout the biggest financial contribution to coronavirus support outside the government.
Mr Railton said: “There was a period where we thought we might not be able to trade EuroMillions and retail might collapse.
“The combination of all the interventions we made means right now we are trading [at] about the same levels as we were pre-COVID-19.
“It’s a bit precarious because none of us know where disposable income is going this year and how this virus will play out.”
