A lucky Galwegian is €500,000 richer after the National Lottery revealed that its Daily Million Plus top prize was won by a player in Athenry.
The National Lottery is now asking its Daily Million players in Athenry and its surrounding Galway areas to check their tickets. The winning ticket was bought at Joyce’s Service Station, The Arch on the Caheroyn Road, Athenry.
A delighted Pat Joyce, owner of Joyce’s Service Station said; “It’s a lovely bit of news to get and some great news for the town so to have sold this winning ticket is very exciting. Our customers in the service station tend to be regulars from the local town so hopefully one of them is finding out that they are half a million better off today. Congratulations to the winner and I wish them the very best for the future.”
This is the second major National Lottery win at one of Mr Joyce’s stores in less than a year as last June a winning Lotto ticket worth €4,051,610 was sold at Joyce’s Supermarket in Doughiska.
A National Lottery spokesperson said; “For the second Thursday in a row, the afternoon Daily Million Plus top prize has been won. We are now encouraging all our Daily Million players who may have stopped for fuel at Joyce’s Service Station in Athenry to check their tickets at lottery.ie or by using the National Lottery app to see if it is you who has won this prize.”
“If you are this lucky winner you can contact the National Lottery prize claims team. If you are the lucky winner, please sign the back of the ticket and contact our prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email [email protected] and we will make arrangements for you to collect your prize once restrictions are lifted due to the on-going public health emergency.”
The winning Daily Million Plus numbers from the draw were: 01, 03, 08, 09, 23, 27 and the bonus number was 33.
