A Daily Million player on the North side of Dublin became the 10th Daily Million top prize winner of 2023 in Saturday afternoon’s (9th December) 2pm draw. The winning Quick Pick ticket was purchased on the day of the draw at the Centra store at the Texaco service station on the Malahide Road in Dublin 17. 

Store manager Gierdre Argustiene was delighted when she heard the news: “There has been a lot of excitement in the store today between the media attention and word spreading about the win. All of the staff here were thrilled when they heard and now the customers are joining in the buzz with all of the action going on in here today. This is the biggest prize that this store has had so we are keeping our fingers crossed that the winner checks their ticket soon and realizes they are now a Millionaire. And of course, with the lead up to Christmas – there couldn’t be a better time to win!”

The winner, who is yet to make contact with the National Lottery, now has a ticket worth a life-changing €1 Million. Ireland’s newest National Lottery Millionaire is advised to sign the back of their ticket and make contact with the prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email claims@lottery.ie and arrangements will be made for them to claim their prize at Lotto HQ. 

That wasn’t the only Daily Million winner of €1 Million! Also claiming a big Daily Million prize from Lotto HQ was a workplace syndicate who claimed a €1 Million top prize which they won on the 9pm draw on Thursday 9th November. The work group who wish to keep their win anonymous purchased their ticket online at  www.lottery.ie

Before they make any plans for spending their €1 Million winnings, they all plan to take a break over Christmas and enjoy their time at home with family. The head of the syndicate said: “There’s never a bad time to win a Million euro but getting it before Christmas is absolutely perfect! We all have our own families so I think all of the pre-existing Christmas plans and presents have been upgraded to help celebrate the win. Since the win, we haven’t gone mad in work so we’ll go home with the cheque today and take some time off over Christmas before we go mad with any spending plans.”

And the winning didn’t stop there. Another family syndicate from Co. Wicklow claimed a €266,633 prize which they won on the €200 Million EuroMillions draw on Friday 1st December. The delighted family group matched five numbers and one lucky star on a ticket which they purchased at the Nearby store, locally known as ‘Carmel’s’ in the heart of the Killarney Park housing estate in Bray Town. 

They said, “Everything about this win was just brilliant. Having that level of excitement coming into our house after that draw was so special to share together. It’s a huge sum of money and we are over the moon, I can’t imagine what it would had felt like if we’d have won the full €200 Million! We’re more than happy with the win and it will go a long way towards paying off our mortgage and we’ll even have enough money left over for some much-needed home renovations.”

Nearly 30 cent in every €1 spent on all National Lottery games goes back to Good Causes in the areas of sport, youth, health, welfare, education, arts, heritage, and the Irish Language.
