Afternoon delight as Meath Daily Million player wins €500,000 from Ashbourne petrol station stop
A chance stop at a Meath petrol station has today made one lucky person €500,000 better off today as the National Lottery revealed that this afternoon’s Daily Million Plus top prize was won.
The National Lottery is now asking its Daily Million players in Ashbourne and the wider Meath and Dublin areas to check their tickets. The winning ticket was bought today at the Circle K Service Station in Ashbourne, Co Meath which is close to the Meath and Dublin border.
A National Lottery spokesperson said: “What an incredible bit of luck for one Daily Million player who may have just, by chance, stopped to put some fuel in the car earlier today and tried their luck and bought a Daily Million ticket. We are now encouraging all our Daily Million players who may have stopped for fuel in Circle K in Ashbourne 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. It has been a really positive day for National Lottery winners as the winner of last weekend’s €9.7 million Lotto jackpot, won in Co. Kerry, made contact earlier today. On last night’s Lotto draw, two separate Dublin online players won the Lotto Plus 2 top prize, worth €250,000, and a Lotto match five and bonus prize of €37,358.”
The winning Daily Million Plus numbers from today’s 2pm draw were: 07, 13, 19, 25, 27, 35 and the bonus number was 31.
The National Lottery spokesperson advised: “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 firstname.lastname@example.org and we will make arrangements for you to collect your prize once restrictions are lifted due to the on-going public health emergency.”
Daily Million and Daily Million Plus draws take place at both 2pm and 9pm, seven days a week.
