Newbridge store sold Lotto jackpot ticket worth over €10 Million in 2015
Daily Million players in Kildare urged to check their tickets from Thursday’s 9pm draw
It has been a life-changing week for a Daily Million player in Kildare who became the 34th National Lottery millionaire of 2023 following Thursday’s 9pm draw.
They scooped the top prize of €1 million after purchasing their Quick Pick ticket on the day of the draw at the Centra Curragh Grange shop in Newbridge.
The Newbridge store is no stranger to big National Lottery wins as they also sold a Lotto jackpot ticket worth €10.2 Million in 2015.
Shop owner Alan Jordan was delighted to hear that another one of his customers has come into good fortune this week.
“It’s great to get the phone call from the National Lottery to say that one of our customers has won a life-changing prize. I didn’t realise at the time that the winning ticket had even been sold in Kildare, so it was a double surprise. Back in 2015, there was huge excitement in the shop when we sold a Lotto ticket worth €10.2 Million. It was an historic draw as well if I remember correctly as the draw had been postponed and took place on the Thursday instead of the Wednesday due to a technical issue. As soon as word spreads about this win, I reckon there will be a great buzz around the place again. It’s not everyday that a customer becomes an overnight millionaire so here’s hoping they have checked their ticket and realised their luck was in!”
The National Lottery are continuing to appeal to Daily Million players in Kildare to check their tickets carefully from the 19th October 9pm draw as the winner, who now has a ticket worth €1 Million, is yet to come forward. Ireland’s newest millionaire is advised to sign the back of their ticket and to keep it safe. They should contact the National Lottery prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or email mailto:email@example.com and arrangements will be made for them to collect their life-changing prize in Lotto HQ.
Meanwhile, this week saw the National Lottery launch a new draw-based game called ‘EuroDreams’ which will offer an annuity top prize of €20,000 every month for 30 years. Tickets for the new game will cost €2.50 per line and will go on sale on Monday October 30th ahead of the first draw on Monday 6th November.
The EuroDreams game which is the first annuity type game of its’ kind in Ireland is a joint venture with Ireland’s National Lottery and seven other European countries. Draws will be held every Monday and Thursday. Players will pick six main numbers from 1-40 and one bonus number (called "Dream" number) from 1-5 to make up their combination.
The EuroDreams game comes almost 20 years after the EuroMillions was first launched in Ireland in 2004. Unlike other lottery draw-based games, the annuity top prize which is worth €7.2 Million will be paid in monthly tax-free payments of €20,000 spread over 30 years.
Tickets for the EuroDreams game will be available at usual National Lottery retail agents nationwide, as well as at www.lottery.ie and the National Lottery App. Tickets for the EuroDreams game can be purchased before the 7.30pm cut-off each Monday and Thursday. Similar to the EuroMillions game, draws will take place in Paris, France at approximately 8pm (Irish Time) on draw nights.
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. In total more than €6 Billion has been raised for Good Causes since the National Lottery was established 36 years ago. In 2022 alone, €259 Million was raised for local Good Causes in communities across Ireland.
