A syndicate of two left National Lottery headquarters in ‘Tip-Top’ form this afternoon after they collected a cheque for €1 Million which they won in Saturday’s 15th of April 2pm Daily Millions draw.

The syndicate, who wish to keep their win private, revealed the moment they realised they’d won the incredible prize: “We didn’t check the ticket until the day after the draw. My wife noticed that we had all the right numbers and we were just in complete disbelief! We couldn’t believe we’d become overnight millionaires”, he said.
“There were definitely some sleepless nights over the next couple days between trying to look after the ticket and letting the reality of the win really sink in. I hid the ticket in an envelope, on top of a cupboard in the utility room and checked on it everyday until travelling up to Dublin”, he added.
The syndicate expressed their excitement at all the choices and opportunities the newfound fortune will bring them, with a holiday of a lifetime being top of the priority list.
Daily Million draws take place twice a day, seven days a week at 2pm and 9pm and costs just €1 per play.
