It has been a life-changing week for a Daily Million player in Kildare who won a huge €1 million top prize in Thursday’s Lotto draw.
And as bosses continue to call on players in the province to check their tickets, it is likely the National Lottery’s 34th millionaire of 2023 is not yet aware of their fortune.
The punter won the fortune after purchasing his Quick Pick ticket on the day of the draw at the Centra Curragh Grange store in Newbridge.
The Newbridge store is no stranger to big National Lottery wins after selling a Lotto ticket worth a whopping €10.2 million in 2015.
Shop owner Alan Jordan was happy to hear that another one of his customers got lucky this week.
He said: “It’s great to get the call from the National Lottery to say one of our customers has won a life-changing prize.
“I didn’t realize at the time that the winning ticket had even been sold in Kildare, so it was a double surprise.
“In 2015 there was great excitement in the store when we sold a Lotto ticket worth €10.2 million.
“If I remember correctly, it was also a historic draw, because the draw was postponed and took place on Thursday instead of Wednesday due to a technical problem.”
Alan said there will be a buzz around the city as word of the huge city spreads.

“Once word of this win spreads I think there will be a great buzz around the place again.
“It’s not every day that a customer becomes a millionaire overnight, so I hope they checked their ticket and realized their luck was in!”
The National Lottery continues to appeal to Daily Million players in Kildare to check their tickets carefully as the winner is yet to be announced.
Ireland’s newest millionaire is advised to sign the back of his ticket and keep it safe.
A spokesperson advised: “They should contact the National Lottery prize claims team on 1800 666 222 or by email and arrangements will be made for them to collect their life-changing prize at Lotto headquarters. “
The winning numbers were: 02, 15, 25, 32, 33, 35 and the bonus was 26.
It comes after the National Lottery this week launched a new draw-based game called ‘EuroDreams’.
The game offers an annual top prize of €20,000 every month for thirty years.
Tickets for the new game cost €2.50 per line and go on sale on Monday 30 October, ahead of the first draw on Monday 6 November.

Draws are held every Monday and Thursday, where players choose six main numbers from 1-40 and one bonus number (the so-called “dream number”) from 1-5 to create their combination.
