Galway punter scoops €500,000 Daily Millions prize

Someone in Galway is half-a-million euro richer after today’s Daily Millions draw.

The lucky punter scooped the €500,000 prize after winning the Daily Millions Plus top prize.

The winning Daily Million Plus numbers from today’s 2pm draw were: 1, 3, 8, 9, 23, 27 and the bonus was 33.

The ticket was sold at Joyce’s Service Station, The Arch on the Caheroyn Road, Athenry.

Pat Joyce, owner of the store, said it was very exciting to have sold the ticket.

“It’s a lovely bit of news to get and some great news for the town so to have sold this winning ticket is very exciting.

“Our customers in the service station tend to be regulars from the local town so hopefully one of them is finding out that they are half a million better off today.

“Congratulations to the winner and I wish them the very best for the future.”

It is the second major win for one of Mr Joyce’s stores.

Last June a winning Lotto ticket worth €4m was sold at Joyce’s Supermarket in Doughiska, Co Galway.
