A Dublin couple celebrated winning a cool €1m by stopping by their local church to say a prayer of thanks en route to the National Lottery Winners room to claim their prize.
The couple, who do not want to go public, revealed they were still stunned at news of their great win on the Daily Millions draw from Wednesday February 21st.
The couple joked that the Holy Spirit must have been looking over them on the day they played the game.
“I play Daily Millions regularly and checked my ticket in my local shop the day after the draw. The scanning machine told me to ring the National Lottery. But like any good man the first thing I did was ring my wife."
“We are still processing this big win. It is surreal but we are delighted” the winning husband said before his wife added that, "we called into the Church on the way in here today to say a prayer of thanks. This win will make a huge difference to us and will make life a lot more comfortable.”
The couple’s first priority is to pay off their mortgage on the family home and they will also consider giving some of their winnings to their adult children.
“However we have not told anybody at all about the win. We will wait a few weeks before we do. We want to let this sink in and we are determined it will be life as normal. We are both working and that won’t change” the husband concluded.
This is the first Daily Millions win of 2018.
Congrats to the lucky Dubs.
