Posted on: 07 Jan 2022

Daily Million customers in Kildare urged to check their tickets carefully


An Applegreen customer who purchased their ticket for Wednesday’s 2pm draw (5th January) at a busy service station close to the Kildare and Meath border has become the first official National Lottery millionaire of 2022 after winning the top prize of €1 million.


The winning Quick Pick ticket was sold on the day of the draw at the Applegreen M4 Enfield Westbound Service Station in Martinstown, Cadamstown, Co. Kildare.


Site Manager Ella Tyrala was delighted to hear that one of their customers has become the biggest winner of the year so far: “This is great news to get during the first week of the year! We are delighted that one of our customers has now officially become a millionaire. The entire team was over the moon when we received the news from the National Lottery. We hope that the lucky winner checks their ticket soon and enjoys their life-changing win.”


The National Lottery are continuing to urge Daily Million players who purchased their tickets for Wednesday’s 2pm draw at the Applegreen M4 Enfield Westbound Service Station to check their tickets carefully as the winner is yet to come forward. The winner 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 claims@lottery.ie and arrangements will be made for them to claim their prize.


Daily Million draws take place twice a day, seven days a week at 2pm and 9pm and costs just €1 per play.


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 34 years ago. In 2020 alone, €254 million was raised for local Good Causes in communities across Ireland.
