Beginners luck resulted in a one million euro jackpot for one Cork family who played the Daily Million for the first time on Wednesday.
The lucky family won the top prize in the Daily Million draw and admitted that they only entered as they won the ticket in a previous Lotto draw.
The lucky family who wish to keep their win private said that while their €1m win is truly a win of a lifetime, the ongoing situation with coronavirus has put everything into perspective.
The winning father said: “The most important thing for our family is that we are all safe and healthy but this €1 million will give us something to look forward to once everything is back to normal in the country.” The winning Daily Million ticket was picked up at Murphy’s Centra store in Rochestown, Co. Cork.
“We’ll certainly take some time out before we make any big decisions on how we’ll spend the money. Once we’re out the other side of all the Covid-19 restrictions and things get back to normal, we’ll throw a big party for our entire family to celebrate the win properly. “ The dad said.
“Of course we’ve talked about how we’ll spend it and we’ll do all of the sensible things like mortgage payments and maybe a little holiday to cheer us up once all of the restrictions are lifted. We will be sharing a lot with family members as well, but we have plenty of time on our hands to make those arrangements over the coming weeks.” Daily Million draws take place twice a day, seven days a week at 2pm and 9pm and costs just €1 per play.
