A syndicate of two people left National Lottery headquarters in ‘Tip-Top’ form this afternoon after they collected a cheque for €1 Million which they won in Saturday’s 15th of April 2pm Daily Millions draw. 
The winning top prize ticket was sold at Spar in Borrisokane in Co. Tipperary. 
The syndicate, who wish to keep their win private, revealed the moment they realised they’d won the incredible prize:  The married couple say they didn’t check the ticket until the day after the draw and were in disbelief that they had become overnight millionaires. The couple also revealed that there were some sleepless nights taking care of the ticket until the trip to Dublin to collect the €IM prize.
The syndicate of two say it is exciting to consider all the choices and opportunities available but say a holiday of a lifetime being top of the priority list.  
The National Lottery reports that nearly 30 cents 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.
