The Roscommon Daily Million player who scooped the top prize of €1,000,000 in the draw on June 16th has officially claimed their prize. The winning ticket was purchased at Casey’s Service Station on the Athlone Road for the draw last month.
The county’s new millionaire, who wished to remain anonymous, was over the moon when they realised their luck: “I was at home having a cup of tea when I heard that the top prize had been won in the 9 pm draw and as soon as news broke on where the winning ticket was sold, I checked my ticket straight away. I scanned it on the phone and of course got the message to say that I had won big.
“This is definitely the biggest prize I have ever won and I’m still a bit shocked so I think it might take a while for the news to really sink in to be honest,” the winner said.
