Inner-city Brisbane woman’s morning commute interrupted by million-dollar phone call
An inner-city Brisbane woman has received a phone call she’s always dreamt of as she walked to work this morning with the news she’s started the day a millionaire.
The city office worker held one of the three division one winning entries nationally in Monday & Wednesday Gold Lotto draw 3873, drawn Wednesday 29 May 2019. She scored the guaranteed division one prize of $1,000,000.
The woman’s morning commute was interrupted by a phone call from us to break the life-changing revelation.
“Oh my god! My heart is beating so fast!” she cried with joy.
“Oh my god. I can’t believe this!
“I’m literally walking to work!
“Wow! I’ve dreamt of this phone call for years! Thank you so much!
“I literally can’t believe this is happening! This is so exciting! It’s incredible!
“Oh my god! One million dollars!
“I’ve been playing for years and years and years and I always knew I’d win eventually but I thought I would be in my seventies!”
The winner told us after years of dreaming of this exact moment, she knew exactly what she’d do with her windfall.
“What aren’t I going to do!? Holidays! I love to travel! Maybe buy a nice little house by the beach,” she laughed.
“I can’t believe this is a reality now and I actually have to decide what to do with one million dollars.
“I think an early retirement could be on the cards! It would be great to even just work part-time!
“I’ve got goosebumps and I’m shaking and my heart is pounding.
“This is surreal! So surreal!
“This is the most incredible phone call of my life.”
The woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased her winning entry online at thelott.com – Australia’s official lotteries.
