A Chirnside couple have toasted to their platinum wedding anniversary while also revelling in the surreal glow of their million-dollar win in a recent Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw.
The Melburnians held one of the two division one winning entries in Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw 4390, drawn Monday 13 May 2024 and took home a total prize of $1,000,000.00.
“How am I feeling? Overjoyed!” the winning husband laughed.

“I took the ticket over to Chirnside Lotto Agency, which is my local newsagency, and I checked the ticket yesterday morning. 
“The team member told me I had won a major prize, and I couldn’t believe it. I went straight into my car and drove home!
“My wife is in tears as we speak! She’s overwhelmed.
“It’s all happening. We only just celebrated our 70-year wedding anniversary as well.
“I’ve won $4,000 before and had to claim the prize at the head office but now I’ll be going back for a million-dollar win.

“Thank you so much.

“We will look forward to helping our family with the win.”
Their winning entry was purchased at Chirnside Lotto Agency, Shop 643, Chirnside Park Shopping Centre, Maroondah Highway, Chirnside.
Chirnside Lotto Agency owner Martin Baillache said he was stoked to have another division one winner as it had been 12 months since the outlet’s last one.

“We’re so pleased! It’s always exciting when we have a division one winning entry as it brings our staff, customers and community together,” he said.

“We’ve told some of our customers already that have been coming in and they’re over the moon for us. 

“It’s great to hear the division one winning entry has gone to a local and regular customer and we really hope the win changes their life.”
