Grafton sisters “knocked over by excitement” after division one win
Two Grafton sisters have had their week turned upside down in the best way possible after hearing the news they won division one in last night’s Monday Lotto draw.
The Northern Rivers residents held the only division one winning entry nationally in Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw 3980, drawn Monday 8 June 2020, and take home the division one prize of $1,000,000.
This morning we reached out to the registered winner, who explained the prize would be shared.
“I feel so happy!” she laughed.
“Are you sure this isn’t a hoax?
“This is incredible! I play regularly and I always mark my entry but the numbers that won me division one weren’t particularly special numbers.
“In fact, I shared this entry with my sister!
“She’s going to be over the moon. I’ll go over and see her now to break the news.
“She’ll knock me over with excitement! I cannot wait.”
When asked how she planned to enjoy her half of the division one win, the retiree explained she’d be making big plans.
“Well I’ll certainly be travelling around the country plenty more,” she said.
“It will be fantastic to just not have to worry about money.
“And I know my sister will enjoy it very much! I’m sure she will want to do a bit of travel because she loves to travel as well.
“This is fantastic!”
The private syndicate, who wish to remain anonymous, purchased their 18-game marked entry at Grafton Shoppingworld News, Shop 59 Shoppingworld, 42 Duke Street, Grafton.
Grafton Shoppingworld News owner Rose Driver said it was fabulous news for the outlet and region.
“I’m just so happy we were about to bring this incredible amount of joy to these people,” she said.
“It’s wonderful to know it’s gone to locals, I am so happy to hear that. It’s a lovely thing!
“We sold a division one winning Set for Life entry not long ago so it’s great to add another one to the list.
“Congratulations to them!”
