Marion woman jumping out of her skin after discovering $1 million Monday X Lotto win
A Marion woman has declared she is jumping out of her skin with excitement after discovering she won $1 million in Monday’s X Lotto draw.
The happy winner held one of the two division one winning entries nationally in Monday & Wednesday X Lotto draw 3992, drawn Monday 20 July 2020. Each entry took home a division one prize of $1 million.
Sharing her joy with us this morning, the winner recounted how she discovered the life-changing win.
“Oh, my goodness! You have no idea how I feel. I’m jumping out of my skin. I’m so excited!” she exclaimed.
“I’ve never experienced anything like this before. It’s absolutely fantastic news. I’m still pinching myself.
“A million dollars! My goodness!
“I actually checked my ticket yesterday morning. I always make myself a cup of tea and sit down with the newspaper and check my ticket against the numbers in the paper.
“I checked the numbers and right there on the first line were my numbers staring right back at me.
“I double-checked the draw, and the date were correct and exactly matched what was in the paper.
“I thought to myself ‘I’m dreaming. This is a dream’. “So I called a family member and got them to check it, and they said to me ‘If you’re dreaming, I’m in the same dream because it is true’!”
When asked how she planned to enjoy life as a newly-minted millionaire, the generous winner said that although she was still in shock, she couldn’t wait to help others.
“I’ll be in la-la land for a little while, so I’m not sure how I am going to spend it all,” she laughed.
“I’m still a bit overwhelmed. I do know that I am going to share it amongst my family, and there are three charities that I want to send some money to.
“They are all really worthwhile causes, and I’d love to help them as much as I can.”
The winning entry was purchased at City Cross Lotteries, Kiosk 4, City Cross Shopping Centre, Rundle Mall, Adelaide.
City Cross Lotteries manager Jenny Herbertt said she was thrilled the winner had claimed her prize.
“We are so happy for our winner. We are so pleased she has discovered her win!” she exclaimed.
“We’ve had a very busy couple of days with people checking their tickets so it will be great to be able to tell our customers the winner has come forward.
“Congratulations to our winner! We wish her all the best!”
