Moss Vale grandmother to give big with $1 million Wednesday Lotto win
A Moss Vale grandmother says her dreams have today become a reality after hearing the news she won division one in last night’s Wednesday Lotto draw.
The New South Wales woman held one of the two division one winning entries nationally in Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw 3881, drawn Wednesday 26 June 2019.
Each entry took home the guaranteed division one prize of $1 million.
Confirming her prize with us this afternoon, the woman revealed she had no idea she’d been holding onto a million-dollar entry.
“Unbelievable!” she exclaimed.
“Thank you very much.
“I’m a bit shaky in the legs actually. I had no idea what I was in for when I got on the phone to you.
“I’ve probably been buying tickets for 50 years but I never ever thought I’d win the lottery!
“This is something that you dream of!
“It’s just unbelievable! It certainly hasn’t sunk in. I can’t come to grips with the news.”
The generous grandmother said she’d use her prize to give big.
“I’ve got kids and plenty of grandchildren to spoil. I’ll be able to help set them up a little bit that’s for sure,” she said.
“And I will be supporting some local charities. I’m pretty well set up myself but if I can help others then that’s the best thing.”
The winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased her marked entry at Moss Vale Newsagency, 19 Clarence Street, Moss Vale.
Moss Vale Newsagency owner David Reid said he was thrilled to have sold the outlet’s 21st division one winning entry.
“We were busy on the counter this morning and a staff member told me that one of our customers won a million dollars,” he said.
“I thought it was great. Great for us and exciting for our customer.
“Wins like this always create a buzz. We’ve been spreading the word this morning.
“We are known as the lucky Moss Vale newsagency because we’ve sold so many winning tickets. It’s nice to get to 21 division one wins.
“We wish our winner a big congratulations and I hope they enjoy their prize.”
