Tamworth couple who accidentally bought a Lotto ticket that landed them $1 million has declared the win is “a lovely way to finish a crappy year off”.    

The New England residents held one of the four division one winning entries in Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw 4039, drawn 30 December 2020. They take home a division one prize of $1 million. 

“Wow! This is the biggest shock! I’m absolutely gobsmacked” the winning woman exclaimed when we confirmed her prize. 

“This ticket was actually a mistake. My husband thought he was buying into Powerball, but he actually got a Monday & Wednesday Lotto ticket. When he realised, he just thought he’d keep the ticket. I’m glad he did! 

“I’ve just about had a heart attack. 

“I think I’ll just spend the next few days being shocked. It’s just came out of nowhere. 

“This win will help us out immensely. It’s a lovely way to finish a crappy year off.” 

The winning duo, who wish to remain anonymous, purchased their entry at Shoppingworld Newsagency, Shop 18, Tamworth Shoppingworld, Bridge Street, Tamworth.
