“It’s magic!”: West Lakes couple floored by $1 million Wednesday X Lotto win!
A West Lakes man admitted that when he told his wife they’d won $1 million in last night’s X Lotto draw, she was so surprised that she fell over and started crying and shaking.
The happy winners held one of the two division one winning entries nationally in Monday and Wednesday X Lotto draw 4127, drawn 3 November 2021. They take home a $1 million prize.
Speaking with our team this morning, the elated husband relayed how the pair discovered their life-changing $1 million win.
“I am so glad you’ve called! I’ve been sitting here, just waiting by the phone,” he laughed.
“I found out late last night. I scanned my ticket on The Lott app. I couldn’t believe it!
“My wife was in the kitchen, and I just looked at her and said, ‘Honey, I’m not sure if my phone is playing up, but I think we’ve won one million dollars!’.
“She actually fell over, the poor thing! Once I showed her it on the app, she broke down into tears and started shaking.
“I kept scratching my head about the whole thing! I couldn’t believe it! It really hasn’t hit me yet.
“When we went to bed last night, I kept trying to go to sleep, but my wife just kept talking about what to do with our prize.
“I asked her to keep it down so I could try and sleep and she just said, ‘How can you sleep at a time like this? Aren’t you excited?’.
“Of course I was excited! But I needed to know for sure before I made too many plans.
“When I woke up at around three in the morning, I wasn’t sure if I had dreamt it all. So, then I got the torch out and checked my ticket again and got excited all over again.
“It’s just magic! We are definitely going to celebrate tonight now we know it’s real.”
When asked how they planned to enjoy their prize, the South Australians declared it would be used for the future.
“We have been wanting to retire for so long, but we really haven’t been able to,” the stoked man explained.
“I told my wife last night that she can be the one to retire straight away. She works so hard, and she deserves to relax as soon as possible. I’ll retire in a few years.
“It means we will have a really nice retirement.
“We’ve had a few financial setbacks, so this changes everything for us. It couldn’t have come at a better time!”
Their winning marked System 8 entry was purchased at West Lakes Lotteries Kiosk, K11 West Lakes Shopping Centre, Brebner Drive, West Lakes.
West Lakes Lotteries Kiosk owner Pat Sepe said he was delighted to hear a local couple had won the division one prize.
“How incredible is that!” he said.
“We’re in the business of making dreams come true and that’s exactly what we’ve done with this couple.
“We’d love to send our congratulations to the winning pair. We couldn’t be happier for them!
“There’s been quite a few big wins here and we always get so excited when we have another.
“We’ve been sharing this amazing news with all of our customers. They have all been so happy for us and for the winners.
“Hopefully we can deliver more division one wins and make more dreams come true soon!”
