Western Sydney couple embrace new millionaire status with Wednesday Lotto win
A Western Sydney couple are rightly feeling like millionaires today after discovering they won division one in last night’s Wednesday Lotto draw.
The New South Wales husband and wife held one of the two division one winning entries nationally in Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw 3879, drawn Wednesday 19 June 2019.
Each entry took home the guaranteed division one prize of $1 million.
When we contacted the man to break the life-changing news, he quickly got his wife on the other line so she could also hear the revelation.
“Excellent!” the man exclaimed.
“That’s very good! Thank you so much!
“I’ll buy a beer this afternoon to celebrate!
“I had no idea!
“We always play the same numbers, last night our special birthday numbers won us $1 million!
“It feels so good! It’s unbelievable!”
Although they both loved their jobs, the couple revealed their unexpected million-dollar fortune would speed up their plans for retirement.
“I was going to be working for another couple of years but I’ll be able to retire a bit sooner now,” the woman explained.
“We’re pretty simple people, we love our family and we can’t wait to be able to look after them and help them out.
“It will be great to be able to spend a little bit more money here and there and not have to worry about it.
“We might dabble in a little bit more travel! We’ve always wanted to go to Italy to celebrate our anniversary!”
The happy couple, who wish to remain anonymous, purchased their winning marked 8-game entry at Plumpton Marketplace Newsagency, Shop T19, Plumpton Marketplace, Cnr Hyats Road & Jersey Road, Plumpton.
Plumpton Marketplace Newsagency owner Carlos Khair said he couldn’t believe his outlet had another division one win.
“This is our third division one win in just over six months. We sold shares in division one winning syndicates in October and January, and now this big one!” he exclaimed.
“Oh man! I was really surprised when I found out. I’m really happy for our winner and it’s just great news for Plumpton. We’re celebrating and have decorated the store with balloons.
“We on a winning roll and Plumpton seems to be a bit of a hotspot for wins. We can’t wait to do it again and change another customer’s life.”
