Western Sydney couple wakes up to million-dollar Monday Lotto win
A Western Sydney couple has cried tears of joy after hearing the life-changing news they won more than $1 million in last night’s Monday & 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 3842, drawn Monday 11 February 2019.
They take home the guaranteed division one prize of $1 million.
Their entry also won in division two 6 times, division three 6 times and division four 15 times, boosting their total prize to $1,030,101.25.
When we contacted the couple this morning to break the life-changing news, they both broke down in tears of joy.
“This better not be a joke!?” the man initially questioned.
“Isn’t that fantastic!
“Thank you. You’ve made my bloody day!“I feel good. I feel bloody good actually.
“My wife is so excited she can’t stop crying!”
The thrilled winner revealed to us he’d been playing Monday & Wednesday Lotto for most of his life and had always dreamt of one day becoming a millionaire.
“I feel absolutely on top of the world!” he exclaimed.
“I’ve only just retired so this really couldn’t have come at a better time.
“This will be so nice for my retirement. I’ll be taking my wife to Europe to celebrate.
“I really don’t know what to say.
“Thank you so much for this fantastic news.”
The winning Monday & Wednesday Lotto ticket was purchased at Supanews Xpress Bankstown, Shop 207, Centro Bankstown, Corner of North Terrace and Lady Cutler Avenue, Bankstown.
Supanews Xpress Bankstown owner Shahida Khan said she couldn’t be more excited for her customer.
“We sold a winning 1st Prize Lucky Lotteries ticket only a few months ago so it’s great to hear we’ve sold another winning entry so close to the last,” she said.
“We wish our customer all the very best and hope they enjoy their prize.”
