Saturday X Lotto dream come true for Mansfield Park pensioner
A Mansfield Park pensioner has spent the last few days in an ‘absolute dream’ after discovering she had won division one in Saturday X Lotto draw 3801 on 23 December 2018.
The thrilled woman was one of 10 division one winning entries across Australia in Saturday X Lotto draw 3801 on Saturday 23 December 2018, each of whom took home a division one prize of $420,040.92.
Speaking to a SA Lotteries official this morning to confirm the win, the happy woman described the aspirational way she chose her numbers.
“I’ll let you in on a secret to how I chose my numbers, I’ve always fancied living in a particular suburb in one of the beautiful houses they have there,” the woman explained.
“So I bought two tickets at an agent over there, and then I just play them again at my local agent in Mansfield Park.
“I’ve always said to my newsagent that I don’t care how much, as long as I win something worthwhile one day.
“I was only saying the other day I wanted $20,000 so I could pay off my car and buy a golf buggy. We’ll be buying that home – that’s what we are going to do!
“It’s a wonderful way to start the New Year!”
The happy winner revealed her dreams were still alive and she would continue to play X Lotto.
“I’ll still be playing it! I like the lotto! I’ve been playing for about 45 years!
“I’ve been buying regularly from this agent for about four years so I came in to surprise them this morning – we were jumping for joy again!”
The winning 18-game QuickPick entry was purchased from Mansfield Park Lotteries and Post Office, Shop 1, 270 Hanson Road, Mansfield Park.
Susan Barfield, owner of Mansfield Park Lotteries and Post Office said she was thrilled to have sold the outlet’s first division one winning entry.
“It is our biggest win yet! It’s just fantastic! We’ve only sold division two before so we are thrilled one of our customers has won division one!” she exclaimed.
“We are so happy it is a regular customer and we were able to celebrate with them in store.
“It is absolutely amazing for them and we wish them all the best with their prize!”
