“My stomach is doing flips!”: Forster woman in a spin over division one win
A Forster woman’s workday has been interrupted in the best way possible, with the news she was one of the weekend’s Saturday Lotto division one winners.
The Mid North Coast resident held one of the 11 division one winning entries nationally in Saturday Lotto draw 4105, drawn Saturday 21 November 2020. Each entry takes home a division one prize of $549,405.38.
The unassuming winner finally answered our call while she was on her lunch break.
“Are you for real?” she began to question.
“Are you kidding me?
“Is this serious?
“Oh my god. My stomach is doing flips!
“I don’t know what to do with myself. Oh my god. Thank you!
“This is wonderful. I don’t know if I’ll be able to keep working for the rest of the day.
“This is unreal. Thank you very much!”
When asked what she thought she might do with her division one fortune, she didn’t need a moment to consider her plans.
“I’ll pay off my house,” she declared.
“It will be absolutely wonderful to never have to worry about another mortgage repayment.
“Oh my god this is so unbelievable. I can’t believe I’m having this conversation.
“I don’t know if I will keep working full-time. I’ll definitely cut down my hours.
“Honestly, I can’t get my head around this. I’m completely in shock!”
The life-changing entry was purchased at newsXpress Forster, Shop 120, Stockland Forster, Breese Parade, Forster.
newsXpress Forster employee Bev Tait said she was thrilled to see the prize go to a local.
“We’re just so happy,” she said.
“We were so excited when we realised we’d sold this winning ticket and to know it’s gone to one of our regular customers is really great news.
“We’re so happy for her and we have no doubt she will enjoy her prize!”
