Parramatta woman not sure whether to laugh or cry after discovering $2 million win
A Parramatta mum has admitted she’d been dreaming about what she’d do if she ever won the lottery just days before discovering she scored $2 million in the weekend’s Saturday Lotto draw.
The Western Sydney woman held one of the 10 division one winning entries nationally in Saturday Lotto draw 4099 drawn Saturday 31 October 2020. Each entry won a division one prize of $2 million.
Confirming her win with us this afternoon, the overwhelmed woman explained she’d just made the life-changing discovery.
“Thank you,” she eventually managed.
“I just checked my ticket on my phone and called in straight away.
“I can’t believe it.
“I was just dreaming the other day about what I’d do if I ever won the lottery.
“I’d thought we’d buy a house, and now we can do that.
“My dream has come true. I can’t believe it!
“I don’t know if I want to cry or laugh.
“I was in Bateau Bay for a weekend away. I only bought the ticket on Saturday afternoon!
“This doesn’t feel real. I am lost for words!
“This is crazy. It certainly hasn’t hit me yet.”
When asked how else she planned to enjoy her Saturday Lotto fortune, she had one thing she wanted to tick off her bucket list.
“We’ve been trying to save for a holiday,” she explained.
“I’ve always wanted to take the children to Disneyland. I know we can’t go overseas at the moment, but certainly when we can, I will be doing that.
“This is a massive life-changer for me! I can’t believe it.”
The multi-million-dollar winning entry was purchased at Nextra Bateau Bay, Shop 53-59, Bateau Bay Square, 12 Bay Village Road, Bateau Bay.
Nextra Bateau Bay employee Rei-annen McTeare said it was the first division one winning entry the outlet had sold.
“We were so excited to come in on Sunday to realise we’d sold one of the winning tickets,” she said.
“We’re so happy to hear our winner has come forward.
“Congratulations to them. We hope they really enjoy their prize.”
