Penrith couple pinching themselves after $1.9 million discovery
A Penrith couple say they’re pinching themselves after this morning discovering they were holding a Saturday Lotto ticket worth almost $2 million.
The western Sydney players held one of the two division one winning entries nationally in Saturday Lotto draw 4005, drawn Saturday 7 December 2019. Both entries took home a division one prize of $1,962,497.08.
Confirming their win with us this morning, the newly retired pair said they couldn’t believe their good fortune.
“We just checked the ticket!” the winning woman exclaimed.
“I couldn’t believe my eyes! It was such a shock to the system.
“I told my husband to pinch me! I thought I was dreaming.
“It certainly still hasn’t sunk in. “We feel very lucky.
“We always play the exact same numbers and have been for years and years.
“I can’t believe they came up! We are so excited.”
The pair said they couldn’t wait to see the prize hit their bank account, revealing there would be big changes to their retirement plans.
“We will help out the kids,” they said.
“Maybe even buy a new caravan! We love to travel in the caravan.
“It still doesn’t feel real at the moment so we really aren’t sure about the rest!
“We will just have to wait and see!”
The winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased her winning entry at Southlands Newsagency, Shop 8, Southlands Shopping Centre, 2 Birmingham Road, Penrith South.
