Sleepless Spring Mountain couple still coming to terms with “insane” $2 million win
An overwhelmed young Spring Mountain couple say they haven’t slept since discovering their life-changing, multi-million-dollar Saturday Gold Lotto win.
The Ipswich residents held one of the two division one winning entries nationally in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 3985 on Saturday 28 September 2019, with both entries taking home a division one prize of $2,002,612.29.
Sharing their excitement with us, the woman relived the moment she made the incredible revelation.
“Oh my god. It’s just crazy,” she laughed.
“This kind of thing just doesn’t happen to people like us!
“I checked my ticket on Saturday night and I’ve been wondering ever since if I’ve been dreaming!
“I was speechless. I couldn’t talk. I was shaking and crying.
“My husband was asleep next to me after the AFL Grand Final, I had to wake him up and tell him we’d won lotto but he wouldn’t believe me!
“I’ve hardly slept since. It’s very, very surreal.
“I’ve been looking at the results on the app every ten minutes since. I just can’t believe it.
“It’s insane. This is completely life-changing!”
When asked how she planned to enjoy her multi-million-dollar prize, the loving mother thought of her family first.
“We will be able to set our children up for their futures,” she said.
“We’re going to pay off the mortgage as well.
“We will keep working for now but we will be able to retire so much earlier than we ever thought!”
