“Wow! Thank you so much.
“My mum and I bought the ticket together!
“On Sunday morning mum was checking the results in the paper with the ticket and then I came over to pick her up and go out for lunch.
“She said to me ‘I’ve got something to tell you. I think we had all six numbers in last night’s lotto.
“Then I scanned the ticket on the app and it told us we had a win.
“I kept checking the numbers over and over. I couldn’t believe it!
“Yesterday I went down to the newsagency just to make sure and that’s when I finally believed the news!”
