Thornton couple begin retirement as millionaires after Saturday Lotto win
A newly-retired Thornton couple are planning a never-ending holiday around the world after scoring division one in last weekend’s Saturday Lotto Superdraw.
The New South Wales pair held one of the 14 division one winning entries nationally in Saturday Lotto draw 3963 on Saturday 13 July 2019, with each entry taking home a division one prize of $1,428,571.43.
Sharing their excitement with us this morning to confirm their win, the woman relived the life-changing revelation.
“Isn’t that awesome,” she laughed.
“Thank you love. Thank you.
“It’s all happening. Oh my god! I can’t believe it.
“We just retired a couple of months ago!
“It’s funny because I wasn’t feeling well yesterday so I went down and checked my lottery tickets.
“I scanned my ticket and the girl told me she needed to call the head office.
“I had no idea what was going on. When they said it was division one, I thought they had to be joking.
“I had no idea that in this little bag of mine was a winning ticket of almost $1.5 million. It’s amazing!”
The husband and wife said their win couldn’t have arrived at a better time in their life.
“This will change our retirement so much,” she said.
“We’re going to help our children and whatever we want, we can get.
“We’re all going on a family holiday to Disneyland, and my husband and I will travel the world.
“It’s a big relief!”
The happy couple, who wish to remain anonymous, purchased their winning entry at Cooranbong Newsagency, Shop 7, 559 Freemans Drive, Cooranbong.
