“It’s a blessing! An absolute blessing!”: Warwick woman in tears over division one fortune
A Warwick woman has described her division one win as a blessing, explaining she can suddenly breathe easy knowing everything has been taken care of.
The regional Queensland resident held one of the 11 division one winning entries nationally in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 4105, drawn Saturday 21 November 2020. Each entry takes home a division one prize of $549,405.38.
Confirming her win with us this morning, the woman said despite discovering the news over the weekend, she was still in shock.
“I’ve had 24 hours to let it all sink in and I still can’t believe it!” she laughed.
“I checked my emails on Sunday morning and saw that I had received an email to let me know I’d won a prize.
“I was sitting outside and quickly checked my ticket online. I just kept thinking ‘What? What? What?’.
“I couldn’t believe it!
“It’s a blessing! An absolute blessing!
“I’ve been playing Lotto every Saturday since the game began!
“I can’t believe this has finally happened.”
When asked how she planned to enjoy her division one windfall, she explained a weight had suddenly been lifted off her shoulders.
“It means no more panicking. I can just breathe easy knowing everything has been taken care of,” she said.
“I can pay off the mortgage and just relax.
“I want to be able to help my family.
“It’s such a wonderful feeling knowing that I’m in this position. It’s absolutely incredible!”
