Craigmore woman still in shock after $439,000 X Lotto division one win
A retired woman from Craigmore is still in a state of disbelief after discovering she is now over $439,000 richer from winning division one in Saturday’s X Lotto draw.
The north Adelaide winner held one of the nine division one winning entries nationally in Saturday X Lotto draw 3901 drawn on Saturday 8 December 2018. Each entry took home a division one prize of $439,800.84.
When we contacted the winner this morning, she couldn’t help but exclaim in disbelief.
“Oh my god! I hadn’t checked my ticket! Oh my goodness. Thank you!” she exclaimed.
“How much is that again? I’m going to have to write that down. I don’t believe it!
“I’ll need to ring my sons and let them know! I don’t think they will believe me – I don’t believe it actually! I just don’t believe it!”
When asked how she planned to spend her X Lotto windfall, the incredulous winner revealed her sons were at the top of her Lotto List.
“I’ve been playing for quite some time, and then thought I’d play it for my sons so I’ll definitely share it with them,” she said.
The regular player, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased her 18 game QuickPick entry from Craigmore Newsagency, Shop 6 & 18 Craigmore Village Shopping Centre, 176-190 Yorktown Road, Craigmore.
Craigmore Newsagency team member Mary Qin said she was excited that her outlet had sold a division one winning entry.
“What a thrill!” she exclaimed.
“When we found out the good news that we had sold a winner we all got very excited.
“It’s just amazing to help one of our winners realise their dream of winning the lottery!”
