X Lotto million-dollar windfall ‘worth the wait’ for Seaford couple
A Seaford couple have been revealed as the area’s newest millionaires after taking home a $1,428,571.43 division one prize in Saturday X Lotto draw 3841, drawn Saturday 12 May.

“I’d gone out for the Sunday paper and when I was there I grabbed the results slip for the Saturday night’s draw,” the happy husband explained.
“Then I went home and checked my numbers there. When I saw that I had won I had to ask my wife to double check the numbers!
“I’ve been playing since 1970 and it’s definitely been worth the wait!”
When asked how they planned to spend their Saturday X Lotto windfall they immediately disclosed their plans.
“I’ll help out my son and my grandchildren and pay the house off!” he declared.
“A new car! Our car is 15 years old!” the wife added.
When asked how they planned to celebrate the win, the winning wife said she still had to get over the shock.
“We’ll have to think about how we will celebrate. Let’s get home first and get over the shock of the win,” she said.
The over-the-moon couple who wish to remain anonymous, purchased their winning entry 18-game Quickpick entry at Port Noarlunga South Foodland, 228 Seaford Road, Seaford.
Port Noarlunga South Foodland manager Clint Stephens said the outlet was excited to celebrate their latest win and unite the winner with their prize.
“It’s really good to have sold the winning entry,” he explained.
