Young Eyre Peninsula couple celebrate Christmas as millionaires
It’s not just Christmas cheer putting a smile on the faces of a young Eyre Peninsula couple, with the pair pocketing a $1 million division one prize in last night’s Monday & Wednesday X Lotto draw.
The winners held the only division one winning entry nationally in Monday & Wednesday X Lotto draw 3932, drawn Monday 23 December 2019. They take home the guaranteed division one prize of $1 million.
When we called the winning couple this morning, the wife immediately the revelation interrupted to make sure her husband could hear the life-changing news at the same time.
“Hold on! Hold on! I want to put you on speaker phone so my hubby can hear too!” she exclaimed.
“Thank you so much! It’s an amazing Christmas present!
“I only play sporadically. I go between buying online and popping into an outlet.
“I marked my numbers at random. They weren’t special beforehand, but they definitely are now.
“I don’t know how we are going to wipe the smiles off our faces for the rest of the day!”
“I don’t think the news has really sunk in yet,” the husband added.
When asked how they planned to spend their life-changing windfall, the thrilled couple confessed they were looking forward to house-hunting in the new year.
“We’ll definitely be buying a house but after that we don’t know!” the wife declared.
“It will well and truly be an amazing feeling to own a house debt free.
“It’s just fantastic! We are pretty excited!”
The overjoyed couple, who wish to remain anonymous, purchased their 6-game marked entry online at thelott.com – Australia’s official lotteries.
