A new diamond ring is high on the shopping list of a young Gawler woman who won a $1.45 million Saturday X Lotto prize on the weekend. 

The happy winner held one of the four division one winning entries nationally in Saturday X Lotto draw 4169, drawn Saturday 3 July 2021. Each entry takes home a division one prize of $1,455,804.95. 

When we called the Adelaide woman, she was completely oblivious she had become an overnight millionaire. 

“No, I didn’t! Are you serious? Are you kidding me?” she cried happily.

“Oh my god! That’s crazy! 

“I had absolutely no idea! Oh my god! Oh my god!

“I only bought a ticket into this draw because I had purchased a Powerball ticket last week, and I didn’t win anything, so I thought I would play Saturday X Lotto instead. 

“I only ever buy tickets into the really big draws, so I just don’t believe this! I would never usually buy myself a Saturday X Lotto ticket. 

“When I bought the ticket, my partner said that if I became a millionaire, he’d be quitting his job! 
“I can’t wait to break this news to him. I doubt he’ll want to finish off the day. He’ll probably jump straight in my car. 

“Absolutely, I will celebrate today! I think I will take my family out for a really nice lunch. 

“I can’t believe I am a millionaire! Thank you for making my day.” 

When asked how she planned to enjoy her million-dollar windfall, the jolly winner said it had come at the perfect time.

“We’ve been trying to save for a house for so long,” she admitted. 

“So this means we can finally get our dream home!

“I also have been wanting a new diamond ring, so I might get myself one of those. 

“And we might celebrate by going away for a weekend.” 

The overjoyed winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased her 6-game QuickPick entry online at thelott.com – Australia’s official lotteries.
