Set for Life premonition comes true for Five Dock man
A Five Dock man now believes premonitions do come true after winning the First Prize of $20,000 a month for 20 years in the latest Set for Life draw – following a dream he had where he won the lottery.
The ecstatic man’s entry won the First Prize in the Set for Life draw on Sunday 16 September 2018.
The Sydney man is the third First Prize winner to land in New South Wales this calendar year, and the 42nd First Prize winner nationally since the game began.
When we spoke with the working man and his wife to confirm their win, they couldn’t contain their excitement at discovering the news.
“Oh my god, oh my god, $20,000 a month for 20 years?!” his wife shouted with glee.
“I am speechless, I can’t even think straight.
“This is great news, thank you so much! This is absolutely amazing.
“My husband only said yesterday: ‘I am telling you, before I retired next year I will have a win, I feel it!’
“We are going to be jumping up and down for days. I hope my husband doesn’t have a heart attack from excitement.”
The husband explained he always believed he was going to win Set for Life.
“Three weeks ago I had a dream where I won Set for Life,” he said.
“Then yesterday when we were sitting on the beach relaxing, I looked at my wife, grabbed her hands and I said to her, ‘We are about to win something, you just wait’.
“After that dream, I just had this overwhelming feeling that we were going to win, and turns out I was right!”
When asked what the happy couple planned to do with the 20K on replay, they admitted they already had a few plans.
“My husband will definitely retire early, and I will go part time. Then, we will go to Poland to visit family,” the ecstatic wife explained.
“We are moving to Surfers Paradise in Queensland next year because we brought a property, but it needs a lot of work. So some of it will go towards renovations as well.
“There are a lot of people who need help in this world, so we are definitely going to give a lot to a few different charities and start volunteering. It would be impossible to spend that much money, so I think it is important to help as many people as we can.”
The man, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his winning 2-SET entry at Wareemba Newsagency, 276 Great North Road, Wareemba.
