Set for Life delivers second First Prize winner in less than a fortnight!
Less than two weeks after a Set for Life entry purchased in the regional town of Gunnedah won First Prize, New South Wales has chalked up another Set for Life win with an entry from the Sydney suburb of Gymea scoring 1st Prize in draw 263 on Monday 25 April!
A couple in their 50’s from Sydney’s southern suburbs were told the life-enhancing news this morning that they’re Set for Life and will now receive $20,000 each and every month for the next 20 years!
“Oh wow!” the winning husband whispered before admitting, “I feel like I’m about to burst into tears! My wife’s here with me and she’s just stunned at this news!
“I checked my Set for Life entry this morning and I knew that I’d won a prize, I just didn’t know how much until now!
“All I can say at the moment is that a lot of good will come from this win. I’ve been wanting to make a career change and now with this win I’m a step closer.
“This gives us so many possibilities but first we’ll take care of our priorities – we’ll be able to look after our children and set them up in life and I’ll be able to also spend more time with them.
“Obviously this also means we’ll be able to travel, I’ll have the time to go fishing and we can take family holidays!
“I feel like my feet won’t touch the ground for a very long time,” the winning husband laughed as the exciting news sunk in.
The winners have chosen to remain anonymous.
The First Prize winning Regular QuickSET ticket was purchased at Gymea Newsagency, 32 Gymea Bay Road in Gymea.
Jim Purcell is the co-owner of Gymea Newsagency and said he was proud that his outlet had sold a Set for Life First Prize winning entry.
“It’s fantastic to not only know that one of our customers is Set for Life but we’ve played a part in their life-changing event!” Mr Purcell exclaimed.
