Imagine receiving an email with the news you won division one while sitting in a university lecture.
That was the reality for a 20-year-old Glenelg woman, who just discovered she’s now Set for Life and will receive $4.8 million during the next two decades.
The South Australian player scored the division one prize of $20,000 a month for 20 years in Set for Life draw 1845, drawn Monday 24 August 2020.
Upon hearing the news she’d won division one, the overjoyed woman broke down into happy tears.
“Oh my god!” she laughed.
“I am shaking!
“You have no idea the year I have had. This is huge for my family! It changes everything for us.
“Holy moly. I can’t think!
“This is incredible!
“I was actually at uni in a lecture and I checked my emails and saw one from you telling me I’d won something.
“I didn’t think much of it, so I just logged into my account quickly and that’s when I realised.
“I was shocked! But since I was in a lecture, I couldn’t really react. That was so hard because I just wanted to scream and jump up and down!
“I was just watching the clock, waiting for it to finish so I could call you back.
“It was the most suspenseful time of my life.
“This is insane! My mind is blown!
“I can’t believe I have just won $20,000 a month for 20 years! It’s $4.8 million! I am a multi-millionaire!
“As soon as I get off the phone to you, I am calling my mum to break the news to her.
“I will take everyone out for dinner tonight for celebrations!”
When asked how she planned to enjoy being Set for Life, the elated winner said she couldn’t wait to share it with her family.
“I really don’t know where to start. I am still going to finish university, because it’s something I really want to do,” she shared.
“I would love to buy my mum a house and I’d love to get myself one too.
“My mum also needs a new car, so I will get her one as well.
“Once we can travel, I would love to do heaps of trips around Australia and overseas too.
“I mean, with that much money, what can’t I do?!”
