In case you missed it: Lottery winners win division one twice and Set for Life sneaks up to 100th winner
Talk about a double delight! Lotto loot has struck not once but twice for one winner this week and we near even closer to crowning our 100th Set for Life division one winner.
Check it out in this week’s winning highlights.
Nine Saturday Lotto winners on cloud nine!
A group of nine Saturday Lotto winners have kickstarted their week with their heads in the clouds after each scoring a dreamy division one prize of $606,000!
While some planned to use their heavenly division one prize to pay off their bills or purchase a new set of wheels, a Mitchell Park couple is planning an around-the-world odyssey.
“It was very surreal seeing my division one win on Saturday night. Dreams really do come true! We had about four hours sleep on Saturday night. It was the most restless night of our lives,” the winner shared.
“We’ve both been working so hard our entire lives. So, we will use the money to have some fun during our retirement. Although it is a bit harder to travel, we’ve always dreamed of doing it!”
Shakes, tears, and laughter for Cranbourne East man
For a self-proclaimed Cranbourne East “battler” who’s been working hard his entire life, a Set for Life division one win means he can put his feet up and immediately retire from work.
The Melburnian can now look forward to monthly installments of $20,000 a month for the next 20 years!
“Woo-hoo! This is the best phone call I’ve ever received. This is fantastic. I can’t stop shaking. This is so great. I’m incredibly delighted. You’re making me cry so much! I’m a blubbering mess,” he said.
“I’ve really struggled so much these past few years. I’ve been working hard to set myself up for the future. I’ve even been salary sacrificing for years trying to set myself up for retirement.”
This is Set for Life’s 97th division one winner since the game began.
Lottery lightning strikes twice for Port Macquarie man
A Port Macquarie man is ready to see his bank account blossom not only once but twice after his single ticket in Monday & Wednesday Lotto had two games with an identical set of numbers.
The division one prize in Monday & Wednesday Lotto was $800,000 - but as the New South Wales winner won division one twice, he takes home $1.6 million!
“I’m shaking! I put the same numbers on both lines on purpose. Usually, it just means I might win $40 instead of $20. I never thought I’d win $800,000 and then see it double!” he gasped.
“This just means so much to me and my family. We’ll look at buying a new family car, a new home for us to live in and make sure our family is looked after.”
Loaf of bread bakes into a Monday & Wednesday million-dollar win!
A Sunshine Coast winner picking up a loaf of bread has received the surprise of a lifetime when he checked his Monday & Wednesday Lotto entry only to discover he’s now a newly-minted millionaire.
“Jesus, I’m shaking! I can’t believe it. I went to grab a loaf of bread and a newspaper at the local corner store, and I decided to check my entry from last night. I need to sit down; I’m going to fall over,” he laughed.
“I’ll have to tell my wife straight after our phone call, she won’t believe me. I might even retire today; I think this is the perfect time! We will definitely celebrate with some beers!”
We can’t wait for the next wave of lottery stories! Have a winning week!
