In case you missed it: Three winners become Set for Life in a single draw
They say good things come in threes and that was certainly the case this week when a trio of winners scored division one in Monday night’s Set for Life draw. They’ll each take home $20,000 every month for the next twenty years!
Catch up on their stories and other winning highlights below:
“This feels like a dream!”: Thomastown woman blown away by Set for Life win
Running on pure excitement and very little sleep, a Thomastown woman was the first to discover her life-changing win.
“I was circling my numbers, and then I realised I had circled them all,” she told us.
“I screamed ‘Oh my god! I’ve won!’”
As we were talking the winning woman through the process to claim her $4.8 million annuity prize, she admitted she was already one step ahead of us.
“You know, I have a stash of your prize claim forms right beside my bed because I always had a feeling I was going to win division one! Now it’s happened, it feels insane.”
Liverpool dad left speechless by Set for Life win
Our second Set for Life winner was a Liverpool man who struggled to put a sentence together when we confirmed the exciting news.
“I don’t need to work anymore,” he laughed eventually.
“I can’t say how I feel. I can’t put it into words.”
The generous dad revealed his prize would do big things for his big family and he was looking forward to some future holidays and being mortgage-free.
Unusual numbers theory yields Melbourne man Set for Life win
A Melbourne pensioner completed our trifecta of Set for Life winners, revealing he checked his numbers both on The Lott app and in-store before he started to believe his win was real.
The regular player explained the unique way he chose his winning numbers.
“Last time the big Powerball jackpot was won I had a look at the numbers and thought to myself ‘those must be winning numbers’ and decided to play those from now on.
“When I saw the winning numbers in Set for Life – I didn’t believe it!”
His win means there are now a total of 69 Australians who are Set for Life.
Weekly dinner serves up a tasty $1.6 million TattsLotto win for seven Tassie friends
Among our other winners this week was a syndicate of Tassie friends who will be looking forward to an extra special weekly dinner after they scored $1.6 million in the weekend’s TattsLotto draw.
“We’ve been meeting for dinner once a week for the past five years, and every fortnight we put in $5 each and take turns buying the ticket,” the syndicate leader explained.
“It’s an amazing feeling to be able to share this win with them.
"This week’s dinner will be a bit different, that’s for sure! We’ll have to buy a bottle of champagne to celebrate!”
