A couple of pensioners from Western Australia spent their last $11 on a Monday Lotto ticket, which turned out to be worth $1 million.

We recently told you about another Western Australian Lotto winner who shed tears of joy after his win, and the pensioners, who are from Port Kennedy, explained to Lotto officials that they were struggling to live on their pensions, and took a risk when they spent the last of their change on the Monday Lotto tickets. “I was surprised my hubby let me use our last bit of change to buy the ticket but it was a double win day,” said the wife, explaining that “when you’re living pension to pension it isn’t easy.” An Irish Lotto winner had only 60 cents in her bank when she won €100,000.

In fact, the Monday Lotto ticket purchase came after the woman had a dream in which she won the Lotto, and decided to try her luck. The husband and wife are both in their 60s, and they were planning to sell the home in which they have lived for many years because they couldn’t afford their mortgage payments on their pensions. Just yesterday we told you about a Maryland family who won big on a lottery scratch card just when they really needed it.

Fortunately, they are now able to change those plans, and the wife told Oz Lotto officials that she phoned her husband to tell him about their big win after she learned that their Monday Lotto ticket was a winner. She first told him that they’d won thousands, before revealing that they’d actually won the country’s only first division prize on the Monday Lotto draw when he returned home. A pair of pensioners from northern England were delighted to be able to treat their families recently when they won on the People’s Postcode Lottery.

“I didn’t know what to do,” she explained. “I wanted to tell my husband straight away but I was scared the shock of it would give him a heart attack.” However, her husband said that despite being shocked by the Monday Lotto win, he was delighted that their financial worries would finally be over. “When I rechecked the numbers I immediately realised we could afford our next mortgage payment.” A recent Lotto winning couple from Canada were finally able to pay off their mortgage after winning $1 million on the Lotto Max.

George Salib, owner of the store where the winning Monday Lotto ticket was purchased, told lottery officials that he was thrilled for his customers. “It couldn’t have gone to a more deserving couple,” he said.
