Australian lottery millionaires to change their lives thanks to big win
A couple from New South Wales are set to change their lives completely after becoming lottery millionaires. They won AU$1 million and are now quitting their jobs to travel the world.
The Australian couple, from Maitland, New South Wales, won AU$1 million last month. Their prize came thanks to the Monday & Wednesday Lotto when their ticket won a division one prize.
Their daughter discovered the lucky win
The lottery millionaires took home a huge AU$1 million. They told lottery officials that they’ve been playing the same numbers for 40 years, so long that even their daughter knows them from memory.
“Our daughter came over last night and said to us ‘I think you’ve won the lottery’,” the wife explained. She’d seen them on the internet and heard about a local winner.
“We checked the numbers in the paper and on the internet and there they were, our numbers were right there!” The lucky winner said that their good fortune has certainly left her feeling a million dollars.
No more work for these lucky lottery millionaires
To celebrate their Monday & Wednesday Lotto win, the couple both called in sick to work. “We’ll both be putting our notice in straight away. It’s going to feel really good to write our resignation letters.”
The couple will now retire years before they expected. They’ll use their newfound fortune to spend more time with their children and grandchildren.
“We also want to travel and see different places,” the winner continued. Despite all their plans, they’re still going to take some time to get used to their millions. “My stomach is just full of butterflies!” the lottery millionaire said. “It’s just unbelievable!”
The lucky couple, who plan to stay anonymous, purchased their lucky ticket from Greenhills Newsagency, East Maitland.
