$how me the money
A Canberra couple have had a holiday they’ll never forget, picking up a division one winning lottery ticket on their travels throughout Far North Queensland.
The pair held one of the 11 division one winning entries nationally in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 4105, drawn Saturday 21 November 2020. Each entry takes home a division one prize of $549,405.38.
Confirming the news with an official from The Lott this morning, the couple admitted they were still in shock 24 hours after making the exciting discovery.
“Thank you,” the winning woman gushed. “We’re thrilled!
“We checked the ticket yesterday. My husband was making a cup of tea and I thought I’d better check it.
“I was sitting on the bed; thank goodness because it popped up on my screen that we’d won division one!
“I was yelling expletive after expletive after expletive.
“We thought there was no way it was right! My husband double-checked it on his phone as well. “We still can’t believe it. What a holiday!”
When asked how they planned to enjoy their division one fortune, the pair said an early retirement was on the cards.
“It’s going to make our lives so much easier,” they explained.
“We will pay off the mortgage and give some to our children to help them get ahead. “We both still work a little bit, but maybe we can retire now!”
The life-changing ticket was purchased at Mt Sheridan Newspower, based in the Mount Sheridan Plaza.
Mt Sheridan Newspower co-owner Tash Grace said the outlet was celebrating the exciting news. “What a great win just before Christmas and it is so exciting for us as new owners!” she exclaimed. “We’ve been telling everyone that we’ve sold a division one winning entry and our customers are so happy for us.
“We wish our winners all the very best with their prize and hope it brings fantastic changes to their lives!”
