A Bundaberg woman says she nearly fainted when she and her husband discovered they were millionaires from last night’s Gold Lotto draw.
The couple held one of the two division one winning entries in the Gold Lotto draw 4041, drawn Wednesday, 6 January 2021. Each division one entry won $1 million.
When an official from The Lott contacted the winning couple this morning, they admitted they’d barely slept a wink since their million-dollar discovery last night.
“I couldn’t sleep last night at all,” the winning woman laughed.
“I checked the ticket just before bed and I couldn’t believe it. I was about to faint!
“We’ve been playing for years using our favourite numbers, though those numbers have changed over that time.”
“We’d always hoped this would happen, but with time that hope was dwindling. We’re over the moon,” her husband added.
“We’re both pretty grounded. We just need to get rid of the mortgage – that’s what’s hanging over us. This gives us an enormous sense of relief and we’ll enjoy putting some aside to help our family.”
While now the region’s newest millionaires, the couple shared they would still be turning up to work today.
“Nothing will change that much for us at the moment. We still have our work and family to look after,” the woman said.
“But we’ll remember this day forever!”
The winners, who wish to remain anonymous, purchased their marked System 7 entry online at thelott.com – Australia’s official lotteries.
The other million-dollar winner was from Gladstone.
