“I struggled to park my car, which took me a few minutes, then I walked into the pub and said hello to the team members before I put my Keno numbers on.
“There wasn’t even a moment to sit down because I turned around and watched my numbers appear one by one! It was the first game on my ticket!
“My legs immediately went to jelly, someone got me a chair, and I just sat down in a daze.
“I thought, ‘I only won a few weeks ago, this can’t be happening again!’
Now she can’t wait to spread the joy around her family.
“I can’t wait to spoil my children, that is one of my greatest joys in life,” she said.
“I’ll also put some away for the future and I’m considering buying a new car for myself. Why not right?
“Thanks so much for the call – this has made my day.”
