Thursday 8 March 2012 - A Terrigal woman who received a phone call from NSW Lotteries officials informing her of her $1 million division one Wednesday Lotto win will celebrate her good fortune with new dress and a meal at an expensive restaurant.
The 85 year-old pensioner’s suspicion turned to joy earlier today when she realised the phone call she received from NSW Lotteries was good news.
The winner said that she was going to go into town later today to buy a dress she has had her eye on.
“You’re not pulling my leg are you? You have made me so happy, this is the most beautiful news,” the 85 year-old winner said.
“I’m an old lady and it’s about time I had some money to spend and spend it I will. I’ll keep the economy going! In fact I saw a lovely dress in town and I’m going to buy it today,” the winner laughed.
The new millionairess said that she will celebrate her win with her family.
“Of course I’ll celebrate, I’ll bring my family to one of the best restaurants and we will eat the best food. I’ll also use the money to help my family,” the generous winner added.
Terrigal’s winner scored the Wednesday Lotto $1 million division one prize with a four game ticket using the same numbers she has used for more than twenty years.
The winning ticket was purchased from Supanews Market Newsagency at Erina Fair, Terrigal Drive, Terrigal and cost just $4.50.
Two winners won $1 million each in last night’s Wednesday Lotto draw. Along with the winning ticket sold in Terrigal a winning ticket was also sold in Western Australia.
The winning numbers in Wednesday Lotto draw 3119 were 10, 41, 38, 43, 4 and 30 with the supplementary 36 and 23.
