“I cannot believe this is happening. What a wonderful phone call to get of a morning!” the man exclaimed realising that news of his $1 million division one Monday Lotto win was genuine.
The couple said that they can look forward to a comfortable future thanks to the win.
“This has made the rest of our lives,” the Southern Highlands woman exclaimed after hearing the good news from her husband.
