Taree couple celebrate 58 years of marriage with a surprise win!

Friday 19 December 2014 - A retired Taree couple were too busy celebrating their 58th wedding anniversary to take a phone call from NSW Lotteries informing them they’d won $1,000 in the Players Club Monthly 2nd Chance Draw.

“We went away for the weekend and I forgot to take phone charger! When I got home, charged my phone and checked my messages I couldn’t believe what I was hearing,” the delighted winning husband said.

“It was the perfect end to a wonderful few days away with my beautiful wife.”

The couple are planning to share their winnings with their children and grandchildren for Christmas.

“It’s such great timing. We were stretching it a bit tight with our Christmas shopping, but now we can afford to spoil our family like we’ve always wanted to,” he said.

“It will be very Merry Christmas indeed!”

The Monthly 2nd Chance Draw gives one lucky Players Club member $1,000 each month simply for purchasing NSW Lotteries products using their card and entering their details at www.nswlotteries.com.

NSW Lotteries spokesperson Elissa Lewis says the Monthly 2nd Chance Draws are not the only benefits of a Players Club membership.

“Not only do customers have the opportunity to win $1,000 every month just for purchasing lotto products with their Players Club card, but they also have the peace of mind that they’ll never miss out on their prize money,” Ms Lewis said.

“Another important benefit is that if your numbers do come up we can contact you directly the next business day with the life changing news of a first division win!”
