Grandson of the year! Dapto grandmother’s life changed forever with gifted $1.42 million Saturday Lotto ticket
A Dapto grandmother has a new favourite in the family after the Saturday Lotto ticket she received for Mother’s Day delivered her a $1.42 million prize.
The Wollongong woman admitted she was still recovering from the revelation she’s a newly minted millionaire despite discovering her newfound fortune on Sunday morning.
“Oh my god! Woo-hoo!” she chuckled.
“I’m still in shock. I found out yesterday morning when my daughter had come up.
“My grandson had sent it down to me for Mother’s Day.
“It’s definitely an unforgettable Mother’s Day!
“I’ve struggled to sleep last night, and probably won’t sleep at all tonight as well.
“Thank you so much.”
Her winning 24-game QuickPick was purchased at The Foundry Murwillumbah, 90-92 Murwillumbah Street, Murwillumbah.
The Foundry Murwillumbah owner Lee Kirkwood said it was a fantastic feeling to have sold a division one winning entry.
“To think that we have had a hand in potentially changing someone’s life is just indescribable. The news is spreading around the town and our community will be ecstatic,” he said.
“We will take time this week to continue to share the excitement with our great team and our customers as they come to check their tickets – big or small wins, we would love to share this moment with them.
“Since we opened as The Foundry in 2018, we have been hoping that we could share in the celebration with a fortunate winner.
“We cannot begin to comprehend what it would be like to win big. We’re so happy for our winner and we wish them all the best with the prize.”
