A Jamestown woman is ditching work for the day, popping a bottle of champagne, and calling all her loved ones to reveal she’d won $1.25 million in the weekend’s Saturday X Lotto draw.

The winning woman held one of 16 division one winning entries in Saturday X Lotto draw 4243, drawn Saturday 19 March 2022. Each division one winning entry scored $1.25 million.

Confirming her win with us this morning, the overwhelmed woman recalled the moment she made the life-changing discovery.

“I only just found out this morning. I went down to the newsagency, and the staff there told me then,” the winner explained.

“I was so overwhelmed by it all. It was just total disbelief.

“I could barely say anything after they told me! It’s just such a big shock.

“This feels like the impossible just happened. It’s amazing!

“I’m not going to go to work today. I’m just going to buy some lovely champagne, and then I’ll call a few people to let them know this great news.

“My husband is going to be so surprised by this. We’re millionaires!

“The first thing we will do is pay off our mortgage. We might think of getting a new car, and maybe we’ll go on a holiday or two.

“I’m just so blown away. It’s the best surprise to receive on a Monday!”

The South Australian purchased her winning entry at Jamestown Newsagency, 28-30 Ayr Street, Jamestown.

Jamestown Newsagency manager Linda Batten said her entire team was celebrating the exciting milestone.

“I received the news we’d sold a division one winning entry first thing on Sunday morning. Dreams do come true,” Linda said.

“We were so excited for the winner! Congratulations to them. We hope it makes a positive difference to her life.

“We’ve been lottery agents since 1992, and this is the first division one winning entry we’ve ever sold. We’ve sold some major prize winning Instant Scratch-Its prizes, but this is our first division one lottery win, so it’s a big moment.

“It’s fantastic to help make someone’s dreams come true.

“I can’t wait to continue to share this news with our customers. Our customers are just as excited about this win as we are. It creates so much fun and excitement!

“We had another customer discover a $5,000 win last week, so we feel like we’re on a lucky streak!

“We’re just waiting for our next big win!”
