“The wait is over!”: $1.5 million X Lotto win music to Adelaide couple’s ears
An Adelaide couple were left “flabbergasted” this morning when their home renovations were interrupted by the incredible news that they had won $1.5 million in Saturday’s X Lotto draw.
The winning duo held one of the four division one winning entries in Saturday X Lotto draw 4239, drawn Saturday 5 March 2022. Each division one winning entry scored $1,533,637.09.
After receiving the news from our team, the couple confessed they had been playing X Lotto for decades and had been eagerly anticipating a big win.
“They say good things come to those who wait! Jeez! Oh, my goodness, we’ve been waiting a long time,” the winning wife said.
“Thank you so much! I really need to sit down in a quiet spot but that’s a bit hard with the builders in the background making so much noise. We’re in a bit of a pickle.
“I’m crying. It’s beautiful news. Just so wonderful!
“We are just flabbergasted at this.”
The couple admitted they’d require some time to comprehend their enormous win before deciding exactly what to do with the prize, but shared finishing their home renovations and treating their family were at the top of the list.
“The renovations are going to be our celebration, once they’re complete,” she said.
“We’ve got five adult children, so we’ll be able to help them out now, which is fantastic!
“We will have to let them know today. They won’t believe it!”
The couple’s winning marked 14-game entry was purchased at Market Plaza Chemmart, Shop 9, 61 Grote St, Adelaide.
The Market Plaza Chemmart team said they were over the moon to sell a division one winning ticket and wished their winners the best of luck for the future.
