Million-dollar discovery leaves Lismore winner buzzing and shaking
A Lismore man has set the scene for an incredible future after discovering his Monday and Wednesday Lotto windfall. The player told us he has used the same numbers for years, and in a dramatic twist, they finally delivered him a $1 million prize.
“I was just checking my ticket in the car, and I got a feeling I might have won this. Then I just marked all the numbers off,” he said.
“It’s a shock to the system, I can tell you. My knees are shaking.
“I’ll still keep working, but this will set my family up for the future.”
Sleepless night for Yamba man
A man from Yamba told us he could barely sleep this week, and it wasn’t because he watched too many scary movies. The New South Wales player was kept wide awake because of his breathtaking $25,000 top-winning Instant Scratch Its win!
“It was actually a birthday present from my grandparents, and at first I thought, ‘oh, this will be a bit of fun’,” the winning man told us.
“Then, as I scratched away at the ticket, my mouth just hit the floor.
“In all honesty, I haven’t really slept properly the last few nights. My mind has been racing!
“I’ll definitely have some fun with it, but I’ll put most of it away for the future.”
That’s a wrap for this week. Happy playing!
