While she was aware of the search for the mystery lottery winner she was totally unaware of her luck. The news was on radio and TV but she did not think much about it and therefore, delayed checking her ticket numbers. In fact, she was ready to buy new lottery tickets from the newsagency without checking the old ones. It was while buying the new tickets only that she thought of checking the ones she already had.
The newsagency told her that she could be one of the Lotto winners that the Australian lottery officials were looking for. At this point, she said a million things crossed her mind and it was a very overwhelming feeling.
The winning mum is very excited now that her bank account is going to get $1.4 million heavier. Life is going to change for the better for her family and she is very excited about it.
There’s a house she’s been thinking of purchasing for a very long time, now with this new fortune, she can finally buy it. She further shared that with her newly acquired wealth she can help her children and parents. She also plans to buy herself a car that she has had her eyes on for a while.
It was the Thurgoona Plaza Newsagency, Shop 9 located at 10 Shuter Avenue that sold the winning ticket. The Lott reached out to the newsagency and the employee there while showing her excitement congratulated the winner on behalf of the newsagency.
