Lotto smooths over pen­sion

Pinjarra Murray Times - - NEWS -

A MAR­RIED cou­ple from Green­fields claimed Thurs­day night’s $1 mil­lion Di­vi­sion 1 prize. The cou­ple, in their 70s, said the sleep­less night was all worth it once they set­tled into the Win­ners Room couch. The stunned wife said she had to wipe her tears of joy off the winning ticket as she re­alised they had struck riches by cir­cling all six winning num­bers. “We def­i­nitely handed the ticket back and forth to one an­other a few times be­fore de­cid­ing we weren’t see­ing things,” she said. “We’ll be liv­ing the rest of our lives very hap­pily and with a big smile on our faces.” On the cou­ple’s bucket list was visit­ing rel­a­tives over­seas, treat­ing their kids and splurg­ing on some home ren­o­va­tions. “We won’t have to wait for the pen­sion every fort­night,” the hus­band said. “We’re go­ing to buy brand spank­ing new items – new car, bed, even new gut­ters – why not? “We’ll be giv­ing the kids a fair chunk too.” “I hope they don’t ex­pect any­thing more for Christ­mas.”
