Night-filler Lotto mil­lion­aire

Weekend Courier - - Front Page -

A NIGHT-FILL worker from Waikiki is WA’s lat­est Lotto mil­lion­aire, com­ing for­ward to claim $1 mil­lion in Di­vi­sion One prize money from last week­end’s Saturday Lotto draw.

The win­ning ticket was pur­chased at Rockingham Cen­tral Lottery Cen­tre and was the 53rd Di­vi­sion One win for WA this year.

The 47-year-old woman said she would still be re­turn­ing to work de­spite be­com­ing a mil­lion­aire overnight.

“I re­ally en­joy my job so I’ll be head­ing to Woolies tonight for my usual shift,” the woman said.

“Now that our bank ac­count will be look­ing a bit health­ier I might see if I can change a cou­ple of shifts – the mid­night fin­ishes can get a bit tir­ing,” she said.

The woman’s hus­band said the cou­ple had been ‘all over the shop’ since learn­ing of their win.

“We haven’t re­ally slept or eaten much in the past 24 hours,” he said.

“We shop daily at Rockingham City but after we checked our ticket and found out that we’d won a mil­lion bucks, I couldn’t re­mem­ber the way out of the car park.

“We must’ve driven around in cir­cles for about 10 min­utes.”
