Couple stunned by lucky lotteries win

Posted: 9am 17 Jul 2020

A Caboolture couple has admitted winning the latest Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw left them unable to cook dinner or sleep.

They took the top prize of $200,000 in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot, drawn on Monday, after buying their winning number online at thelott.com.

When an official from the Lott phoned the pair, who wish to remain anonymous, they began laughing and clapping as their win was confirmed.

“It’s just the most wonderful day!” says the winning woman. “I can’t believe it! We are stunned. We are so glad to take your call. It’s so surreal.”

Too excited to cook

“You buy a ticket, but you always think it’s going to be someone else. It’s incredible. We ordered some pizzas last night, because we were so excited we couldn’t even cook. We will do something a bit more exciting this weekend with our family to celebrate.”

The couple said they had a restless night, worried they would wake up from a dream.

“We couldn’t sleep at all last night,” the winning woman explained.

“Every time I dozed off, I would wake up to check my online the Lott account. My husband was the same. By about four in the morning, we gave up trying to sleep.

“We will do some small renovations, give some to our kids, and keep some for a rainy day. We have also been dreaming of going to Europe for years. Obviously, we can’t right now, but when we can travel again, we would love to do that.”
