A couple from Australia who love to play the lottery, are celebrating a recent lottery win with Oz Lotto. They are now $40 million richer from the draw that happened on the 24th of May, Tuesday.
The couple is from Leongatha, Victoria. They bought their winning lottery ticket from the small town of South Gippsland. They have preferred to remain anonymous and so have not disclosed their full names.
They hit the $40 million jackpot by managing to match all seven winning numbers. The winning numbers were:
The couple waited until the Friday after the draw to check their results. After checking their results, they soon found out that they had just become $40 million richer with the international lottery game, Oz Lotto. For them, their big win hadn’t sunk in yet.
“It’s a big, big shock. It’s incredible!” exclaimed the delighted wife. “Someone advised us to check our ticket and it just so happened that it was us all along!” she added.
This story is similar to the couple from Canberra, Australia, who went for four days before finding out they had won $20 million with Oz Lotto. The couple has yet to decide how they want to spend their $40 million winnings. They have plans to donate at least $1 million to charity to help their Leongatha community as well as other causes.
“We’re not greedy. There will be more than enough to look after our family with,” said the happy winners. A past $40 million Lotto Max winner, Tom Crist, used a large portion of his winnings to help individuals and charities.
We recently spoke about how many lottery winners actually stay on their jobs after they win. There was another couple from Australia who won $40 million with Oz Lotto earlier this year and kept on working.
For this couple, though, they have had enough of the daily grind and want to slow things down. They definitely want to retire and said that they cannot wait any longer. “It’s amazing what you can do with more time to enjoy the things you love,” said the wife.
