The wife was the one who discovered their victory one morning after the draw. She was on her way to work at the time, and finding out she’s about to collect $3.000.000 didn’t stop her from showing up for her shift.
“I was stunned, but I was also running late for work. I told my kids I better go because I’m going to be late. I’m not sure how I even got there safely with my winning ticket. My colleague triple checked it with me and was so excited for us,” said the lucky woman, who works as an educator.
She made the life-changing purchase at City News Kalgoorlie, the same store that sold a lottery ticket worth $25.000.000 back in 2006. Store owner Tania Parkes said they were super-excited after hearing that a local family won the jackpot. The $3.000.000 winner will use the money to secure the future of her family, pay off her debt and buy a little farm with her husband.
“We’re pretty down to earth, so this won’t change who we are! I really love my job and we’re both happy doing what we’re doing. I’m still a bit stunned and I know it won’t sink in until I see those zeroes in my bank account,” concluded the fortunate Kalgoorlie resident.
