Couple claim million dollar lotto win


A Bundaberg woman admits she nearly fainted when she and her husband discovered they were millionaires.

The couple held one of the two division one winning entries in last night's Gold Lotto draw, claiming $1 million.

When an official from The Lott contacted the winning couple this morning, they admitted they’d barely slept a wink since their million-dollar discovery last night.

“I couldn’t sleep last night at all,” the winning woman laughed.

“I checked the ticket just before bed and I couldn’t believe it. I was about to faint!"

The happy couple say they looked forward to saying goodbye to their mortgage and setting their young family up for the future.

Despite becoming the region's newest millionaires, the couple say they would still be turning up to work today.

“Nothing will change that much for us at the moment. We still have our work and family to look after,” the woman said.

“But we’ll remember this day forever.”

The winners, who wish to remain anonymous, purchased their marked System 7 entry online.
