Covering your day-to-day expenses sometimes gets so overwhelming it’s difficult to save up for little things that make life much more enjoyable. One family from Branxton experienced this on their own skin since they weren’t able to go on a holiday for several decades – but that’s about to change thanks to a $1.000.000 lottery prize.
The members of the fortunate family, all of whom decided to stay anonymous, matched the main winning numbers 10, 11, 20, 24, 27 and 36 in Australia’s Lotto draw on November 22nd with a ticket they purchased at the Branxton Newsagency. It didn’t take them long to find out they became $1.000.000 richer – the lucky dad checked their numbers shortly after the draw took place, after discovering the winning ticket was sold in their area.
“I saw something on Facebook about a win in Branxton, but it wasn’t until last night that I saw it. I’m just trying to keep myself composed. I’m shaking a bit. I’ve got tears of joy!” said the fortunate man after receiving a call from lottery officials a few days ago.
The $1.000.000 prize will make a big difference in the lives of these hard-working people, who usually only had enough money to cover their living expenses. Now they’ll finally be able to treat themselves by going on a first family vacation in a long, long time.
“It’ll just make life a lot easier. We’ve never had a real holiday. Now it’s time – maybe a trip around Australia,” said the patron of the family.
