Last Updated: Wednesday 5 June 2019, 12:43 pm
A crane driver from Townsville won the Set For Life jackpot on Monday night, becoming the sixth person to win the top prize in 2019. He lays claim to an annuity prize of $20,000 a month for the next 20 years.
The results for the Monday, 3rd June Set For Life draw were 9, 14, 23, 25, 26, 29, 33 and 34, with Bonus Numbers 12 and 27. The tradesman from Townsville, Queensland, matched all eight main numbers with a QuickSET entry, becoming the only player to win the Set For Life jackpot that evening. No one matched seven numbers and a Bonus Number, but eight players matched seven numbers – each winning $1,323.
The jackpot-winning ticket has a cumulative value of $4.8 million, and was bought at the Vincent Village Newsagency in Townsville. The shop’s proprietor, Robert Amisano, was asked to comment on selling the winning ticket. “I am extremely happy for our winner and wish him all the best with his prize. We can't wait to sell some more big winning tickets to our customers again soon!”
Set For Life Jackpot Winner “Overwhelmed”
The jackpot winner, who chose to remain anonymous in claiming his prize, said his win had “made [his] year.” He added: “I have been through some hard times, so this has absolutely come at the perfect time. I am very overwhelmed. I am very excited.” When asked what his next steps were, he was quick to answer. “I am going to kiss night shifts and overtime goodbye. I think I am absolutely going to retire soon too - I am going to spend a lot of time relaxing and fishing! It's one of my favourite things to do. Of course, I am going to help my family and fix up my house too.'
The Townsville tradesman is the sixth winner of the Set For Life jackpot in 2019 – and the third winner from Queensland. The fifth winner in 2019 was a Perth man, who said he may put purchasing “$20,000 worth of Lego” on his “silly list”.
