A supermarket worker from Perth is slowly coming to terms with becoming a millionaire after winning a seven-figure Saturday Lotto prize. However, despite landing the $1 million reward, the lucky winner has refused to give up her job as a shelf stacker.
Winning $1 Million on Saturday Lotto
The Woolworths employee, who has opted to remain anonymous, purchased her winning entry from Rockingham Central Lottery Centre prior to last Saturday’s draw. Needless to say, the 47-year-old was thrilled to find out that her ticket correctly matched the numbers 7, 13, 15, 18, 31 and 34, automatically making her one of four players to claim the life-changing sum of money.
The Waikiki resident wasted no time in collecting her prize, and was joined by her husband, who regaled reporters with how the couple had a sudden loss of memory after discovering that they had won: “We shop daily at Rockingham City but after we checked our ticket and found out that we’d won a million bucks, I couldn’t remember the way out of the car park,” he said. “We must’ve driven around in circles for about 10 minutes.”
To Work or Not to Work?
The women then stunned the press by revealing that she had no plans to leave her current role at the supermarket chain: “I really enjoy my job,” she said, before confirming to The West Australian that she would be starting her usual shift later that evening.
However, with such a sizeable sum of money in her possession, the quadragenarian did suggest that she may consider altering her working patterns in the future: “Now that our bank account will be looking a bit healthier I might see if I can change a couple of shifts — the midnight finishes can get a bit tiring.”
A Well Deserved Break
Having claim the $1 million prize, the husband and wife pair now plan to recuperate after having been ‘all over the shop’. The husband laughed: “We haven’t really slept or eaten much in the past 24 hours.” This latest win caps a memorable year for Western Australia, with 53 players having already secured a First Division prize.
