Playing the Same Numbers for 36 years Finally Pays out

1 min read

A couple from a small town in northern Victoria have won $10 million in last weekend’s Saturday Lotto. The couple, who wish to remain anonymous, have been struggling for years now with day-to-day living expenses and say that the win will be “life-changing”.

The ecstatic couple say that they will use the money to secure their financial future, but before they get to that, they plan on using some of their winnings to help out their friends and family.

The winning ticket was bought from K and K Toys in Kyabram who say that their store had been particularly busy the morning after the Saturday Lotto draw with locals bringing their tickets in with the hope that they were the mystery winner.

“A few people have been joking this morning that they’ll be looking out for someone driving a new car,” owner Kevin Bell said.

The numbers that made the struggling couple instant millionaires in the August 27 Saturday Lotto draw were; 8, 16, 4, 32, 33 and 34 with the supplementary numbers; 29 and 26.
