That’s exactly what it did for one lucky Gatton couple. They picked up $3 million in last night Powerball Draw.
The couple’s registered entry was the only division one winning entry in Australia for Powerball draw 1108 on Thursday night, August 10th.
A Golden Casket official broke the dream-come-true news to the couple first thing this morning, prompting the household to erupt into instantaneous celebrations.
“Come off it! Come off it! No! No! Are you kidding me? I don’t know what to say!” the winning woman exclaimed.
“I can’t believe this! My goodness! Oh my goodness! Oh dear me! Oh my god!
“Sweetheart, darling, I love you! I thought it was a hoax. I wasn’t even going to answer my phone. I don’t know what to say. I’m shaking! I’m shaking!
“I don’t know whether I feel sick. I have a hot and cold feeling running through my body. Oh my goodness!
The happy winners plan to set themselves up for a happy and worry-free retirement and share the prize with their family. However, they have no plans to stop playing Powerball:
“I buy the same entry every week. The only one I do is Powerball! I won’t stop playing because I enjoy my Powerball.”
The couple, who wish to remain anonymous, purchased their 18-game QuickPick entry at Gatton Plaza Newsagency, Shop 7-8, Gatton Plaza, Spencer Street, Gatton.
