After angering his wife by forgetting to get her lotto tickets one week, an Australian husband made up for it by buying two tickets the following week. And it’s doubly good that he did, because the numbers they’ve been playing for nearly thirty years finally came in and now they’re $2-million richer.
The New South Wales couple had the only two winning tickets for the March 13th Australian lotto drawing and took home $1-million Australian dollars (about $660-thousand US) for each of the tickets. “I can’t believe this has happened to us,” the husband says about their stroke of good fortune.
The couple plan on using their newfound wealth to help their family. “I can buy my daughter a house,” the wife says. “I can set up the children and grandchildren for the future.” And then she adds, “It’s going to change so many lives.” The money that’s left over after they’ve helped their family they plan to use to travel around Australia taking in parts of the country they’ve never seen.
