If there's one thing we've learned this week, it's that even when you win the lottery, you still have to decide what to have for dinner. Recently we spoke to a number of thrilled Australians who had worked up quite the appetite after all the excitement of scoring a lottery winfull. However, they had no plans to get out the pots and pans in their own kitchens. Instead opting to celebrate their sweet winning news with a delicious takeaway food. One of my favorite reactions was from a Campsie man who won the guaranteed $100,000 first prize in a lucky lottery Super jackpot draw. The winning man was ecstatic at the revelation and couldn't wait to tell his wife the good news. When we asked him how he was going to celebrate, he revealed they were going to do something a bit out of the ordinary and go to "Maccas" for a dinner. He told us he never usually eats it, but knowing that his wife loves it, he figured why not?
Similarly, a Gold Coast woman who also won a lucky lottery's first prize this week shared that she'd be celebrating hew win with a special dinner. She discovered the winning news while she was still at work and admitted she'd have trouble concentrating for the rest of the day. But once she was at home, she could truly celebrate by pouring a glass of wine and ordering her favorite takeaway, if you are hungry for a win, well, we are always serving out more chances to excite and delight Aussies across the country. Hopefully we can deliver some delicious winning news to you soon
