1 min read
Can you imagine going to work in the morning, and then returning home a millionaire? This fairytale has come true for Mater Prize Home winner Tina from WA.
Tina was in shock when she received a call announcing that they had won a million-dollar home at Palm Cove, Tropical North Queensland in Mater Prize Home Lottery 286.
When she sent a rushed text message to Augie, her husband, her excitement got the better of her words. Augie first thought that Tina won a prize for cleaning a house, as she worked as a cleaner at the time. He was very confused, and it wasn’t until later that Tina called and cleared up the story. They were both excited beyond words and felt numb for a while.
“This win is definitely life-changing! Tina had a really tough job so now she has retired. I can see how much happier she is,” Augie shared.
Unlike his wife, Augie enjoys his job as a train driver. Though he is 76 years old, he isn’t planning on retiring just yet.
Tina and Augie have been supporting Mater Foundation Queensland for many years. They’ve put aside a small amount of money monthly to buy tickets in Mater Prize Home lottery, which helps fund cancer research. Tina never thought she would actually become a Mater Prize Home winner one day!
“We wanted to pick charities that we felt were worthwhile supporting and could do the most for the community and in our opinion, Mater is one of these.”
Winning a Mater Prize Home lottery was definitely a surreal experience for the couple. They started their days as normal, getting up, showering, going to work and then by the time they got home the same day, they were millionaires!
