& # 39; Biggest stuff in the world & # 39 ;: two Australian partners become millionaires after accidentally purchasing identical winning lottery tickets
- The two colleagues from Goolwa have been buying lottery tickets for years
- Both dropped $ 1.67 million after winning the prize on Saturday's X Lotto draw
- The two have now said that they are planning to quit their jobs and to retire together
Two friends from Australia have & # 39; the best things in the world & # 39; after they accidentally bought identical lottery tickets that eventually won.
Colleagues from Goolwa, south of Adelaide, had been taking part in the lottery for years, but both had forgotten whose start it was and both ended up buying a ticket with the same numbers.
They both earned $ 1.67 million after winning the division one prize on Saturday's X Lotto draw.
The couple said they are planning to quit their job and retire together. Their winning numbers – which they chose every week – were 12, 21, 10, 2, 1 and 42
& # 39; My partner thought it was his turn last week, but it was actually mine and I already had it to & # 39 ;, one of the anonymous winners said 9 news.
& # 39; It is incredible that the week that we both end with a ticket, due to an error, is the week in which our numbers are drawn.
& # 39; And if you knew the two of us, the most likely scenario is that the week our numbers are taken out of the barrel is the week in which we both forget to buy a ticket. & # 39;
The couple said they are planning to quit their job and retire together. Their winning numbers – which they chose every week – were 12, 21, 10, 2, 1 and 42.
The other winner said: & # 39; This is the best stuff in the world. & # 39;
& # 39; It was a good week to make a mistake, wasn't it? My friend called me at the crack of the day and said: & # 39; I have news for you. & # 39;
& # 39; Of course I thought he lied when he said we had won Division One. Then I told him & # 39; well, I have even better news for you. I also set up the Lotto, thinking it was my week.
& # 39; We were both stunned to be honest with you. It is absolutely surreal. & # 39;
On Saturday 12 winners took the division home with one prize.
Meanwhile, another South Australian lottery player may not realize that they are a new millionaire after Wednesday's X Lotto draw.
A customer at Munno Para Newsagency near Adelaide bought the winning ticket, but did not register it.
