It really shows how humble a beginning this particular lottery-winning couple will experience, as the two winners of the recent $6.5 million NZ Lotto Prize took the bus to pick up to claim their prize. It is quirky start to their new life, but it is quite endearing, as many individuals are keen to show off their winnings as soon as they claim them.
It was nearly a week before the couple claimed their prize. After last week’s draw, several news reports popped up, questioning the whereabouts of the winners of this impressive jackpot. Now, the pair have finally come forward – but they have chosen to remain anonymous.
What they have revealed are there plans for their multi-million dollar prize. They want to buy a new home and take a trip long vacation in Europe. It seems that, right now, they are dreaming small and that the reality of their win has not quite hit the couple yet.
The couple had only start purchasing lottery tickets about a month ago, whereas most winners announce that they have been playing for years. It truly is encouraging for those of us who are waiting for our turn to hit the big NZ Lotto Jackpot.
