A Port Pirie couple is feeling on top of the world after winning $1 million from this weeks Monday and Wednesdays X Lotto draw.

The first thing the couple wants to do with their money is dust off their passports and travel the world once the borders open back up.

"I'm still in shock!" the winning woman said when speaking to an official from The Lott.

"Normally, I buy my tickets on Thursday and then check them the following Thursday. It was a very big surprise when I checked this ticket yesterday.

"It's unbelievable especially in a little town like Port Pirie.

"We didn't sleep very much last night. We kept thinking, is it real?"

After sharing the news to their family of the win, the husband immediately started writing a list of all the things they wanted to do with the money.

"A holiday! We want to go around the world. We've been halfway already, but we want to finish it off before we're too old to do it," she said.

"We also want to help the kids and grandkids."

The winning 4-game QuickPick entry was purchased at Ellen Centre Newsagency, Shop 8, 170 Ellen Street, Port Pirie.

Ellen Centre Newsagency manager Tracy Sandow said she was ecstatic one of her customers scored division one.

"It's our third division one win, but our first overnight millionaire," she said.

"It's the talk of the town. Everyone was bringing their tickets in yesterday, hoping it was them.

"We're very happy we've helped someone become a millionaire in Port Pirie and happy it's a lovely regular customer. We wish them all the very best with their prize."

The winning numbers in Monday & Wednesday X Lotto draw 4115 on Wednesday 22 September 2021 were 44, 29, 41, 5, 38 and 3, while the supplementary numbers were 36 and 24.
