When Auckland resident, Mrs S*, bought her usual $20 worth of RSL tickets, she had a lucky feeling.

While she thought she would win the Golden Treasure, she actually got in quicker than that and won the art union draw before it.

When General Manager, Mr George Mialkowski made the winning phone call to tell her she had won the $1.49 million waterfront prize home, all she could say was, “My goodness! You’re joking!”

Once the initial shock of the win sank in, the happy New Zealander shouted to her husband, “Aaaggghhh. We’ve just won a house in Australia!”

A regular supporter of the RSl Art Union, Mrs S’s* $20 Book of Tickets also means she gets a bonus $40,000 Gold Bullion.

Both in their sixties, Mrs S* and her husband, as well as their two daughers and grandchildren are all excited about the win. It is a great way to enter your retirement years.

Mrs S*, who is already retired, has been trying to get her husband to retire for the last 4 years or so – and this windfall should help! In fact, it may not take much convincing at all… when the “winning” phone call was amost over, he called out in the background, “When can I move in?”
