Mega Monthly 50/50 Winner Purchased Tickets to Turn Her Luck Around



The winner of September's Mega Monthly 50/50 Draw purchased her tickets for an unconventional reason.

Magda S, who didn't want her full name disclosed, took home a cheque worth $49,125.

She purchased the tickets in September in a bid to turn her luck around. For the second time, her family home had recently been struck by lightning, so she decided instead of purchasing a lottery ticket with the unlikely odds of winning, she opted to purchase Mega Monthly 50/50 tickets saying, "at least it will be a donation to the hospital."

Needless to say, she was very excited to win September's jackpot.

She plans to use the money to pay for her upcoming wedding and to share some of it with her parents.
