Lotto Australia posted a video on Friday showing the two Australian couples who won a record-breaking $3.3 billion US lotto in the US after winning a jackpot of $20 million.
The video showed the couple, who have been dating since they were 15 years old, celebrating after their victory at a New Jersey casino, with their family and friends cheering.
The couple have won $3 billion jackpots in their marriage, but were not the only winners of the jackpot, with $2.3 million of the $3 million going to their children, and the rest going to the winners of their favourite games, such as tennis and bingo.
Lotto Australia CEO Peter McManus said the couple had been “blown away” by their win, and thanked the casino for its support.
“I think it’s very important to remember, in this day and age, it’s not all about winning, it can be about what you’re able to contribute to the community,” Mr McManuses said.
“Lotto’s very generous with their money and it goes into a range of programs for our community.”
