WHO said Friday the 13th was bad luck?

Definitely not this retired Queensland couple who will pocket $20,000 a month for the next two decades after winning first prize in the Set For Life draw last Friday.

The winning woman, who wished to remain anonymous, was in a state of shock after receiving the news from a Golden Casket official this morning.

“Oh my goodness, oh my goodness, I don’t believe it. Twenty years — phenomenal.

“Wow, oh my gosh! This is amazing, it is outrageous actually — I am going to be in shock for a very long time.

“When you first called, my husband and I thought we had won something reasonable, but it never occurred to us that it was the big prize, so thank you so much.

“Turns out Friday the 13th isn’t so bad after all. Friday the 13th will be party time from now on.”

The pair from the Sunshine Coast. expressed the timing couldn’t have been better.

“I was just trying to figure out my super and now I don’t have to,” she said.

“We are retired, but we were at a crossroads trying to figure out what to do. We have been hunting for jobs and now we can finally give up.”

The winning couple plan to spoil their family and enjoy their retirement.

“The first thing we will do is help out the family, then we will travel, then renovate the house. After that, god knows what we will do,” she said.

The pair hope to travel around Australia and go overseas, admitting they have never been able to do that.

“We can finally do all those things we have always wanted to do.”

The winning ticket was bought at Nextra Chancellor Park at Sippy Downs and assistant manager Karen Daymond said the outlet was ecstatic to have sold the 40th Set For Life first prize winning entry.

“It is great to know we have changed someone’s life. We are so happy for them,” she said.

“We have sold two division one tickets before, so we were ready to sell another big prize.

“We have been telling all of our customers, printed some signs and put some balloons up.

“We are glad it is a local customer and will definitely be celebrating.”

In May last year, another Queensland woman was also shocked to find out she had won $17,000. But then two days later, she won again — making her $2.77 million richer.
