One lucky man from New Zealand is currently planning a Christmas surprise his partner will never forget. He intends to propose to her during the most festive day of the year and break the news of his incredible $1.000.000 victory.
This wasn’t a spur-of-the-moment decision for the lucky Aucklander. He was planning to pop the question in a while, but discovering his ticket was worth $1.000.000 gave him the push in the right direction.
The moment of his big discovery came on a regular Saturday night. He was watching Netflix, while his partner was asleep in the bedroom. The $1.000.000 winner had dozens of thoughts rushing through his mind after checking the ticket. He was very close to waking his future wife up and sharing the news, but decided to wait it out.
“I’ve been planning to propose to my partner for a while, so this win could not have come at a better time. I went to bed that night dreaming up ways to propose – little did she know that all my tossing and turning was because I’d just won $1.000.000 and was hatching a bit of a plan,” said the anonymous man.
First thing he decided to buy with his impressive windfall was an engagement ring. He can’t wait for his partner to see it, and it’s killing him he can’t pop the question right away, but it’s going to be worth the wait.
“I can’t wait to see her reaction – both to the proposal and then to the news that we’ve won lotto! It’s going to be a Christmas to remember, that’s for sure,” said the $1.000.000 winner.
