A pair of retired friends from the Hunter Valley have become instant millionaires after winning Lotto.
The pair won $2,222,000 after taking home a share of Saturday's $20 million dollar jackpot.
One of the lucky winners admits it's life-changing stuff.
"I checked the ticket yesterday and I first saw five numbers in a row and thought ‘oh that’s good’. But then I saw all six numbers were there!
"I nearly fainted! Nothing like this has ever happened to me before."
Both are planning to share the winnings with family.
The lucky ticket was purchased at Bulahdelah Newsagency.
