A Broome couple claim it was an ‘unusual’ feeling that helped guide them to their million dollar Saturday lotto win.

The pair, who did not want to be named for privacy reasons, purchased the ticket for the Saturday, January 16 draw at the Broome Pantry, and raked in just over $1 million with the division one win.

The couple said retirement plans were now an option thanks to the win.
