Woman on Easy Street after winning huge Lotto jackpot

Lotto millionaire says she’s going to quit working and buy a horse

 A 47-year-old Helsingør woman who won a lotto jackpot of over 3 hundred million kroner – the largest in Danish history –  says she plans to get a horse, a new apartment, oh, and never go back to work again.

“I’ve always wanted a horse, and now I have enough to buy one,” the woman told Ekstra Bladet.

She also plans to buy her son a house.

“He always said he would buy me one if he won the lottery, so I guess I’ll buy him one now that I’ve won,” she said.

Husband still working
The win came at a good time for the woman and her family; she had just lost her job. She doesn’t plan to look for another one.

“I’m done with working,” she said.

Her husband will take tomorrow off, but be back to work on Tuesday.

“It’s her money,” he said.
