A woman has explained why she's decided to put the £4.5 million mansion she won on the market.
However, the 74-year-old grandma-of-six has since revealed her plans to sell the house.
When she first won the house and a whopping £100,000 on top, June explained she was 'just settling in for a standard Friday night in front of the tele'.
"Then the next thing I knew I'd won a mansion," she says, as per Omaze's blog. "I couldn't believe it."
While June and her family did enjoy their time at the house - the 74-year-old initially saying she would 'definitely keep it for a while' - the grandmother has since decided to sell it three months after winning it.
The house went to June with all stamp duty and legal fees covered and mortgage free and it has since appeared on Rightmove.
The 74-year-old is selling the property for the same price it was originally evaluated at the time she won it - £4.5 million.
The six-bedroom house with a cinema room, large terrace, boat store and a secluded garden has been put on the market by JB Estates.
But why is the 74-year-old getting rid of the luxury home so soon?
June reflects on winning the house as 'an incredible experience'.
"I still can't believe it all actually happened to me," she says, according to the Mail Online. "It still feels so surreal."
She notes she and her family enjoyed a family holiday at the property and they all 'absolutely love the house and Cornwall'.
"The house is just wonderful and it's been a magical holiday that we'll remember forever," she says.
However, the 74-year-old ultimately decided to sell the house to 'use the money to help all [her] children and grandchildren with the next chapter in their lives'.
The house has given June and her family financial security - something her late husband Ron had always hoped for them.
June resolves: "The money is going to make such a huge difference to all of us."
