The draw was made last Friday at the Lotto Agents Christmas Party Night at St Judes ARLFC Clubhouse, with the late Gordon 'Golden Gamble' Harrison's wife Sandra present to make the draw.
Mrs Higham, joins Lynda Ingham from Hindley, who walked away from the Warrington game earlier this year with £10,000 as past of the bi-annual jackpot draw.
Julie is pictured with her agent Dave Hesketh, also from whelley. She has been doing the Lotto for 30 years.
Commenting on the win Julie simply said: "I'm gobsmacked!"
The money has come in handy to help with home alterations as her husband Warren is confined to a wheelchair while her son Paul will also help to spend the money wisely.
Wigan Warriors Lotto has helped Julie and can help you too! But remember, you have to be in it to win it!
