Each of the 250 participants walked away with $261,986, with the couple taking home double the amount because they bought into the syndicate separately.

But their joy turned to fury when a former government worker, known as Mr Ing, claimed he was part of the winning syndicate and entitled to a stake of the multi million-dollar prize pool – which the Parkes insist is not true.

They will fight Mr Ing for the cash in the Supreme Court on August 2.

As the crunch civil case looms, Mrs Parkes opened up on Saturday about her husband’s battle as a leg amputee with high blood pressure.

‘Unfortunately, we have been placed under a lot of stress over the last few months with issues we can’t discuss and I need to make Kevin’s health a priority at the moment,’ she wrote on her business’ Facebook page.

‘He has dangerously high blood pressure which is boarding (sic) on hospitalisation but they were able to get under control last night.He is resting up today.’

However, Mr Parkes condition could mean they’re forced to shut shop significantly earlier than planned.

‘It is pushing us to the point of probably having to close our heart and soul our beloved shop for good very very soon,’ the mother-of-two continued.
