Gold Coast mum wins $30 million in September
The $50 million jackpot come after five consecutive weeks of no major prize wins, leaving the jackpot to raise each week.
The last division one winner was drawn on September 21, when a mum from the Gold Coast pocketed an incredible $30 million.
The woman, aged in her 30s, told lottery officials about the moment she found out she had won the top prize.
“I actually checked the draw results before, but they weren’t ready, so I went and had a shower,” she said.
The mum did not believe the news and asked: “Is this legit?”
She was enjoying a cup of tea while the kids were in bed and called the win “life-changing”.
“It’s amazing,” she said.
She added she swapped out her cuppa for something else to celebrate the big win.
She said it had turned her life “upside down” after a “strange year” due to coronavirus.
