A southeast Queensland woman has made a life-changing decision after winning $1 million on Lotto.
The woman, who lives in Victoria Point in Brisbane’s southeast, won $1,497,160.07 from Saturday Gold Lotto.
She held one of three division one winning entries and only discovered she was a winner on Sunday after scanning the entry at the newsagency.
“I’m still shaking and I still feel funny in the stomach,” she said.
“I just can’t believe this has happened to me.”
The woman said she and her husband plan on buying a caravan and a new home.
But on Monday, she had some other business to attend to.
“I was just in the office with my boss resigning,” she said.
“My husband and I were hoping to retire at the end of the year but we are doing it now.
“This prize has really come at the most perfect time.”
Saturday’s winning numbers were were 40, 42, 16, 38, 11 and 33, while the supplementaries were 45 and 12.
One of the other division one winning entrants has been identified as a resident of Hillarys in Perth’s north while the other was a woman living in Colac, southwest of Melbourne.
