A South Australia woman’s Sunday drive became unforgettable when she learned that she had won $3.3 million in Saturday X Lotto.

The lucky woman undertook a leisurely drive with her family on Sunday, not knowing that she had scored division one in Saturday X Lotto, which was drawn the previous evening.

The woman, who is in her 60s, was one of three division one winners from Saturday X Lotto draw 4195 on October 2.

Each division one winner, who were from New South Wales, South Australia and Victoria respectively, scored $3,333,333.34.

During the drive, a representative from The Lott called her and revealed the news of her win.

“Oh my God, that’s amazing!” she told the representative.

The Lott reported that the other car occupants erupted in celebration at the news, while the woman was reportedly shocked.

“I’m just on the side of the road, I’ve pulled over,” the woman said.

“I don’t think I can drive home at the moment.”

The winning numbers in Saturday X Lotto draw 4195 were 26, 13, 44, 28, 17 and 33, with supplementary numbers 18 and 38.

The woman, who told The Lott that she’d been playing System 7 for decades, purchased her winning ticket online at thelott.com.

Woman’s bold multi-million dollar retirement vow

Following surprise news of an unknown lotto win, a South Australia woman has begun planning how she will use her new multi-million dollar fortune.

The woman initially reacted in shock to news of the win, before discussing her plans with a representative of The Lott.

“I can’t believe it,” she said.

“Things are going to change!”

Reactions of disbelief are not uncommon among Lotto winners, with previous winners assuming their winning phone call was a prank, and others pressing The Lott representatives to re-check their data.

The woman told The Lott’s representative that she intended to use her new-found wealth to retire early.

The woman also said that she planned to put her winnings towards travel, which follows an international travel announcement from the Australian Government.

The Lott’s division one winning tally has now reached 345 so far this calendar year, including 31 won by South Australian customers.

Whopping $20 million still up for grabs

With Tuesday’s Oz Lotto offering $5 million and Thursday’s Powerball boasting a huge $20 million up for grabs, there are more chances to win on the horizon.

Tonight’s Set for Life draw also offers players a chance to win a division one prize of $20,000 a month for 20 years.

With international lotteries also in play, The Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot prize is now $3.64 million for draw 1546, while the Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot prize is now $2.97 million for draw 10494.

In the 12 months to 30 June 2021, Saturday X Lotto created 174 millionaires across Australia.
