The fortunate woman felt like she was living in a dream as she struggled to believe her life-changing news was real.

She had the only division one winning entry across the country in the Oz Lotto draw 148, drawn Tuesday 5 July 2022.  

“At first, we thought I’d won $30,000. Then we double-checked the ticket and I remember thinking, ‘oh my goodness, we’ve won $30 million!” the woman said, sharing the moment she and her husband confirmed the news.

She found herself lying awake that night thinking about all the ways their lives are about to change with that amount of money. She still could not believe it, adding that she might need to pinch herself again to make sure it was real.

The woman said the first thing on their list is buying their first home. The woman and her husband are also planning to ensure themselves and their families up for the future.
