She had no idea she had a winning entry when Golden Casket finally got in contact with her.
“No way,” she cried.
“Thank you. Oh my god! I can’t believe it.
“Thank you so much!
“I just checked my ticket and thought ‘I hope I win $10 so I can put it on Oz Lotto’.
The woman said she bought the ticket on the spur of the moment while shopping last week.
“This is the best news for my family. It’s just amazing.
“This is life-changing! I can’t believe this is happening!
She said she would use the money to pay off the mortgage and look at buying their dream waterfront home.
The second winner from Broadbeach bought her ticket online and was just as shocked when she found out the news.
“That’s unbelievable. Thank you! Wow!
“I feel numb. That is just incredible!
“I only play occasionally but I’ve always said ‘you’ve got to be in it to win it’!
The woman says she has no plans to stop working and would look at donating some of her winnings to a few animal charities and sharing it with friends and family.
On top of the two Broadbeach winners there was another winner in Queensland, two in Victoria and one from Western Australia.
