Woman who dreamed of winning big scored $3.65 million Lucky Lotteries jackpot

Saturday 23 June, 2012 - A Kotara shopper in her fifties will spend the weekend thinking of how she will spend her $3.65 million $2 Lucky Lotteries jackpot win after having her good fortune confirmed by a NSW Lotteries official on Friday evening.

The winner said that she became aware that someone who purchased their ticket from News 2 U, the same outlet she recently purchased her $2 lucky Lotteries ticket from, while watching the evening news.

After hearing a phone message from a NSW Lotteries official she immediately returned the phone call to hear the good news.

“Oh my God, I have dreamed of this happening and have dreamed of how I would spend the money many times!” the winner exclaimed.

“I will pay off the mortgage, put some money in my Superannuation fund and help my children.

“This is amazing, I can’t wait to tell my husband,” the shocked winner added.

The $2 Lucky Lotteries $3.65 million jackpot winning ticket was purchased from News 2 U at Westfield Shoppingtown, Kotara.

The winner scored the $3.65 million prize with a single $2 Lucky Lotteries ticket which cost just $2.20.

The jackpot in the $2 Jackpot Lottery is won when the selected jackpot number has already won a cash prize in the same lottery. 

In the same  draw, the winner scored a $10 cash prize before her winning number was selected for the $3.65 million jackpot prize.

Tickets are now on sale for Saturday Lotto’s mid-year $30 million Megadraw on 30 June. To be in with a chance of winning a share in $30 million visit a NSW Lotteries outlet to purchase a ticket today.
