Sunshine Coast woman wins $15 million in Oz Lotto!

Wednesday 5 February, 2014 - Early retirement is on the cards for one Sunshine Coast woman after she won the entire $15 million jackpot in last night’s Oz Lotto draw! 

The woman screamed down the phone before bursting into tears of joy after a Golden Casket official confirmed she’d scooped the multi-million dollar division one prize in last night’s draw. 

“I won! I can’t believe this. Oh my god, I won!” the emotional winner exclaimed.

“I’ve got to tell my husband. I don’t think he’s going to believe me when I tell him I’ve won $15 million! 

“I bought a QuickPick entry in Oz Lotto about 12 months ago and I won some money, so I decided to record those winning numbers to my Winners Circle Card and I’ve been playing them ever since!” 

The winner was oblivious to her new multi-millionaire status until she checked her registered entry this afternoon as her Winners Circle Card contact details were out-of-date and Golden Casket couldn’t reach her this morning with the good news. 

It’s a timely reminder for all Winners Circle Card members to make sure they update their personal details if they change their phone number or home address, so they can be contacted by Golden Casket if they win a division one prize. 

The winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, said her $15 million Oz Lotto windfall will mean a lifestyle change for her and her husband along with early retirement. 

“I’ve always wanted a holiday home and now I can build one! I have adult children and they’re now rich as well, but they don’t know it yet!” the excited winner added. 

The winning 12-game marked Oz Lotto entry was purchased from Nextra Caloundra, Shop 22 in Stockland Shopping Centre, 47 Bowman Road in Caloundra. 

The winning numbers in Oz Lotto draw 1042 on 4 February 2014 were 44, 43, 26, 3, 39, 22 and 5. The supplementary numbers were 8 and 15.
