A 49-year-old mother of two from Monash in the ACT has become a multi millionaire overnight after picking up the entire Division One prize of $2 million in Monday night’s draw.
The woman had taped the draw and then watched it later but had not yet checked the numbers against her ticket so she had no idea when a NSW Lotteries official phoned this morning to deliver the good news.
The winner was so overcome with the news that words initially escaped her as she cried tears of joy.
“I’m so shocked and happy,” she told a NSW Lotteries official through the tears.
