A Fairfield woman who only started playing lottery games three weeks ago has been floored by her $300,000 Lotto Strike win last night. 

The mum in her 20s held the only division one winning entry in Lotto Strike draw 5015, drawn Wednesday 1 September 2021. 

She took home the division one prize of $302,379.25. 

“This is amazing!” the winner exclaimed when her prize was confirmed by our team this morning. 

“I only started playing about three weeks ago. I’ve been playing a few games and thought I’d give Lotto Strike a go. 

“On this ticket, I just used a combination of some birthdates and special numbers. 

“You think your chances of winning are small – you don’t expect to win! 

“I just happened to check my ticket last night after the draw. I sat there in shock for a long time and then had trouble getting to sleep after that. 

“This is the best news ever! It’s really going to help my young family out.” 

The winning woman’s marked 12-game entry was purchased online at thelott.com – Australia’s official lotteries.
