“I’m shaking and my head is spinning!”: Cranbourne mum comes forward as mystery $50 million Oz Lotto winner
A Cranbourne mum has ended the search for the nation’s newest multi-millionaire after this morning discovering she was the Victorian who won the entire $50 million Oz Lotto jackpot three days ago.
The Melburnian held the only division one winning entry nationally in Oz Lotto draw 1494, drawn Tuesday 4 October 2022, that scored $50 million.
The regular player checked her ticket this morning and admitted she had been left dumbfounded by the revelation.
“I’m shaking and my head is spinning! I can’t believe this,” she laughed when speaking to us.
“I couldn’t believe it when I found out there was only one division one winner in Oz Lotto and that they purchased their ticket from Hampton Park. I thought to myself, ‘It can’t be me!’.
“I decided to look up the winning numbers online this morning and cross them out on my ticket one by one. I was left shocked.
“Since discovering the news, I haven’t stopped shaking like a leaf.
“I only ever win $15 on a lottery ticket, so $50 million is out of this world. I’ve been playing for a few years, but I never expected this to happen to me.
“I’ll tell my family once the prize lands in my bank account. It’s so hard to believe it’s true, so I have to see it myself first!”
When asked how she planned to enjoy $50 million, the hard-working woman confessed she would first need time to process her incredible good fortune.
“This is life-changing!” she cried.
“In all honestly, I can’t think right now. It’s too much of a surprise to think of what I’ll exactly do with my prize, but I know it will go to good use.
“I’m so thankful and can’t wait for what’s to come.”
The winning woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased her ticket at Hampton Park Lotto, Kiosk 1, 55 Hallam Road, Hampton Park.
Hampton Park Lotto owner Annabelle Johnstone said her team and the entire city had been on the edge of their seats waiting for the winner to discover their multi-million-dollar win.
“We’re so happy to see the winner has discovered their spectacular win and has come forward after three days of complete mystery! It’s a glory for Hampton Park,” she said.
“We still can’t believe we’ve sold a division one winning entry worth $50 million, so I can’t imagine how the winner is feeling after discovering this prize.
“The entire team at Hampton Park Lotto couldn’t be happier for her, and we hope one day we can speak to her in person and congratulate her on her win. All the very best to her!”
