Young Sarina woman still planning to show up to work after discovering $10 million Oz Lotto win
Despite discovering this morning she’d become an overnight multi-millionaire thanks to last night’s Oz Lotto draw, a young Sarina woman is still planning to head to work today.
The North Queenslander held the only division one winning entry nationally in Oz Lotto draw 1461, drawn Tuesday 15 February 2022. She scored $10 million.
“I haven’t had a chance to look at my ticket yet. I’ve just been getting ready for work,” she explained when speaking with us.
“Oh my god! Holy sh**! That’s amazing. We’re multi-millionaires!
“My partner’s sitting beside me, and he’s heard what you’ve said too. He’s gobsmacked!
“This is a life-changing win for us. It’s come at the best time! We’ve had a tough few months, so this will help us so much.
“You dream of things like this happening, but you never imagine it actually happening.
“I always read stories about your winners and think about that happening to me and what I’d do with the prize and now it has happened to me, and it’s so strange! What the hell!
“Unfortunately, we have to go to work today. We don’t want to let our teams down, so I don’t think we’ll be able to call in sick, but we might do something nice tonight to celebrate.”
The generous winner admitted she couldn’t wait to use her prize to help speed up her parents’ retirement plans.
“This really means everything for us. It means we can get our dream home, and I can help my parents retire, which is a dream come true!” she shared.
“It’ll help us live an amazing life. I’m not sure what we’ll do with the rest. We never expected to be multi-millionaires!”
Her life-changing entry was purchased at Freechoice Sarina, Shop 6, Sarina Village Shopping Centre, 20 Broad Street, Sarina.
Freechoice Sarina owner Miranda Roberts said she was over the moon to hear a division one win went to a local customer.
“How exciting is that!” she said.
“This is our second division one win in less than one year. We sold a division one winning ticket in Saturday Gold Lotto in August last year, and now we’ve had this win.
“We’re on a bit of a winning streak, so we hope to keep making more of our customers division one winners.
“We can just imagine the prize would be life-changing for our customer! What a way to make 2022 the best year yet!.”
