A single mum from the Hunter region says she was crying, laughing and screaming the moment she checked her Saturday Lotto ticket and realised she was suddenly a millionaire.
The New South Wales resident held one of the five division one winning entries in Saturday Lotto draw 4137, drawn Saturday 13 March 2021. Each division one winning entry scored $1,165,537.35.
