North Lakes woman surprises family with $52,000 Super 66 win by sending a group message!
A North Lakes woman has shared her family “went wild” after she sent a photo of her $52,000 winning Super 66 ticket to them via a group message.
The Queenslander held the only division one winning entry in Super 66 draw 4173, drawn Saturday 17 July 2021.
She takes home a division one prize of $52,495.25.
Confirming her prize with us this morning, the Moreton Bay region woman explained she’d been in a state of shock since discovering her win on the weekend.
“Oh my god, woo-hoo!” she laughed.
“I checked my online The Lott account on Saturday night, and I noticed all of the numbers were lit up.
“I thought, ‘no way! Is that real?’.
“I ran straight upstairs and shared the news with my husband. He was absolutely gobsmacked! He couldn’t believe it.
“He just kept saying, ‘How much did you win? Tell me again!’.
“It’s a complete blessing. I’m so glad it’s real!
“We have a family group message, and I sent them a photo of my online account and they all replied instantly.
“Everyone was going wild with excitement!”
When asked how she planned to enjoy her prize, the elated woman said she was happily dreaming up ideas.
“There’s a few bills we need to pay and some things that need doing around the house,” she shared.
“It will be nice not to have to work to pay for those things.
“I’ve also always wanted a really nice gold necklace, so I will get myself one of those too.”
The winning entry was purchased online at thelott.com – Australia’s official lotteries.
