In case you missed it: Dreams become reality for winning Aussies
Winners often say their lottery prize is a dream come true. For one thrilled Aussie this week, she meant it quite literally!

Seven winning entries score with Saturday Lotto’s Superdraw
Spring has certainly sprung for our Superdraw winners who shared the $20 million division one prize pool last weekend.
Each division one winning entry scored an incredible $2.8 million!
The wins landed across the nation, with three in Victoria, two in New South Wales, and one each in Queensland and Western Australia.
One of these winners was a Gosford woman who dreamt something amazing would happen on the night of the draw — and she was right!
“I’m feeling shocked. I had a dream about the 4th of September, thinking that something special would happen, which is why I bought the ticket,” she shared.
“This is a miracle. This is amazing. Oh my god. We’re going to be able to really enjoy the rest of our lives.”
Horsham couple to live their dream life
A Horsham couple is now planning to retire from work, purchase their dream home and embrace the ‘beach bum’ life as soon as possible, thanks to their Monday & Wednesday Lotto win!
The dynamic duo scored a division one prize of $1 million.
With her eyes half-closed, the winning woman checked her ticket as soon as she woke up, later discovering her six numbers matched up!
“I went and got my husband to check, and he said, ‘no way! That can’t be right!’,” the merry woman laughed.
“It’s a shot in the arm! We couldn’t think of a better time to win.”
An unforgettable morning for Ulverstone mother
In Tasmania, one mum’s usual morning routine was transformed when she scratched a top prize of $10,000 on an Instant Scratch-Its ticket.
The Ulverstone woman had dropped her children off at school and made a stop to her local newsagency to purchase a pack of scratchies.
“I decided to buy one of those packs, and then I went home and made myself a cup of coffee and sat down to scratch them,” she exclaimed.
“When I saw I’d won the top prize on this ticket, I couldn’t believe it. I thought, ‘this can’t be right.”
Revesby man almost throws out million-dollar winning Lotto ticket
It really was a week of dreams becoming reality, and also trash becoming treasure! As one Sydney player discovered this week, you might want to think twice when throwing out your lottery tickets.
“You wouldn’t believe it, I accidentally threw my ticket out, and I just had to go looking through the bins for the ticket. But we found it!” he said.
“It’s incredible. To be honest, I am in shock.
“I am very, very happy. But I am in shock. This is going to change our lives in such a big way!”
