From Chinese lanterns to winning dreams and a new set of wheels, we’ve heard it all this week. Check out our highlights below.  

$30 million Oz Lotto jackpot split between two

A Blacktown man who had a sleepless night earlier this week after discovering his $15 million Oz Lotto win. 

“This is life-changing! To win on the 30th anniversary of Oz Lotto makes it all the sweeter,” he told us.

“My wife and I are already fantasising about booking an overseas trip too. We haven’t travelled in years and don’t know where we want to go yet but we can’t wait.

“Thank you so much, mate. I don’t know when I’ll be able to sleep again.”

Meanwhile a Gordon Park man shared the other half of the prize bagging $15 million! 

“This is blowing my mind!” the winning man said. 

“We’ve also been trying to prepare for our future and invest, and this is really going to kickstart the rest of our lives.

“I honestly can’t believe it. Thank you so much.”
New set of wheels for Elanora woman 

An Elanora woman who admitted her car needed an upgrade can finally do so thanks to her $100,000 Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot win!

“We were just saying the other day we need a new car. The one we have is run down and rusting. It’s over 20 years old so it’s time for a bit of a change,” she said.  

“This will help with that and maybe the rest we can share with the family.

“What a wonderful and lovely surprise. Thank you so much.”

Lunar New Year brings player $250,000 win

A Plumpton retiree couldn’t believe his eyes when he scratched his $250,000 prize off a $10 Instant Scratch-Its ticket after putting his faith in a Chinese superstition.

“You wouldn’t believe it as well, but it was Lunar New Year a few weeks ago and I was passing a store on my way to the newsagency and the shop keeper told me about one of his lanterns he was selling,” he said.

“I don’t usually believe in superstitions, but he told me in the Chinese culture that lanterns ‘bring a lot of money’ and ‘good luck’, so I bought it and hung it up in my house when I got home.

“After I hung up the lantern, I won $100 on another Instant Scratch-Its ticket and then this top prize of $250,000! My sister even told me she wants my lantern now, but the lantern is staying!”
Winning dream leads to $100,000 prize 

An Ashfield man dreamt of winning the lottery the night before he discovered his $100,000 Lucky Lotteries Super jackpot prize!

“Do you want to know something weird? I didn’t sleep well last night, and I had a dream that you called!” the winning man told us. 

“In the dream, I was cruising in my new car, but I don’t think I’ll be doing that just yet. There are a few things at home I need to do first – new wardrobes and things like that.

“Everyone that plays thinks about the day they win. I mean you’d be crazy if you didn’t, that’s the whole fun of it. How fantastic. What a way to start my Monday!”

Could we be calling you next? We sure do hope so!
