In case you missed it: Landslide of Lotto wins sweeps the country while Powerball crowns another multi-millionaire
Nothing puts a grin on our faces like starting the week with a crowd of new division one winners. And after 15 entries took out division one in the latest Saturday Lotto draw, we had a mass of surprised Aussies who had a grin on their faces too!
Melbourne players claim most division one prizes after a winning weekend
The Saturday Lotto loot landed far and wide after the weekend’s draw. Victoria was the top winning state with six winning entries. Three went to Western Australia, while there were two in Tasmania, two in South Australia, and one each in New South Wales and Queensland.
Five Melbourne players in particular got a timely boost of good news.
“God! Are you telling me I won division one? Because that would be fabulous news,” one South Yarra woman laughed when we called her on Monday morning.
“I am shaking right now and I can’t stop crying. This is going to be a massive help for my whole family.”
Psychic predicts Carnes Hill mum’s incredible $9 million Powerball win
The winning grins continued with a Sydney woman taking out the entire Powerball jackpot in Thursday night’s draw.
When we called to confirm her prize, she revealed a psychic had predicted someone in her family would win a life-changing lottery prize this year.
“I’m crying. I haven’t even told my husband yet. I’m just sitting at home,” she said.
“A psychic recently told my mum that someone in the family would win the lottery and that they would help the rest of the family. Oh my god. I guess she was right!”
With one prediction already coming true, the overjoyed woman confirmed she would indeed be sharing the prize with her family, while also treating herself to a new home and some diamond earrings to celebrate.

Queensland also gained a new millionaire this week, with a South Brisbane mum taking out division one in Wednesday Lotto. The unsuspecting women was mid school drop-off when she pulled over to take our winning call.
“Oh my god! Are you sure? Are you sure?” she screamed.
“I can’t believe I will finally be able to buy a house.”
