Australian Wins Mega-Millions $1.3M Prize in Lotto-Land Draw

It was officially American Independence Day, but for one Australian, the fourth of July will be forever celebrated as the day she declared financial independence!

The 56-year-old Melbournian collected a whopping $1,315,650.04 for successfully matching five from five main numbers betting on the monster American MegaMillions Lottery.

The Victorian’s win becomes the single biggest prize claimed by a Lottoland member since the company launched in Australia last year.

How a Melbourne Mum Won Mega-Large on MegaMillions

“I’m numb. It’s happening? It’s happening to me?”

This was the first reaction of our lucky winner after being informed she had just won a jaw-dropping $1.31 million thanks to her bet on the Mega Millions lottery.

The grandmother to eleven signed up to Lottoland in January of this year and has been betting across the full range of Australian and International lotteries since. While she had collected a number of smaller wins, nothing could have prepared her for the life-changing sum that was about to come her way.

The lucky Lottoland member’s MegaMillions bet successfully matched 5 from 5 main numbers – 16, 39, 47, 53, 71. Her “completely random” set of numbers were enough to earn her the massive Division 2 prize – a staggering $1,315,650.04.

“I received a phone call from Lottoland and I was ecstatic,” said the new millionaire.

She immediately informed her husband of the exciting news and started making plans for her newfound freedom.

“I’m going to visit my family in Romania – I haven’t been there in 20 years – and maybe I’ll buy a house,” she added.

A big congratulations to our winner from everyone at Lottoland!

How Can I Win MegaMillions?

Despite the $1.3m MegaMillions win being more than what Australians can collect winning the jackpot on the local Monday/Wednesday lotto, it was actually only the Division 2 prize! The MegaMillions Division 1 Jackpot wasn’t won and climbs to a mind-boggling US $186 million* (approx. $245 million*) this Saturday.

To win the MegaMillions Jackpot, you need to pick 5 numbers from a range of 1-75 and one MegaBall from a range of 1-15. Match all five main numbers and the MegaBall and you will be rolling in a ridiculous amount of cash!

Our lucky Melbournian was actually just one ball away from winning the MegaBall Jackpot and being instantly catapulted into an Australian rich list. Her chosen MegaBall was the number 2, but had she selected the number 15, the MegaMillions jackpot was hers! Still, who can argue with a $1,315,650.04

Caboolture Queensland Australia woman wins $2.77 million on Gold Lotto

A QUEENSLANDER is today $2.77 million richer after a remarkable winning run over two days this week.

A woman from the Caboolture region, north of Brisbane, won $2.77 million on last night’s Gold Lotto.

The woman, who has not been named, won division one four times on a single Monday and Wednesday Gold Lotto entry.

It followed her $17,000 win in a lower divisional prizes on Monday.

“I’ve been waiting to hear from someone from Golden Casket all my life!” she told a Golden Casket official who rang with the news.

“It’s just unreal! I’ve had two wins in the past few weeks and now last night I won $2.77 million. It’s crazy!

“It’s like you get your lucky time in your life and it all happens. That’s how it feels to me.

“It’s been a bit of a roll of wins lately. I thought my luck may have run out but it’s just got better. This is the icing on top of the cake!”

The winning entry was bought online at thelott.com and consisted of four marked System 12 games of identical numbers.

Apart from winning division one four times — once for each marked game on her entry — she also won division 3 144 times and division 4 900 times. In total, her system entry won 1048 times across all divisions!

“All we want to do is play golf a couple of times a week and kick back,” she said.

“We’ve worked hard our whole lives. It’s time to put the boots down. It’s just amazing.

“It’s just unreal! This is more than I can even get my head around.

“I could not sleep last night! This means we don’t have to worry about paying bills and we can help our family out. It’s just beautiful!”

It’s the second time in three weeks a Caboolture entry has won division one. A Caboolture couple won $792,331.85 with their entry in Saturday Gold Lotto on April 29.

Unemployed man from western Sydney NSW Australia wins $50 million in Powerball lottery

An unemployed man from western Sydney said he and his wife were at home on Thursday night discussing their plans for the future when he received a phone call that would change their lives.

A few days earlier, the man, in his 30s, had bought a ticket for Thursday night’s Powerball draw online. It was the first time he had done so, and he hadn’t seriously contemplated the possibility of winning.

A few minutes after Thursday night’s Powerball draw, he answered his phone, only to be told that he was the sole division one winner. He had scooped the entire $50 million prize.

The man, who wished to remain anonymous, thought someone was having a laugh.

“No. No. No. Don’t tell me that. Are you serious man? I’ll probably faint,” the man said to the caller, according to NSW Lotteries.

“I don’t know what to do. What should I do now? Should I call my mum? Should I hug my wife? What do I do?”

The size of his windfall also baffled him. “I don’t even know how many zeros are in $50 million,” he said.

The man said he had been unemployed since the end of last year, and he and his wife had just been contemplating what their struggling family would do next before he received the phone call.

“We were just sitting discussing what to do with our lives next – what to do with our future. It’s just a blessing I would say,” he said.

Asked his initial thoughts on what he would do with the cash, he said he “genuinely wanted to help people”.

He would share some with family and friends, and also hoped to open a restaurant to help those in need.

“I want to open a restaurant – that’s my passion – and give 50 per cent of the food away for free to people who need it.

“I don’t need profits, but there are homeless, students who are struggling, and people in need,” he said.
