An Oz Lotto player from Perth recent went round joking that the lucky winner of the $1.3million Division One prize was indeed her. Little did she know that Lady Luck too had an excellent sense of humour and the happy Oz Lotto player was, in fact, the jackpot winner!
The lucky Oz Lotto player, from Kwinana in Western Australia, told lottery officials while claiming her prize that she heard there had been a local Oz Lotto winner.
“I heard someone in Kwinana had won, so went around telling everyone it was me,” she said.
The happy-go-lucky lottery players had no idea that what she was joking would end up becoming a reality.
While speaking to officials she said that she did double-check her Oz Lotto tickets but managed to miss the line which contained the winning Oz Lotto numbers.
It was only when her son pointed out that her ticket was actually a winner.
“I guess the joke was on me in the end,” she said.
She said that she plans to clear up all her debt and enjoy looking after her children and grandchildren with her lucky Oz Lotto jackpot win.
Jokingly, her partner said that he too has a few ideas of his own and if he plays his cards right he would like “A Harley for every day of the week.”
The winning Oz Lotto numbers were 8-45-6-2-39-36 with supplementary numbers 5 and 13.
