There’s nothing like scoring a major lottery prize just in time for holidays, and treating your loved ones to everything they could possibly wish for. That’s exactly what members of one fortunate Australian family did this Easter thanks to their impressive $574.000 lotto prize.
Player from Rivervale who bought the winning ticket is one fortunate woman in her 80s, who intends to share the prize money with her family. She made the life-changing purchase at Here’s Luck Lottery Centre at Belmont Forum, but never expected it would lead to this incredible victory.
“I’ve won smaller amounts over the years, but never the big one. I think the news of the win will be a little bit more exciting than Easter eggs for the family,” joked the Rivervale player.
She never saw this coming, but members of her family were certain she’ll end up winning one day, since they’ve always considered her their lucky charm. They all pooled the money together, but felt it would be best if the grandma purchased the ticket.
This strategy eventually paid off since the player from Rivervale ended up pocketing $574.000. She decided to keep the news for herself until Easter, because she felt it’s the perfect time to tell her nearest and dearest they’re about to share an impressive lottery windfall.
Lotterywest spokesperson James Mooney was excited to hear that this family will get to celebrate their victory just in time for Easter and said it “never gets old to see a family share in the wonderful news that they’ve won”.
