A shocked Gold Coast grandmother has locked herself in her office to process the life-changing news of her becoming Australia’s newest millionaire.
The woman was one of three Division 1 winners who each took home $ 1 million in the Gold Lotto draw on Wednesday night, and she is now going on her very first vacation.
The grandmother had no idea of her big windfall and was at work in the middle of a hectic morning when she was interrupted on Thursday by a surprising phone call from The Lott.
‘Oh my God! I’m in the middle of something. It has been such a busy working day. I was smashed this morning, ‘the excited winner told The Lott official.

‘I feel a little nauseous. It’s good news. I’m so busy, but this break is worth it.
‘This is life changing. You have no idea. I can not believe it. ‘
The woman, who has been on and off for a number of years, admitted locking herself in the office to share the life-changing news.
“I’ll have to take a long tea break to calm down and let the news sink in,” she said.
‘I always told my family that one day I would win. I’ve always said I’d be happy with a smaller win of a few hundred thousand dollars.
‘Only a million dollars! Wow! It’s just crazy. I never thought it would happen. ‘

The lucky winner is looking forward to finally taking her very first vacation and sharing her windfall with her children and grandchildren.
“I’ve never had my own home, so I’ve never been able to help them own one, so this will give us all an edge,” she said.
‘I started working when I was 16, and I never really stopped working. I’ve never really been on vacation.
“This will certainly be life-changing for all of us.”
The delighted winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, has purchased her winning QuickPick entry for 12 games online.
The next chance to become Australia’s newest millionaire is in Thursday night’s draw of $ 8 million worth of Powerball.
