A young mother living in one of Sydney’s most closed-off suburbs has been knocked out by her big Lotto win after only starting the game three weeks ago.
The mother in her twenties from Fairfield in western Sydney had the only winning entry in the first division in Wednesday’s Lotto Strike 5015 drawing, which came in at $302,379.25.
The young woman couldn’t contain her excitement when an official confirmed the award on Thursday morning, after playing only a few games before winning.

“I only started playing three weeks ago. I’ve played a few games and thought I’d give Lotto Strike a try,” she said.
“On this card I just used a combination of some dates of birth and special numbers.”
The woman, who bought the winning ticket online, happened to check her entry after the draw and couldn’t believe what she saw – she thought the odds of ever winning were slim.
“I sat there in shock for a long time and then struggled to fall asleep,” she says.

The young mother currently living in her suburb due to strict Covid lockdown restrictions said the victory is the best news she has received in a long time, and it will help her young family.
The winning numbers drawn on Wednesday were 43, 25, 31 and 13.
Lott’s division one winners have now reached 306 for this calendar year, including 90 won by NSW Lotteries customers.
