A woman from Sydney got a pleasant surprise when she visited her local newsagent's shop and had her tickets scanned following the Australian Lotto's Saturday Megadraw. When she handed over her first ticket she was already aware she'd had a small win. Then when she handed over the second ticket the newsagent told her she'd won the Lotto. "Yes, I know; I've won $13.10," she said, but the newsagent replied, "No, this is what you've won," and pointed to a first division prize of $1,428,592.63.
The lucky winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, admits she had to keep pinching herself to check if she was dreaming. She now plans to invest some of her winnings in a new house.
