First Division Prize is a Dream Come True for Toowoomba Grandmother

The Australian Lotto player who scooped a AUD$ 624,000 first division win on Saturday claimed her prize on Monday and told lottery officials it was a dream come true.

The grandmother from Toowoomba then explained the winning numbers came to her in a dream over a decade ago and she has been using them ever since.

"I remember I woke up in the morning and thought I better write the numbers down before I forgot them," she said.

The lucky lady has opted to remain anonymous, but lottery staff say she is very excited by the win.

When asked if she had any plans for the money she said: "Who knows at this stage! But I’d say I’ll most likely invest in property and perhaps do some travel."
