Sunshine Coast woman wins $15 million in Oz Lotto

EARLY retirement is on the cards for one Sunshine Coast woman after she won the entire $15 million jackpot in Tuesday night's Oz Lotto draw.

The woman screamed down the phone before bursting into tears of joy after a Golden Casket official confirmed she'd scooped the multi-million dollar division one prize.

The winner was oblivious to her new multi-millionaire status until she checked her registered entry Wednesday afternoon as her Winners Circle Card contact details were out-of-date and Golden Casket couldn't reach her this morning with the good news.
 
It's a timely reminder for all Winners Circle Card members to make sure they update their personal details if they change their phone number or home address, so they can be contacted by Golden Casket if they win a division one prize.
 
The winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, said her $15 million Oz Lotto windfall will mean a lifestyle change for her and her husband along with early retirement.
