A young mother who lives in one of Sydney’s most secluded suburbs was devastated by her big Lotto victory after starting the game just three weeks ago.
The 20-year-old mother from Fairfield, west Sydney, held the only winning entry in Division 1 of Wednesday’s Lotto Strike draw 5015, which was worth $ 302,379.25.
The young woman couldn’t contain her excitement when an official confirmed the prize on Thursday morning, having only played a few games before her victory.

“I started playing only about three weeks ago. I played a few games and thought about trying Lotto Strike, ”she said.
“On this post, I just used a combination of dates of birth and special numbers.”
The woman, who purchased the winning ticket online, checked her entry after the draw and couldn’t believe what she saw – believing the odds of winning were low.
“I sat there in shock for a long time and then had a hard time falling asleep afterward,” she said.
