It was only a week ago when a player from Pinjarra, West Australia, became a millionaire by winning the classic Wednesday Lotto of AU$1 million. Tuesday’s night Oz Lotto draw concluded in an even bigger win! A single ticket matched the magical numbers, awarding its owners with an astounding jackpot of AU$15 million!

The winners of Oz Lotto Tuesday’s draw are an anonymous couple from the southern suburbs of Perth. They came to claim their win on Wednesday and were welcomed at Lotterywest’s Winners Room. According to the woman, they learned of the win only on the morning following the draw.

"I kept double checking the numbers and couldn't stop pacing up and down the hallway," she said, "My partner had left for work and when I finally got through to him, I asked him to sit down. Then I said I've got a full line of numbers on OZ Lotto!” The combination that awarded the couple with the sixth largest prize won in WA was: 5, 17, 22, 27, 29, 31, and 35. The two bonus numbers were 12 and 38.

When it comes to spending the money, the first order of business is to aid her sister financially, said the woman: "we've always had a home, but my sister and her family never have. They've struggled, and now we are able to make a real difference and buy their dream home for them.” 

She also plans to treat her mother to a dream vacation with a friend and set up an education fund for other relatives. After taking care of all that, the lucky couple is looking forward to use some of their multi-million prize towards an early retirement.
