Queensland mum wins $30 million in Oz Lotto draw

A young Gold Coast mum is $30 million richer after becoming the sole division one winner of tonight's Oz Lotto draw.

The Burleigh woman in her 30s was enjoying a cup of tea before bed when an official from The Lott called to break the life-changing news.

The winning numbers in Oz Lotto draw 1440 on Tuesday, September 21 were 27, 42, 31, 38, 37, 3 and 39, while the supplementary numbers were 17 and 10.


"This (is) amazing. This is life-changing. I have no idea what to say," the winner said.

The woman, who did not want to be named, said she wanted to share her new fortune with others.

"Everybody has had such a strange year with COVID. Our family's lives have been turned upside down," she said.

"But with this, we can set ourselves up, set our kids up, set our family up. It will change our lives, and we'll want to share that kindness with others.

"It's a lot to take on board.

"I actually checked the draw results before, but they weren't ready, so I went and had a shower.


"I have a cup of tea to drink, but I think we'll have a drink instead.

"The kids are in bed, but we'll be pacing up and down all night thinking about it all.

"It's amazing."

The woman purchased the winning 24-game QuickPick online at thelott.com.

Hers was the only division one winning entry in Tuesday night's draw.

The Lott said there had been 333 division one winners so far this calendar year.

In the 12 months to June 30, 23 division one winning Oz Lotto entries collectively took home more than $283.12 million.

During that time, the biggest Oz Lotto jackpot was $50 million, which was won by a North Sydney woman in July last year.

Of those 23 Oz Lotto division one winning entries, there were seven each in Victoria and Western Australia, five in New South Wales, two in Queensland, and one each in South Australia and the Northern Territory.

As it approached Nurses Road, the vehicle left the roadway and crashed down an embankment.

The woman and two of the children, aged two and eight, died at the scene.

Police said another motorist may have hit one of the children who was on the road.

The man, who was travelling on Wisemans Ferry Road shortly after the crash, has been taken to hospital for mandatory testing.

NSW Ambulance Chief Superintendent Brent Armitage said it was impossible to describe the scene faced by paramedics and first responders.

"This was an absolutely horrendous scene for everyone involved," he said.

"Our hearts go out to the family and friends of these victims.

"It's a tragic loss of life.

"There is no way to put into words what paramedics and first responders were faced with when arriving on scene."

The three surviving children were treated at the scene and airlifted to John Hunter Hospital, where they remain in stable conditions.

Police have established a crime scene and commenced inquiries.

Officers from the Metropolitan Crash Investigation Unit are also on scene and will conduct a full investigation, NSW Police said.

Wisemans Ferry Road, near Nurses Road, will remain closed for some time with local diversions in place.
