An Adelaide woman has won 10 times more than she originally thought she did after misreading their Saturday Lotto ticket.

The Kilkenny woman and her partner bought a 10 game ticket online and when she went to check her ticket and buy one for next week, she realised she had won big.

“At first, I thought we’d won $179,000, not $1.79 million! I couldn’t believe it when I realised it was a million-dollar prize,” the woman told The Lott.

“I was elated! There was lots of screaming once it started to sink in.”

The pair held one of the three division one winning entries in Saturday X Lotto draw 4249 on Saturday 9 April 2022.

Each division one winning entry scored $1,799,494.87.

The woman said they would buy a nice bottle of champagne to celebrate and would be able to afford a new home and to retire much sooner than originally planned.

The biggest lottery wins from around the world

“We were so excited last night. We didn’t get a wink of sleep,” she said.

The winning numbers in Saturday X Lotto draw 4249 on 9 April 2022 were 19, 1, 40, 31, 35 and 8, while the supplementary numbers were 38 and 15.

The three division one tickets were purchased in South Australia, Western Australia and Queensland.
