Since hearing of a lottery win during a lecture, an Adelaide university student has found herself $4.8 million richer.
When she heard the news, the 20-year-old Glenelg woman was sitting in a class.
The Lott says the young woman was overjoyed and broke down in tears.
“I was actually at uni in a lecture and I checked my emails and saw one from you telling me I’d won something,” she said.
“I didn’t think much of it, so I just logged into my account quickly and that’s when I realised.
“I was just watching the clock, waiting for it to finish so I could call back.”
The university student says she plans on using the windfall to spoil her mum with a new house and car.
“I really don’t know where to start. I am still going to finish university, because it’s something I really want to do,” she said.
“I would love to buy my mum a house and I’d love to get myself one too.
“Once we can travel, I would love to do heaps of trips around Australia and overseas.”
