Qld woman reaps $2,787,000 in lotto wins

A Queensland woman is $2.77 million richer after a division one Gold Lotto sweep two days after winning a another lottery prize.

The Caboolture woman won division one four times on Wednesday night with a single Gold Lotto entry, following her $17,000 win in a lower divisional prize on Monday.

"It's like you get your lucky time in your life and it all happens. That's how it feels to me," she said.

The woman says she will use the money to help her family, as well as play more golf.

"We've worked hard our whole lives. It's time to put the boots down. It's just amazing," she told a Golden Casket official.

"This means we don't have to worry about paying bills and we can help our family out. It's just beautiful!"

It is the second time in three weeks a Caboolture entry has won division one after a local couple won almost $800,000 in late April.
