A woman from Birkdale is the second winner from the Redlands to win $1 million in the Lotto

Second Redlands millionaire crowned this week

IT has been a lucky week in the Redlands as a second millionaire cashed in on their lottery winnings.

A Birkdale woman won $1 million in Monday's Gold Lotto draw, days after a Mount Cotton father claimed $1,536,277 on Saturday.

The woman held the only division one winning entry across Australia. The ticket was purchased at Birkdale Newsagency where four previous winning tickets had been sold.

When a Lotto official called to confirm her win, the shocked woman thought she was dreaming.

"I knew they were my numbers because I've been marking them on my entries for so long, probably for more than a decade.

"The numbers came to me in a dream about 15 years ago, I literally saw them appear one by one, and I've been playing them in that exact order ever since. The numbers have always been good to me, I've always won little amounts over the years but now this. It's amazing," she said.

The new millionaire said she would be changing her retirement plans.

"I've always wanted to be in a position where I can help my family, and now I am. I'll be using this to retire a little earlier than I thought I could.

"I'll be going on plenty of holidays, that's for sure."

The winning ticket was purchased at the news agency at the Birkdale Fair Shopping Centre.

Owner Adrian Johal said it was the fifth division one winning entry his outlet had sold.

"It's unbelievable to sell another winning entry. Congratulations to her. It's fantastic news for both our latest winner and our local community," he said.
