A mom got the surprise of a lifetime when she thought she won $4,000 in the lottery.
The mother-of-two decided to try her chance at Lucky Dip online and when she matched five balls and the bonus ball she thought he was taking home $4,000 just in time for the holidays.
But the 28-year-old was wrong.
“I always play Lotto online and saw the big Lotto rollover so decided to have a go. On Wednesday night, I was on my way to bed and thought I’d look at my account to see if I’d won anything,” she said.
When she checked her numbers, Jenn Burston showed her husband Ian their winning hand.
“I logged in on my phone and it said I was a winner – my numbers were circled. I thought hang on a minute, I think I’ve won £3,000 and took my phone to go and show my husband,” she said.
The pair logged onto to their tablet computer with a bigger screen and found out that Jen had read the numbers wrong.
