    I sold a house to a couple who won lotto ( they paid $850,000 cash so not sure how much their total win was !)

    My cousin did, kinda. He won $250,00 about 25 years ago which was good coin then. Turned out him and his mate somehow counterfeited the ticket and he got caught, had to pay the money back, went bankrupt and spent 3 years in jail for fraud. Idiot.

    My stepbrother won $50 000 and did not spend it wisely lol...I think he gave about half to his girlfriend at the time who he'd only been seeing for a couple of months and split with not long after. And doesn't have anything to show for the rest as far as I'm aware.

    I've never known anyone to have a huge win. I'd love to win so I could buy my mum a brand new Hyundai i30

    Yep. It was a couple who were really struggling. They were living in a share house because they couldn't afford their own place, and they had a baby on the way. A week after the baby was born they won $5 million.

    Yep. My mum and her friend did (they buy them together). Not the jackpot or anything life changing but enough to be really excited about. My mum gave me $10 000 of her money which was great We used it to be really boring and pay off a debt.

    No one personally but when i was a kid a family in my (poor) neighbourhood had a pretty big lotto win. It was quite hot goss around the streets - they started wearing expensive tracksuits (seriously ) and bought lots of useless material things and the mother wasted the rest on her addictions. They were back to nothing soon enough.
