    My uncle won 1 million dollars about 20 years ago on the first Wednesday night lotto draw they introduced.

    Also my husband won $25 000 on a instant scratch it on his 21st birthday ( before I met him) as most do he received some scratchies in a card from his grandmother and won.

    Other than that maybe I have personally won max $35 on a lotto ticket.

    I know someone who won $2 million early this year. And someone else who won in the 1970s.

    One of my best friends when I was a kid - her parents won a substantial amount.

    My uncle has won $20K+ on scratchies, twice.

    My mum won $6K once.

    Most I've ever won is about $50. Buy a couple of tickets a year in the hope of winning big. I can dream 😛

    Most I've won is $30-$40. Usually enough to cover the cost of the lotto ticket haha. My sisters in-laws won $100k+ on lotto 8-9yrs ago. Apart from that, no one I know has won anything significant.
