A Sydney woman says she is so excited she “feels sick” since discovering she is now a multimillionaire after deciding to check a forgotten lottery ticket stuck to her fridge door.
The Leppington mum was heading to the shops when she saw a Saturday Lotto ticket that had been hanging on the fridge for “a while”.

Little did she know, it was one of the 15 division one winning entries in Saturday Lotto draw 4375, drawn on June 24. Each entry took home $2 million.
“When they scanned it, they just said I needed to call The Lott as soon as possible,” she said.

She could not believe her luck when she received the life-changing news.
“I haven’t stopped sweating. I’m just going around my house thinking, ‘what do I do, what do I do’,” she said.
“I don’t know what to do. I’m dying right now. I’m just so excited. I feel sick.
“This ticket has been on our fridge the whole time!”
The doting mother said the money was “such a relief” for her family and meant she could pay off her mortgage and focus on setting her children up for success.
“I just want our children to grow up safe and happy and this just puts everything into perspective,” she said.
“For us, being able to pay off the mortgage is huge … It would have taken us such a long time.”
The winner said she bought the ticket at her local Leppington Newsagency, saying she always knew one day she’d strike gold.
“I love this little newsagency. Every time I shop there, I just kept thinking, ‘you’re going to make me a winner’,” she said.
“And they have, I can’t believe it.”
