The winner eventually celebrated with a pub meal, choosing to keep the party relatively low-key.
“Crayfish or lobster wasn’t on the menu, so I settled for crab linguine,” she joked.
She plans to split her winnings — which have boosted her bank account by $179,000 — with her children and grandchildren.
The System 10 ticket was bought from Spearwood Heights Newsagency.
The win came a week after 50 hospital workers at Fiona Stanley Hospital claimed a huge share of a $20 million Lotto super draw.
