They got to tell Scott that he was the winner of Draw 166 and that he had won $600,000 1st Prize, plus a $55,000 Book Buyers Prize. Scott and his wife support The Deaf Lottery as VIP members for over 2 years. He decided to take the Mortgage Buster Option for their prize.

Lottery 167 Winner – Mortgage Buster Prize Choice – Total Prize: $635,000
The thought of winning a lottery prize seemed like it could never happen to Abby*. Still, she has been a The Deaf Lottery VIP supporter since 2015. “A good friend of ours had been supporting the Deaf Lottery for years. Since the birth of their first son who was born profoundly Deaf. We were lucky enough to see firsthand the amazing work the Deaf Lottery does for the Deaf community. We couldn’t be happier to support such a great cause.” When Abby* received the phone call that she had won the $600,000 Lifestyle Lottery along with the additional $35,000 Book Buyer Prize, Abby was in shock. When asked how she would spend her $635,000 winnings, she responded with “An Australian adventure”.
Lottery 168 Winner – Mortgage Buster Prize Choice – Total Prize: $$650,000
Jenn* received the ultimate Christmas gift- a call from The Deaf Lottery manager advising her that she had won the $650,000 Christmas Lottery and the additional $35,000 Book Buyer Prize. When she was asked what she was going to do with her $685,000 winnings, her response was simple.
“My husband and I own a farm in rural Queensland. We’re about six hours away from our home. Between supply runs and visiting my family who live on the coast, I can drive up to 21 hours a week. It just makes sense to invest our winnings in a reliable new car.”
