Imagine winning your choice of incredible $800,000 prize. What would you do? How would you spend it? To give you some inspiration, we’ve pulled together some recent stories of how lucky Deaf Lottery winners celebrate!
Peace of mind for retired winners
The Deaf Lottery 186 Winning Ticket: 0380492
A retired couple from Victoria Park, WA are celebrating winning $800,000 in the Deaf Lottery draw 186. Officials from Deaf Services contacted the lucky supporter to tell him the good news. As many would, the winner initially thought it was a hoax call and asked to put his wife on the line instead.
His wife explained that the winner was hard of hearing, and that his brother is Deaf, as was his father. They are loyal supporters of the Deaf Lottery and have been purchasing tickets since 2009. She explained that they continue to support the cause to help people like her husband and his brother.
The win brings peace of mind for the recently retired winner. The couple look forward to sharing some champagne to celebrate and taking time to decide on how they plan to spend the windfall. They hope to visit family, help their children out financially, and take a leisurely trip in their brand new car!
“A few people have said, ‘how did you win that much money?’ I say to them that there’s one trick to it: buy some tickets!”

The Deaf Lottery 185 Winning Ticket: 1447114
The winner of the Deaf Lottery draw 185 was speechless after discovering he had won a supersized $850,000 first prize. Even more, he is also the winner of $20,000 in gold bullion from buying a $50 book of tickets.
As a health worker, it has certainly been a difficult year for the Wagga Wagga man. With the rest of his family in Syndey, the news of his windfall has made things easier. He shared how his mother had worked as a carer at the Royal Institute of Deaf and Blind Children. However, it was a friend sharing a post on Facebook that led him to support the Deaf Lottery since April 2020.
While the winner is looking to keep the news to just his immediate family, he is looking at how he might use the prize.
“I’ve been looking to get into the housing market and this is certainly a great way to do it! This is just so fantastic.”

The Deaf Lottery 184 Winning Ticket: 1400969
A Forest Lake man is in disbelief after the Deaf Lottery officials called to let him know he was the winner of draw 184. With a mega $850,000 first prize, plus $20,000 in gold bullion from being a VIP member, the winner described the news as, ‘an enormous pleasure’!
The humble man has been a supporter of the cause and was surprised to learn his support led to him winning an enormous amount. He has worked for a medical supplies company, though shared his connection with the Deaf community extends over 20 years to his days as a nurse. Incredibly, he learned some sign language to communicate with a client who was Deaf.
While he still needs some time to decide on how to spend his prize, the winner had some thoughts in mind!
“My wife and I have been trying to get finance for some home renovations, but the bank just knocked us back. We’re now going to pay off our mortgage and then tell the bank where to go!”
For your chance to win like these supporters, make sure you get your ticket in the next Deaf Lottery Australia draw. Best of luck!
