Mum’s life changed forever
The Deaf Lottery 190 Winning Ticket: 1302676
A mother from Maleny, QLD, is speechless after winning $830,000 in the Deaf Lottery draw 190. As a contract administrator and mum of two, the winner is short of time and patience.

Even more, she won a $30,000 bonus gold bullion as a prize for purchasing a $100 VIP ticket book.
She shared how much the prize means, particularly for her family. With rising rent prices and children looking at cars, she may look into the Mortgage Buster Lifestyle prize option. However, escaping the rental market with the Investment Lifestyle package is certainly another exciting option!
