"You're joking! I can't believe it!"
Wednesday 13th of November was a day that caught Maria Kulikova’s by complete surprise.
After holidaying in Australia with her sister in May last year, Maria was quite taken by the scenic landscape, beautiful sunny weather, and property prizes offered by the Art Union.
Dreaming of the chance to win, Maria promptly took the opportunity online and signed up as a $100 VIP Member. She couldn’t have imagined that a decision made on holidays would have led to a $2.4 million win…
Her dreams quickly turned to reality as her ticket no.165,825 was drawn as the first prize winner of Draw 370. Winning an entire property portfolio with three apartments, plus $200,000 gold!
"Just give me a second. Are you sure I have won three apartments?! Oh, my goodness!" she exclaimed. Thanks to her support of the veteran community, Maria now has the option to return as a millionaire, with three inner-city apartments in Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane.
