According to the Lott the lucky winner thought she had won just $107,000 and was convinced it was a trick when told the actual amount of $107,575,649.08 which is the largest individual lottery prize ever handed out in Australia.

"Is this actually real? I don't believe it. I don't believe it. Is this a trick?" she said.

When asked how she planned to celebrate the prize, the winner said she wouldn't be retiring and plans to share some with her family and organise travel plans.
