A SHOPPER left a supermarket £50,000 richer after receiving a call from the freezer section.
The lucky woman from Coffs Harbour, Australia was deciding what to eat for dinner when she was told she had won big.
She was browsing a Woolworths when she received a call saying she had won first prize in the Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot drawing.
The stunned customer quickly paid for her items and rushed home to celebrate.
She told The Lott: “We’ve had such a **t year so this is really life changing.
“I’m standing in the middle of an aisle at Woolworth’s, trying to figure out what to buy for dinner.
“But instead I’ll pay for my groceries and rush home.”
The unnamed winner said she and her husband would use the extra money over the festive period, reports news.com.au.
She added: “We are overjoyed.
“I haven’t really had much time to think about what we’re going to do with the prize, but I know it will come in handy this Christmas.”
Her victory on November 29 comes after a lottery winner who has been using the same five numbers for years finally saw his perseverance pay off after hitting a huge jackpot.

“It was more shocking than the first win. I told my wife and she was very happy!”
