The couple learnt of their jackpot win after a visit to the shops to buy an umbrella, which they couldn’t really afford.

“With bad weather due on the weekend we needed an umbrella but we’d pretty much spent our budget for the week,” the woman said.

“It was after that I checked my ticket. I was crying when I found out – it just felt so surreal.”

Struggling to make their next mortgage repayment, she said they were strapped for cash as their small business had not done well for the past few years, but “that’s all about to change now”.

The family plans to celebrate with a holiday and even a top-of-the-range barbie.

“What we thought was unrealistic is now a reality,” she said.

“We’re going to spoil our parents, go on a family cruise, go fishing more, deck out our house and even buy a top-of-the-range barbeque.”

The winning ticket was sold by The Lucky Charm Baldivis, and is WA’s second first prize winner in just three nights following Sunday’s win by customers of The Lucky Charm in Midland, who celebrated with a pie and pint.

Tuesday’s Oz Lotto has jackpotted to $40 million, equalling the largest offer this year, with ticket sales set to skyrocket according to Lotterywest.

“We’re getting ready for a busy few days, and during our busiest hour on jackpot day we estimate about 400 tickets to be churning out of lottery terminals each minute,” Lotterywest spokesperson Pina Compagnone said.  Follow WAtoday on Twitter
