The 25-year-old Joanne Zhu has won million dollars for participation in the AU$1 lottery.


The money for it was donated by a group of companies and businessmen who founded the Million Dollar Vax Alliance. 

The aim of this was to motivate more Australians to get vaccinated.

Nearly 3 million people participated in the lottery but there was only one winner.

Zhu was close to missing on the lottery win as when she was called to be informed about the good news she initially didn’t respond as she was at work.

"Then I called them back and she said: "Oh, you won a million dollars! You're the only one in Australia'," she told the press.

When asked how she will spend the money the woman said that she wants to spend Chinese New Year with her family in a five star hotel.

"I want to fly my family out from China first class and put them up in a five star hotel for Chinese New Year if the borders are open.”

Most of her money will be invested, so her assets will keep growing over time.

"I will buy presents for my family and invest the rest of the money so I can make more money in the future and to help people if they need help."

The lottery has motivated many Australians to get jabbed as over 80% of Australians above the age of 16 are vaccinated.
