Mater Prize Home lottery No. 278 winner, Jennifer Ninyette, was at work when she received an exciting phone call. She got some unexpected news that she had won a luxury, waterfront prize home in Hope Island on the Gold Coast.

Despite being a long-term Mater Prize Home VIP supporter since the year 2007, winning the modern five bedroom home worth a whopping $1.8 million still came as a shock.

“When I first received the call I thought, is this a joke? I feel like I’m being pranked? Is this serious,” said Jennifer.

“I get the brochures (each month), and I normally look at them and go, oh that would be nice…I don’t even remember seeing this one, which is funny”.

The reality of her life-changing win was still continuing to sink in the day she received the keys. Click on the video link below to watch Jennifer’s first reactions, walking through the door of her brand new prize home for the very first time…

Jennifer works in local government as a planning officer and with some long service leave coming up she’s now got the perfect place in mind for a holiday.
