A Sydney mother won the Saturday Lotto after she changed her numbers for the first time in more than half a decade.

The woman was one of two winners who took home $2,558,804.44.

In a statement, she said “I play Saturday Lotto every week and I’ve been playing the same numbers for six years,” she said.

“But you wouldn’t believe it, it was a week ago when I decided to change the numbers I’ve been playing for all these years and that’s what won me division one.”

The woman said the first thing that came to mind was ‘no more renting.’’

“We’re going to buy a big house with a granny flat so all our family can come and stay. We’d also love a new car and we’ll be helping out our children.”

The winning numbers for the draw were 43, 2, 16, 9, 7 and 33 while the supplementary numbers were 20 and 34.
