The woman, from Adelaide, Australia, was left shocked when she checked her slip for the Keno Spot 9 jackpot draw last Saturday.

“I wasn’t having the best day, so I decided to put a ticket on and treat myself to a nail manicure.

“I thought I broke the lottery machine when I went to scan my ticket because it came up something I’ve never seen before – something out of the ordinary!
