‘I burst into tears’: Lilydale mum discovers $1 million Wednesday Lotto win!
A mum from Lilydale confessed she ‘burst into tears’ when discovering she won $1 million in last night’s Wednesday Lotto draw.
The happy woman held one of the four division one winning entries in Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw 3855, drawn on Wednesday 27 March 2019. Each winning entry takes home the guaranteed division one prize of $1 million.
When we spoke to the over-the-moon winner today, she revealed she ‘didn’t sleep a wink’ last night after discovering her millionaire status.
“Oh my gosh! I am so excited! I am shaking,” she giggled.
“I just want to cry all of the time when I think I am now a millionaire!
“I found out last night after the draw. I checked the app and saw all the zeros!
“I thought ‘oh my god! No, this can’t be real?’. So I went and woke up my daughter and showed her my phone and asked her ‘Is this real? Please tell me this is real’.
“Then she looked at it and we both just burst into tears and hugged each other! We probably stood there crying and hugging for ages!
“Afterwards, the rest of my family came over and we kept hugging each other and laughing.
“I couldn’t sleep a wink last night. I kept wondering if it was real and thinking about what I am going to do with it.”
When we asked how the Yarra Valley woman planned to spend her win, she admitted she wanted to share her prize with those at the top of her Lotto List.
“I want to leave it for a few months so I have the time to really decide what I will do with it,” she said.
“Everything will stay the same until I work out what I want to do.
“I know I will definitely pay off the house, go on a holiday to the Great Barrier Reef and help out my kids.
“I just can’t believe it is real. You’ve changed my life!”
The winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased her 4-game QuickPick entry online at thelott.com – Australia’s official lotteries.
