Million-dollar prediction comes true for East Melbourne grandmother
An East Melbourne grandmother was shaking and lost for words this morning when Tatts called to tell her she won $1 million in last night’s Wednesday Lotto — fulfilling a prediction she’d joked about with her husband.
“No! Really?” she asked in shock.
“I won a million dollars?!” “
I kept saying to my husband, ‘I’m going to win a million dollars.’ And, I have! I won a million dollars!”
“Wow! You’ve made my day! You’ve made my life!”
The shocked winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, bought her division one winning, 36-game, QuickPick entry in Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw 3671 from Croydon Central News & Lotto, Croydon Market, Kent Street, Croydon.
“I’ve been pretty lucky recently. I won $1,600 a few weeks ago, and I won $1,200 a couple of months ago.
“Now, I’ve won a million dollars!
“You just won’t believe how hard the past couple of years have been for me and my husband. This is amazing! It’s come at just the right time!
“We can now afford to retire!”
The giddy-with-delight grandmother also plans to take a well-deserved and long-anticipated holiday to visit family interstate.
Croydon Central News & Lotto owner Lien Nguyen said she was thrilled to have sold another division one winning ticket.
“We’re over the moon!” she said.
“It makes us happy knowing one of our customers has won, and that it’s such a life-changing amount.
“Congratulations to the winner! We’re so happy for you!”
This is the second division one winning Monday & Wednesday Lotto ticket sale for Croydon Central News & Lotto, with another of the store’s customers taking home a $1 million prize in January 2016.
Tatts has two things to celebrate today – the 45th birthday of TattsLotto and the fact that it sold the only division one winning ticket in last night’s Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw.
“How fortuitous! I’ve probably been buying TattsLotto tickets for 45 years – since they started!” said East Melbourne’s ecstatic winner.
The six winning numbers in Monday and Wednesday Lotto draw 3671 on Wednesday 21 June 2017 were 30, 40, 16, 28, 35 and 38. The supplementary numbers were 10 and 11.
Across Australia, it was the only division one winning entry in Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw 3671, which offers a guaranteed $1 million division one prize for up to four winners in every draw.
The Lott’s division one winning tally has now reached 392 so far this financial year, including 155 won by Tatts customers.
