After discovering she’d won $1 million in last night’s Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw, a Goulburn woman revealed her heart was racing, her stomach was in knots, and she couldn’t stop crying happy tears.

The Southern Tablelands resident held one of the two division one winning entries in Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw 4176 on Monday 25 April 2022 and took home $1 million.

This morning, we reached out to the winner, who relayed the moment she uncovered her life-changing win.

“I was at work, and my husband was too, and he had my Lotto ticket on him. I’d heard someone won division one from the area, so I texted him and asked him to check my ticket on The Lott app,” she said.

“A few moments later, I received a call from him, and the first thing he said was, ‘Hello, Miss lottery winner! How does it feel to be a millionaire?’.

“I was so shocked. I said to him, ‘No way! You’re kidding me!’. Once he convinced me it was real, I started crying, my heart was racing, and my stomach was in knots.

“Last night, I cried and cried and cried – all happy tears!

“These kinds of things don’t happen to us. It’s just incredible.

“I had a cup of tea to celebrate. But we will do something big once the money is in our account.

“This changes everything for us! It’ll allow us to relax and take it slow.

“We haven’t done much travel, so we will be doing that! We’re going to live our lives to the fullest.

“What a feeling! I can’t believe this has happened.”

Her winning entry was purchased at newsXpress Goulburn, Shop Sp017 Goulburn Plaza 217 Auburn Street, Goulburn.
