Benalla woman overwhelmed by “unbelievable” $1 million TattsLotto win
A Benalla woman has confessed to feeling ‘completely overwhelmed’ by the news she is now a millionaire after scoring division one in the weekend’s TattsLotto draw.
The High Country local held one of the four division one winning entries across Australia in TattsLotto draw 4007, drawn Saturday 14 December 2019. Each entry won a division one prize of $1,048,502.09.
Speaking with us this morning to confirm the win, the happy woman revealed she was still in shock.
“It’s unbelievable! That’s great! You have no idea how much this means to me!” she exclaimed.
“Can you say how much I’ve won again? Over $1 million? I can’t believe I am a millionaire.
“My goodness me! It’s just unbelievable.
“I reckon I’ve been playing for about 50 years. I grab a QuickPick every week and I always thought I’d win one day.
“I checked my numbers online on Sunday night and thought I only had five numbers. I’m so glad I’ve got all six. It’s amazing!”
When asked how she planned to enjoy her life as a newly-minted millionaire she confessed she would have to wait and see.
“It’s so close to Christmas and there is so much going on, I might just have to wait until the new year to celebrate and think about how I am going to use it,” she laughed.
“I’ll get some advice before I do anything because I want it to last a long time.
“It has come at a great time and it will help me immensely.”
The woman purchased her winning 24-game QuickPick entry at Benalla Rose City Lotto, 49 Bridge Street, Benalla. Benalla Rose City Lotto owner, Leon Lim said there was a lot of excitement in store after the win.
“What a surprise for our customer! Such fantastic timing just before Christmas!” he exclaimed.
“There will be some excitement in our small town this week.
“We’ve owned the outlet since 2014 and we are super happy to have sold multiple division one prizes in our time.
“We sold two division one winning entries within seven months of each other in 2017, so I hope history repeats itself and we sell a second division one winning entry again soon!
“We wish the customer the very best and hope they enjoy their prize!”
