“I had a little cry”: Box Hill woman overcome by surprise TattsLotto fortune
While many were looking for chocolate eggs on Easter Sunday, a Box Hill woman was gazing with disbelief at her TattsLotto entry, struggling to believe she was a division one winner.
The Victorian held one of the nine division one winning entries in TattsLotto draw 4353, drawn Saturday 8 April 2023. Each division one winning entry scored $582,463.60.
“I woke up this morning and thought I’d check my TattsLotto ticket,” the woman explained when we called to confirm her win on Easter Sunday.
“At first, I thought I’d won over $500, but then I wiped my eyes as I was still sleepy and saw it was a lot more.
“I can’t believe it.
“I had a little cry.
“I’ve been playing for a long time. It’s just a hobby of mine, but at the back of my mind, I’ve always thought I’d win it one day. And my numbers have finally come out!
“Some of the numbers I’ve been using are special, but for others, I just trusted my instinct and picked them.
“It’s come at the right time. Now I can pay off the house and my family will be set. I might even buy a new car.
“I’m so happy about it. I keep checking the ticket with my family. This is a great gift.”
Her winning marked System 7 entry was purchased online at thelott.com – the official home of Australia’s lotteries.
