A Broadmeadows woman was delighted to discover a phone call she initially thought was about bad news, was instead about her “wonderful” $1.25 million windfall in the recent TattsLotto draw.

The Victorian player held one of the eight division one winning entries in TattsLotto draw 4377, drawn Saturday 1 July 2023 and takes home a total division one prize of $1,250,000.00.

The gleeful woman discovered her newfound fortune on Sunday morning when her husband broke the news to her over the phone.

“Oh, it’s amazing!” she exclaimed when speaking with us this morning.

“I was out and about, and I received a phone call from my husband.

“Before I could even say anything to him, he said, ‘I’m shaking! I’m shaking!’.

“I responded with, ‘What’s wrong with you? Are you sick?’.

“My mind immediately thought something was wrong.

“Then he said, ‘You’ve won TattsLotto! You’ve won $1.25 million!’.

“I thought he was joking, and I didn’t believe it. I usually don’t win anything! I just kept saying, ‘Don’t be silly!’.

“I’ve been playing for a very long time. I just don’t know how we got so lucky.

“It didn’t really hit home until I spoke to you.

“Thank you so much.”

When asked how she planned to enjoy her million-dollar bounty, the winning woman shared a portion of it would go into the bank for a rainy day and the rest to her nearest and dearest.

“I’ll bank some of it. Then I’ll give some to my family,” she revealed.

“It’s wonderful.”

Her winning marked 18-game entry was purchased at Broadmeadows Lucky Lotto, Shop K16, Broadmeadows Town Centre, 1099 – 1169 Pascoe Vale Road, Broadmeadows.

Broadmeadows Lucky Lotto owner Hasan Chandrakirana said he was super excited to play a part in making another customer’s dream come true.

“We’re over the moon! It’s always exciting knowing we’ve changed someone’s life with a single ticket,” he said.

“When I first discovered we’d sold a division one winning entry in the weekend’s TattsLotto draw, I said to myself, ‘Wow! We did it again!’.

“It’s always important to recognize the entire Broadmeadows Lucky Lotto team who make this possible for our customers, and to celebrate the team's efforts that contributed to this milestone.

“Our customers will be in for a pleasant surprise when they heard we’ve sold another division one winning entry and they’ll probably be dreaming of becoming the next lucky winner!
