“Bullsh*t!”: Devonport woman refuses to believe $2 million TattsLotto win
A Devonport woman has declared she simply will not believe she holds a division one winning TattsLotto entry worth $2 million, until she sees the money in her bank account.
The disbelieving winner held one of the 10 division one winning entries nationally in TattsLotto draw 4071, drawn Saturday 25 July 2020. Each entry took home a division one prize of $2 million.
When we spoke to the woman this morning, she was completely blindsided by the life-changing news.
“Bullsh*t! You’re joking! I don’t believe you!” she exclaimed.
“Wow! It’s terrific news if it’s true.
“My partner is right here next to me, and he doesn’t believe it either.
“I buy a QuickPick entry every week, but I’ve never won anything like this before.
“Hell no, this can’t be true!”
When asked how she planned to enjoy life as a multi-millionaire, the shocked winner declared she wouldn’t decide until it hit her bank account.
“I still don’t believe it! I can’t imagine spending it until I have it!” she laughed.
“We can’t do much at the moment, so I think I’ll leave it in the bank until things ease up and we can enjoy it.
“I just need to check this ticket myself. I’m still in my pyjamas, but the first thing I’m going to do is have a shower and visit the outlet so they can tell me I’m a winner themselves!”
The shocked woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased her winning entry at Waterfront News & Lotto, 15 Best Street, Devonport.
Waterfront News & Lotto owner Rod Hurley said he was very excited to discover his outlet had sold a division one winning entry.
“Hearing that one of our customers had won division one put a smile on the faces of the entire Waterfront News & Lotto team!” he exclaimed.
“Being able to play a part in changing someone’s life is pretty exciting!
“We’ll definitely be toasting to the winner, and if we can find out which of our team member sold the winning ticket, we’ll give them a special present.
“We’ve already had plenty of congratulations from our customers, both instore and on our social media pages. Our Facebook page lit up as soon as I posted the news.
“This is the first time we’ve ever sold a division one winning entry since we took ownership of the store in October 2018.
“We want to send our winner a huge, huge congratulations and best wishes for the future.
“We’re really chuffed to have been able to play a part in this life-changing event. The whole team hopes our winner enjoys her fantastic win!
“As the saying goes, ‘you’ve got to be in it to win it’. It’s wonderful to be able to help someone realise their dreams.”
