A Knoxfield woman believes the ‘tough times’ are finally behind her after welcoming a $2.8 million division one win from the weekend’s TattsLotto draw.

There were seven division one winning entries across Australia in TattsLotto draw 4271 on Saturday, 25 June 2022. Each entry scored a division one prize of $2,857,142.86.

This morning, we reached out to the Melburnian, who was getting ready for work and was completely oblivious to the mind-blowing news.

“Oh my god! Oh my god! I want to scream; I want to shout!” she cheered.

“Ahh, I can’t grasp this news. I’m speechless!

“I thought it was a hoax when you initially called. I thought to myself, ‘Who is playing mind games with me on a Monday morning!’. I hoped it was real.

“My heart is going a thousand miles an hour – I’m getting goosebumps. It’s such a beautiful feeling!

“I can’t even express how hard the past year or so has been for my family. We’ve had so many people in our family fall ill, and this has just changed my whole world.

“Covid had put a spanner in the works, and it’s been so hard for everyone.”

With a multi-million-dollar windfall heading her way, the happy Victorian had a couple of ideas in mind.

“I’ve always worried about paying off the mortgage, and having to look after a family member with a sickness, it’s been hard. But now, I can pay off my house mortgage entirely!” she shared.

“I can cut back on my work hours, as it’s getting too hard to work full-time and look after someone. I can’t even take today off to celebrate, but that’s okay!

“I also need to upgrade the car – I’d love a little SUV in my garage!

“My husband has always wanted to see the V8 Supercars Championship in person, and we’ve been meaning to visit our family overseas since Covid. We can do all of this now!

“I’m going to invite my entire family over later this week and put on a beautiful spread to celebrate.

“From the bottom of my heart, thank you!”
