‘It’s hard to process’ declares Clarence region woman after TattsLotto win
A woman from the Clarence region of Tasmania is still in shock this morning after discovering she won a division one prize worth over $446,000 in Saturday’s TattsLotto draw.
The thrilled winner held one of the nine division one winning entries nationally in TattsLotto draw 3969, drawn Saturday 3 August 2019. Each entry took home a division one prize of $446,898.09.
Sharing her joy with us this morning, the overjoyed woman recounted how she discovered her life-changing news.
“I’m still in shock or something! It’s hard to process!” she declared.
“I get up every Sunday morning and check my entries and did the same this weekend.
“I checked them quickly and didn’t think I had won anything. In fact I even told my husband that we didn’t win.
“Then later I got an email saying I had won something and I was wondering if it was real.
“That’s when I checked it again and realised I had all of the numbers and I had won division one.
“I turned my husband and said ‘I guess today is going to be a good day!’.”
When asked how she planned to enjoy her surprise windfall, the shocked, but happy winner revealed she had to let the news sink in.
“I’ll pay off our loan and then I’ll just have to wait and let it all sink in,” she explained.
“I’m not sure I’m thinking clearly right now the news came so out of the blue!
“It’s difficult to process and I’m feeling a range of emotions.
“But shocked is the biggest!
“I’m sure the win will allow us to relax in our retirement.”
The winner also admitted the first thing she would do was plan how to celebrate the news.
“I’m not sure how we will celebrate just yet as it is only early in the day so too early to have some champagne,” she laughed.
“I’m sure we will do something later tonight to toast the win!”
The winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased her 18-game QuickPick entry online at thelott.com – Australia’s official lotteries.
