Stawell woman showered with $580,000 TattsLotto win
A Stawell woman’s morning shower has been interrupted in the best way imaginable – by the revelation she scored $580,000 in the weekend’s TattsLotto draw.
The Wimmera resident held one of the nine division one winning entries in TattsLotto draw 4273 on Saturday 2 July 2022 and takes home $580,525.35.
“Oh wow, that’s lovely!” she rejoiced.
“I was coming out of the shower, and all I heard was my husband say, ‘Are you joking? Is this a joke?’. I wasn’t sure what who he was talking to, so I ran out of the shower to find out.
“I’ve now come out and you’re telling me I’ve won $580,000?! What a wonderful way to start my Monday morning!
“My husband and I have played these lottery numbers for a long time now, so it feels so surreal to have won division one.
“I’ll have to make a few phone calls this morning – I’m in shock!
“Our main priority is to help our family, especially our adult children.
“We will eventually enjoy a trip around Australia in a caravan. It’s something we’ve been looking forward to for a while but haven’t had the chance to do.
“It will take a while to sink in!”
Her winning marked 12-game entry was purchased at Stawell Lotto, 105 Main Street, Stawell.
Stawell Lotto owner Samantha Russell said she couldn’t be happier to see a local customer win division one.
“This is such wonderful news for the Wimmera community, and we’re so excited for the winner!” she exclaimed.
“We took over ownership of the outlet only a month ago, so this is our first division one winning entry – it’s the first to many more!
“Congratulations to the winner and we wish her all the best with her exciting bounty.”
