Hastings nomadic family to embark on Aussie adventure with $2.8 million TattsLotto win!

“I normally check my ticket on The Lott app first thing on a Sunday morning, and that’s exactly what I did yesterday,” she cried happily as she retold the story of how she discovered her win.
“When I saw that I had a few numbers, I thought, ‘oh my god!’, and then I noticed I had all of the winning numbers, and I could not believe it.
“I just kept thinking, ‘I am dreaming! No, this must be a dream!’.
“I cried a lot! There were so many tears. I was shaking then, and I am still shaking now.
“I had to go for a walk to try and calm down and to let the news sink in. I still need to absorb it! It’s crazy!
“Ahhh! I can’t believe I am a multi-millionaire and now I’m crying again. I’m so sorry!
“This is just so insane. It’s overwhelming. I need to sit down.
“I’ve dreamt about this moment so many times, but I never in a million years thought this would happen to me.
“I am still in shock now! It’s absolutely life-changing.”
When asked how she planned to enjoy her multi-million-dollar prize, the emotional woman said it was a dream come true.
“I have been renting my whole life, so I want to buy a house — my dream house — on some land that I’ve been eyeing off for years and years!” she explained.
“I’d also love to buy a nice caravan and a car to tow it and travel around Australia with my family.
“That’s a big dream of mine! All I want to do is hit the road and travel!”
