A Winston Hill woman’s Sunday was happily interrupted by the revelation she won division one in the weekend’s Saturday Lotto draw.
“Oh my gosh! Thank you!” the winner exclaimed when her prize was confirmed.
“I had a message and I thought it was scam. But then I thought I’d check my Saturday Lotto ticket.
‘I saw $860,000 and thought, ‘this can’t be right!’.
“I got my partner to check my ticket. I said, ‘Can you look at this? Is this right?’.
“I’m still not sure. You might have to pinch me!
“This was just a QuickPick. Every time I autoselect I look at the numbers and see if I like the combination. I liked this combination of numbers. I don’t know what I was thinking. I just thought, ’let’s see what happens’.
“This will really help us and help get us into our first home.
“I’m just going to stare at these numbers for a long time!”
The woman purchased her winning eight-game QuickPick entry on The Lott website – the official home of Australia’s lotteries
