Million-dollar news ‘hard to comprehend’ for TattsLotto winner
Ticket bought in Traralgon
A day after learning she is $1 million richer, a Victorian woman remains in shock – the reality of her million-dollar windfall still sinking in.
“I got an email on Sunday morning saying ‘congratulations on your win’, but it didn’t say how much the prize was, which was strange,” she explained.
“It wasn’t until I read it a second time that I realised it said I’d won a ‘significant’ amount and needed to contact Tatts to confirm the prize.
“I went and had a look online to see what the prizes were and thought I’d won maybe $800 or $7,000 – I didn’t think it was possible I had won $1 million.
“When I finally checked my ticket, I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. I still can’t!”
The Victorian woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, held one of the four division one winning entries nationally in TattsLotto draw 3849 on Saturday 9 June 2018. Each entry took home a division one prize of $1,001,158.26.
She purchased her division one winning 12-game marked entry at Traralgon Newsagency & Lotto, 51-53 Franklin Street, Traralgon.
