Tassie Women Becomes a Millionaire in TattsLotto
Perseverance paid off for a Tasmanian woman from New Norfolk when her usual numbers in the TattsLotto paid off this month and made her a millionaire.
The woman, who has chosen to remain anonymous, won $1 million in the Monday draw last week off a System 7 market ticket she bought from the New Norfolk Pharmacy. She had been using family birthdays to select her numbers for the few years she had been playing the Lotto and this entry was no different.
“I’m so excited! I’m bursting with excitement! I started checking my numbers and was just sitting there staring and then starting thinking ‘no, there’s something wrong here’,” she said. “We’ve been waiting to speak to Tatts this morning as we just couldn’t convince ourselves that this was true.”
The woman from New Norfolk was one of two Division One winners on the Monday draw, with the other winning ticket bought in New South Wales.
When asked how she plans to spend her winnings, she replied: “We’re going to figure it all out before we do anything. We’ve got people we want to help, but we want to get it right.”
At the same time as celebrating this lucky player’s win, TattsLotto is searching for the winner of the Set for Life draw on Tuesday, February 21. The player bought their winning ticket in Kogarah in Sydney, but has not claimed their winnings of $20,000 per month for twenty years.
“The possibilities of what you could do each month for the next 20 years are endless!” said Matt Hart, Set for Life spokesperson. “Imagine the things you could do and the places you could go if you had the opportunity to plot out on your calendar what you planned to do with your $20,000 windfall each month!”
