Thursday 16 May, 2013 - A woman was stunned when she walked into her regular Tatts outlet this afternoon and was told she was the $1 million Wednesday Lotto winner they’d been looking for!
The Grandmother in her 60s visited Endeavour Lotto in Endeavour Hills Shopping Centre this afternoon where a staff member broke the news that she was a millionaire!
“When the girl from the counter checked my lotto ticket and said she needed to speak to me privately I thought, ‘God, what have I done wrong?’” the winner said.
“When she whispered that I’d won $1 million with my Wednesday Lotto entry I thought for sure she was joking!” she laughed.
“Six months ago I changed my regular lotto numbers to include birthdays of my children and grandchildren, and those are the numbers I won with last night.”
The winning woman was thrilled to start planning how to use the prize money.
“My husband and I will definitely take a holiday overseas,” the winner said.
“I’ll be able to retire early now. Oh, I have so much to think about!”
The woman purchased her winning 5-game marked Wednesday Lotto entry from Endeavour Lotto, Shop 53/54 in Endeavour Hills Shopping Centre in Endeavour Hills.
This is the second major lotto win Endeavour Lotto has sold in nine months, after selling a TattsLotto entry worth $1,052,631.58 in August last year.
The winner has chosen to remain anonymous.
There were two division one winning entries in last night’s Wednesday Lotto draw. Along with the Victorian entry, a million-dollar winning ticket was purchased in Western Australia.
The winning numbers in Wednesday Lotto draw 3243 on 15 May 2013 were 18, 8, 20, 22, 26 and 30 with the supplementary numbers 1 and 4.
