A grandmother from the New South Wales Central Tablelands region declared her day was suddenly brighter after discovering her entry in the weekend’s Saturday Lotto draw had won a first division prize of $521,827.54!

The overwhelmed winner who purchased her winning entry online via thelott.com was more than a little surprised when she got her dream-come-true phone call from NSW Lotteries.

“Are you serious? I’m half a million dollars richer!” the winner exclaimed.

“You've just brightened my day! Just hang on I’ve got to tell my husband. We just won $521,000! “

I’m looking at my Saturday Lotto entry on my computer right now. Wow I’ve never seen six numbers circled before – I’m used to seeing three or four!

“That's fantastic! I don’t win anything – I suppose I’m going to have to stop saying that now!

“I really don’t know what I do with my windfall but I might do something special for myself!”

The winner has chosen to remain anonymous.

The division one winning 6-game marked entry was purchased online via thelott.com.
