Shepparton woman becomes TattsLotto Megadraw midnight millionaire!

A woman from the city of Shepparton in the Goulburn Valley region of northern Victoria started her New Year with a $1.3 million bang, becoming a millionaire on New Year’s Eve in the TattsLotto Megadraw!

The delighted woman was none-the-wiser to her 2017 windfall this morning when she got a phone call from Tatts to deliver the news she’d become a midnight millionaire!

“Did I win something? Is this a joke? It’s not $12 is it? My blood pressure is going through the roof!” the woman exclaimed.

“My husband’s looking over at me now like I’m crazy! I’m all flustered!”

She then called out “Darl, I think we won something in TattsLotto!” before popping the phone call on speaker phone so he could hear the announcement.

“Oh my god! You’re not having us on? Thank you so much! We’re both crying! We’ve been through the mill!

“I didn’t even check my ticket last night or this morning, I just left it in my purse! I’ve been playing the same special numbers for almost 30 years. We’re so grateful!”
