Million Dollar Winner

Million Dollar Winner

Slades Newsagency

A Hamilton woman will take some time to assess her future and is contemplating the idea of retirement years earlier than she ever thought possible, after scoring more than $1.6 million in the weekend’s TattsLotto Superdraw.

One of 12 division one winners from Saturday night’s draw, the anonymous new millionaire was shocked to learn about her fortune when called by Tatts this morning.

“Oh thank you!” she said after a short moment of shock.

“Wow. I had no idea. You’ve really stumped me. I have no idea what to say … I can’t believe this!

“Thank goodness I’m not at work at the moment, there’s no way I’d be able to concentrate.

“I’ve played for so long but I never thought this would happen to me.”

When asked how she planned to enjoy her life-changing windfall, the overwhelmed winner said she would be speeding up her retirement plans.

“I didn’t think I could start thinking about retirement for a while yet,” she said.

“But this certainly means I can retire much sooner than I’d thought and have the best retirement you could imagine.”

Her winning 50-game QuickPick entry was purchased at Slade’s Hamilton Newsagency & Lotto in Hamilton.

Owner Chris Slade said it was wonderful to hear she had sold a division one winning entry.

“What exciting news to wake up to the morning after the Superdraw,” she said.

“We will certainly be letting all our customers know about this incredible news!

“It’s been almost five years since we last sold a division one winning entry and we’re sure our customers will be a little envious of this winner but of course very happy for them.

“Congratulations to our winner! We hope this changes her life and she really enjoys it.”

The winning numbers were 12, 21, 10, 2, 1 and 42, while the supplementary numbers were 13 and 40.

Hamilton has now had 17 division one winners out of the same store in 21 years.
