“I checked my ticket yesterday online. I scanned my ticket and I thought ‘Gosh that line has four numbers’ and then I saw six numbers. Then I thought ‘Oh I’ve got the wrong week’. But then I realised I really had won!
“It left me a bit breathless! It’s amazing. You’ve made my life!”
The regular Lotto player revealed she had marked her winning entry using special numbers, including family birthdates.
She says she now plans on sharing some of her windfall with them.
“I’ve been thinking about what we might do and how it will benefit the family,” the woman said.
“But we haven’t celebrated just yet. I was waiting to get confirmation that it was true!”
The winning marked 12-game entry was purchased at Ormeau Newsagency, Shop 11, Ormeau Centre, Lot 3, Vaughan Drive, Ormeau.
