A sceptical Geelong lotto-winner couldn’t believe her luck when an official phoned her to say she had won $549,920 on Monday morning.
The woman suspected an ulterior motive during the call and only after checking her ticket did she accept the life-changing news from the official.
The disbelieving winner won a division one prize of $496,656 as well as addition divisional prizes totalling, $549,920.
Tattslotto spokesperson Bronnie Spencer said some winners had a hard time accepting they have won the jackpot.“Most of the time there’s a bit of disbelief. People can’t believe it’s happened to them and they are trying to process it.
“We often reassure these winners that the ticket they are holding is the winning ticket and their dream has come true.”
The woman declined to disclose how she would spend the windfall and chose to celebrate her win in private.
Ben Kelberg, owner of the Bellarine Village Lotto, said that the team were extremely excited to have sold their third division one prize this year.
“We are extremely happy it has been sold to a local. We wish the winner all the best with their prize.”
