It may be Friday the 13th today but for some of our players, this week has brought some winning good fortune just in time for Christmas. Hi everyone. I’m Matt from The Lott and it’s been another week of surreal surprises and celebratory screams. Proving mums do know best, a Hobart woman is thanking her mum for getting her to check her Monday Lotto ticket – a ticket that had just won her $1 million. The winning Tasmanian woman has been playing the same special numbers for years – something that was well known to her nearest and dearest. So when her mum saw the numbers drawn she was quick to alert her daughter. Our new millionaire has declared that 2020 will now be a game-changer for her and her family thanks to the win Next year will also see new adventures for a Penrith couple who had one of the two Division 1 winning entries in last weekend’s Saturday Lotto draw. The happy Western Sydney woman asked her husband to pinch her to make sure she wasn’t dreaming when she checked her ticket. Their bank balance is about to balloon by more than $1.9 million and they’ve got a new caravan and the open roads in their sights. And Santa has also delivered an early treat to a young hospitality worker from Waverly who scratched one of the top prizes of $10,000 on his Instant Scratch-Its ticket. He received the winning ticket from a work colleague as part of a Secret Santa gift exchange. Someone has a new best friend at work I think. Have a winning weekend everyone!
