A woman from the Australian island state of Tasmania has revealed that she’s in the market for a new home after she won $243,000 on the Super 66 lottery game.
The lucky woman was the only division one ticket holder after the Super 66 drawing on Saturday, November 3rd and therefore won the entire top prize of $243,505.90. The winner told lottery officials that she was thrilled but in shock as she had checked her winning tickets just moments before she received a call with the good news. Recently we told you about a 22 strong syndicate from Western Australia who shared a $10 million Oz Lotto jackpot and said that their win felt like a dream.
“I’m so excited I feel sick!” the winner exclaimed, before thanking lottery officials for her life-changing prize. “I’ve been playing Super 66 every week for a few years now. I can’t believe it!” A National Lottery scratch card winner from Wales said that he felt sick when finding out about his £1 million win.
The regular lottery player said that her win had come at the perfect time for her, and when asked by lottery officials how she’d spend her Super 66 prize money, she said that she instantly knew exactly what to do with it. “I’m going to buy a house!” she declared. A NZ Lotto winner from Auckland was planning to buy a house after he won $666,666, saying “homeowner has a great ring to it,” while a Lotto 649 winner from British Columbia in Canada was going to build his own home after taking home $500,000.
The anonymous Super 66 winner’s ticket came from a Quick Pick entry purchased at Glenorchy Central News agency in Glenorchy Central Shopping Centre, and a staff member at the lottery retailer said that they were excited to have sold a winning ticket. “It’s our first Super 66 division one win,” exclaimed Megan Murray, who works at the store. Earlier this year a man from Tasmania won a $30 million Australian Powerball jackpot.
“We’ve sold three TattsLotto division one winning entries and one Wednesday Lotto division one winning entry, but this is out first Super 66,” she explained. “We are so happy for the winner and we wish her all the best with her prize,” the Glenorchy Central News agency team member continued.
