The Easter long weekend ended on an unexpected high note for a Ballarat woman who discovered late Monday night that she was one of two winners to take home a boosted division two prize of $526,661.35 thanks to the Monday & Wednesday Lotto Cashcades promotion.

The delighted winner shared that she was a creature of habit who regularly checks her entries at night following the draw.

“Normally I go on the Lott app around 10pm at night after the draw has occurred to check my entries,” the happy woman explained.

“Last night I was looking at it and a row lit up yellow and I thought I’d won around $5,000 and then realised there were more zeros!“

I went out to check with Mum and she wrote out all the winning numbers and I just kept thinking ‘am I seeing this right?!’.

“We said we wouldn’t believe it until I got the phone call from Tatts!”

When Tatts officials confirmed her win via phone this morning, the woman shared that she was shaking with nerves.

“I’m nervous now! I’m shaking a little bit with anticipation!” the winner exclaimed.

“I play Monday & Wednesday Lotto quite often – especially when Double Dividends is on but I hadn’t heard of the Cashcades promotion!

“The extra $500,000 was definitely a nice surprise!

“I live with my Mum and our house needs renovations and we’ve been trying to come up with the money – that problem is solved!

“I might also get a new car – I can justify spending $30,000 now!” the winner joked.

The division two winning entry was a 36 game QuickPick purchased online at theLott.com – Australia’s official online lottery. 

The only other division two winning entry in Australia was a store syndicate in Wollongong, New South Wales.

The six winning numbers in Monday & Wednesday Gold Lotto draw 3652 on Monday 17 April 2017 were 25, 38, 43, 21, 41 and 30. The supplementary numbers were 14 and 22.
