“It was shocking!”: Rosanna couple worried there was an error with $216,000 Super 66 division one winning ticket
Although a Rosanna couple had been dreaming of winning the lottery, when they discovered their $216,000 Super 66 win on the weekend, they immediately assumed there was something wrong with their ticket.
The victorious Victorians held the only division one winning entry in Super 66 draw 4247 on Saturday 2 April 2022. The division one winners took home a prize of $216,224.40.
This morning, we reached out to the winning pair, who were still reeling from their exciting discovery.
“I’ve been a bit anxious. I’ve just been waiting for your call,” the winning man giggled.
“We woke up at around 7am yesterday, and while my wife was doing a few things around the house, I checked our Super 66 ticket on The Lott app.
“I couldn’t believe it! I thought it was an error at first. My wife came and checked the ticket for me, and we logged in and out of The Lott app so many times.
“There was a lot of disbelief! You dream about these things, but it is so shocking when it happens.
“Once we realised it was real, we gave each other a big cuddle and curled up on the couch together.
“We’re over the moon! It’s certainly put a spring in our step.
“We want to be careful with the win. We will put the money into savings until we find a house we love, and then it will be used for a deposit.
“We’ll save a bit for the future as well.”
The delighted duo purchased their 5-game QuickPick entry online at thelott.com – the official home of Australia’s lotteries.
