Pharmacy's million dollar smile
"The entire team at New Norfolk Guardian Pharmacy are thrilled to have sold a Division 1 prize worth $1 million to a local woman," Ms Bird said.
The happy winner, who has not bee named, plans to use her windfall to pay off her mortgage and
help her family. The woman purchased her Monday Lotto System 7 entry from the pharmacy at 6 High St and was one of only two Division 1 winning entries in Lotto draw 3642 last Monday, March 14.
Speaking to a Tattersalls official early on Tuesday morning, the excited woman said she had checked her numbers online but didn’t dare believe the win was real until the prize had been confirmed by Tatts. “I started checking my numbers and was just sitting there staring and then started thinking ‘No! There’s something wrong here!' she said.
The lucky winner had been playing Lotto for a few years using family birthdates. While she wasn’t planning to rush into anything, she was going to use her windfall to pay off the mortgage and help family members. “We’re going to figure it all out before we do anything. We’ve got people we
want to help, but we want to get it right.”
