Describing her amazement, the woman said: “At first, I thought I’d won over AUD 500 [£269], but then I wiped my eyes as I was still sleepy and saw it was a lot more.

“I can’t believe it. I had a little cry.”

The long-term lottery player, who hails from a suburb of Melbourne called Box Hill, won an incredible total of total of £312,969.71.

TattsLotto released a statement today saying: “While many were looking for chocolate eggs on Easter Sunday, a Box Hill woman was gazing with disbelief at her TattsLotto entry, struggling to believe she was a division one winner.

“The Victorian held one of the nine division one winning entries in TattsLotto draw 4353, drawn Saturday 8th April 2023.”

The lucky punter admits she had a feeling all along that would be a lottery winner.

“I’ve been playing for a long time. It’s just a hobby of mine, but at the back of my mind, I’ve always thought I’d win it one day.

“And my numbers have finally come out!”

However, it wasn’t all completely down to luck. “Some of the numbers I’ve been using are special, but for others, I just trusted my instinct and picked them.

The over the moon winner is planning to spend the money wisely and look after her family.

“It’s come at the right time. Now I can pay off the house and my family will be set. I might even buy a new car,” she says.

“I’m so happy about it. I keep checking the ticket with my family. This is a great gift.”

Elsewhere, a lottery winner who won £7.5 million has told of how he lost it all in a messy divorce.

Roy Gibney struck lucky in 1998 and blew the cash on a sprawling six-bedroom mansion set on 25 acres, which came with its own fishing lake.

Meanwhile, another couple managed to miss out on a £8.5 million lottery win for a heart-breaking reason, but it wasn’t all lost.
