A Melbourne woman has been given the shock of a lifetime after becoming almost $3 million richer overnight.
The woman, from Knoxfield, initially thought the win "was a hoax" after discovering she was the lucky recipient of a $2.8 million TattsLotto win.
She was getting ready for work this morning when she got the "mind-blowing call".
"Oh my god! Oh my god! I want to scream; I want to shout!" she said.
"I can't grasp this news. I'm speechless.
"I thought it was a hoax… I thought to myself: 'Who is playing mind games with me on a Monday morning'."
After falling "on tough times" recently, the woman says the money will totally transform her life and her family's.
"My heart is going a thousand miles an hour – I'm getting goosebumps," she said.
"It's such a beautiful feeling."
There were seven division one winning entries across Australia in TattsLotto draw 4271 on Saturday June 25. Each entry scored a division one prize of $2,857,142.86.
The winner said she has a couple of ideas in mind about how she will spend the money – paying off the house mortgage, visiting family overseas, and upgrading the car.
Her winning 12-game Quickpick was purchased online at thelott.com.
