A standard procedure many people adopt when filling out lotto forms has paid off for a Dickson woman, who’s now a millionaire!

The lucky winner has been marking her lotto entries with family birthdates for 41 years – a system which has finally paid off.

The woman held one of three division one winning entries in Lotto draw 3710 earlier this week, with each winner taking home a massive $1 million!

She realised she’d won when coming across the winning numbers while reading the newspaper.

“My husband and I didn’t believe it! We had to rush to a newsagency to check our ticket,” she said.

“We’ve had small wins in the past, but nothing like this!”

The ecstatic winner, who bought her winning ticket from Dickson Newsagency, said she’ll put the money towards travel and helping her children.
