One Canberran is $3.3 million richer thanks to a lucky lotto ticket.

The local public servant was one of three division winners in Oz Lotto draw 1209 on Tuesday April 18, with each taking home $3,333,333.34.

Now that’s a lot of digits!

The other division winners were from NSW and the Northern Territory.

The Canberra winner told a NSW Lotteries official, she had no idea about her win until she checked her ticket while grabbing a bite to eat.

“I came in to grab some lunch, check my ticket and get another ticket. So it’s been a pretty rewarding lunchbreak!” she joked.

“I think I need to pinch myself!”

She plans to use the money to help her family, among other things..

“I might retire early too. Travel is also certainly on the cards. I might go travelling and keep going until Christmas!”

The winner bought her 24-game QuickPick from Thistle Kiosk at Westfield Woden – which seems to be a lucky store!

“We’ve had a number of division one wins in recent years,” Owner Tania Dezman said.

“Congratulations to the winner! We hope they enjoy their prize!”
