A Mornington woman has compared winning $2 million in the weekend’s TattsLotto draw to finding the golden ticket to Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory. “This feels like a Willy Wonka moment, like I am Charlie from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory,” she said this morning. “You know how he wanted to win so bad and then he got the golden ticket and it was a dream come true? Now I’ve won; this is my golden ticket, my chocolate factory and my dream come true. With a multi-million-dollar prize, I could probably get my own chocolate factory, too.”
Asked how she planned to enjoy her prize, she said she would buy a house. “I have been dreaming of owning our family home for years and now I can actually do it. The rest I will share with my family and use to set the kids up for their future.”
The woman, who bought her 18-game QuickPick entry online, was one of 10 division one-winning entries in Saturday’s draw. The winning numbers were 32, 41, 13, 16, 33 and 18; the supps were 9 and 19.
