Actually she is a great-grandmother, and she has not missed a lottery play since the New Zealand Lotto began in 1987. She even made sure she had her tickets when she went away on vacation.
21 years of playing every single drawing has finally paid off for this lucky woman, who wishes to remain anonymous. This week she won a quarter share of First Divison, which is worth $250,806.
She has won several small amounts in previous draws, but never anything close to this big. And what was the first thing she had to do when she realized she’d won a quarter of a million dollars? She had to have a cup of tea. Now that’s a classy winner!
