A lucky lottery player from Hampshire is welcoming good fortune into her life for the New Year in the form of a new house. The international lotto winner’s name is Tammie Pickett, and she won a whopping €1 million on a National Lottery scratch card. Continue reading to discover the full story.
Tammie is a 37-year-old woman from Basingstoke in Hampshire, England, and she couldn’t believe her luck when she won €1 million by playing her local lottery game. Her good fortune struck after she decided to visit her local post office to get sweets for her three-year-old daughter. Her daughter had recently been to the doctor and so Tammy wanted something to cheer her up with. She went into the post office with no other intentions of buying anything else.
The only thing that changed her mind was the fact that it was payday and she was feeling “a little frivolous”. That’s when she decided to buy two National Lottery Monopoly Millionaire 2016 scratch cards. She never dreamt that she would win. She didn’t even fantasize about what she would do if she had all that money. After buying the scratch card, she put it behind her and didn’t think about it.
Tammie only scratched the ticket off when she was home. “I was utterly speechless and even when I ran back into the shop I could barely make myself understood," explained Tammie. The happy winner ran back to the store she bought the ticket from to confirm the win. “I just burst into tears of joy, I couldn’t believe it and all the time my poor little daughter was worried something bad had happened. How do you explain to a little child that their mother has just become a millionaire?!” joked Tammie. Her international lotto win is the latest big win in Hampshire.
When lottery officials asked Tammie what she would like to do with her money, she said that she definitely wants to buy a new house for her and her husband Ian. “Up until now, we have always rented our accommodation and the children have had to share rooms. Now we can find our dream four-bedroom house in Basingstoke. It will be a home that the whole family can feel safe and secure in for many years to come,” said Tammie. “Forget perfume and socks, a new home is the absolute best Christmas present for our family!” said the happy winner while smiling.
