A Melbourne mum who won more than $400,000 from TattsLotto didn’t exactly celebrate straight away.

The mum, from Melton, was one of 14 division one winning entrants from Saturday’s Lotto draw and won $428,018.

She discovered she won on Sunday morning after checking her phone.

“We were stoked,” she said.

“We couldn’t really do much after that. We’re parents, so your day doesn’t really change.

“I still did a load of washing and spent my afternoon running around after the kids.”

The mum said she used a combination of birth dates and her anniversary as numbers for the entry.

“We play Lotto every week and have been playing the same numbers for years,” she said.

It wasn’t all housework for the winner though. She said the family enjoyed a lunch out to celebrate.

The family also plans to pay off the mortgage.

The winning numbers were 3, 10, 12, 6, 8 and 24, while the supplementary numbers were 36 and 45.
