A stubborn grandmother was unaware that she had won the lottery for several days because she refused to answer calls from unknown numbers.

But she did not become aware of her fortune until Friday, after several failed attempts by lottery officials to contact her.

& # 39; I had no idea! I just came in to buy another item. I can't believe it, & she said.
& # 39; I saw that I had a few missed calls, but I don't answer calls from unknown numbers.
& # 39; Maybe I should pick them up from now on if that means I have won some money. & # 39;
The lucky grandmother bought her winning entry of four random numbers in the Kingston Town Lotto in Hobart.
She was full of disbelief after reaching the jackpot, because she only started playing Lucky Lotteries a few months ago.
The woman said she would spend her prize money helping her grandchildren.
Kingston Town Lotto owner Vanessa Irvine said customers were standing in line for entries in the draw of the & # 39; lucky store & # 39; to buy.
& # 39; It was a fantastic feeling to tell all our customers that we have sold a Lucky Lotteries 1st prize, & # 39; she said.
The store has sold two winning entries and won a first prize Instant Scratch-It, but did not win a big one in one year.
The Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot prize is $ 68.68 million for the 1333 draw.
Kingston Lotto owner, Vanessa Irvine, said customers have purchased entries in the draw because the store is the & # 39; happy store & # 39; Was considered
