It's a very happy New Year for five Victorian TattsLotto winners

Sunday 1 January, 2012 - It is a very happy New Year for the 32 players around the country who shared last night’s $31 million New Year’s Eve Megadraw division one prize pool, each winning a prize worth $968,750.00.

Five of the 32 winning tickets were sold in Victoria - one each in Gladstone Park, Echuca, Watsonia North, Castlemaine and Heidelberg West.

The registered division one winning entries were purchased from Gladstone Park Lotto, Echuca Lucky Lotto and Lucky Lotto Greensborough.

Unfortunately this winner may be completely unaware of their good fortune. The contact details recorded to their Tatts Card are not up to date so Tatts has been unable to contact them.

Tatts Public Relations Manager Elissa Lewis said Victoria had a great start to the New Year with five division one winners.

“The two other division one winning entries were sold from Castlemaine Newsagency and Foodway Heidelberg West, but as these winning tickets were not registered to a Tatts Card, we have no way of contacting the winners to tell them the great news,” she said.

“It’s possible the winners are walking around with the equivalent of $968,763.30 in cash in their wallet or handbag, completely unaware of their good fortune.

“If you purchased a ticket in last night’s $31 Million Megadraw from Castlemaine Newsagency or Foodway Heidelberg West, keep it in a safe place and have it checked at a Tatts outlet or online at tattersalls.com.au as soon as possible.

“You could be starting 2012 $968,750.00 richer!”

There were 32 division one winning entries nationally in last night’s TattsLotto Megadraw. There were eight division one winners in Queensland, ten in Western Australia, five each in New South Wales and Victoria, three in South Australia and one in Tasmania.

The winning numbers were 7, 8, 28, 33, 38 and 41. The supplementary numbers were 4 and 37.

There was also one Super 66 winner from Victoria in last night’s draw who will start 2012 more than $60,000 richer.
