Castlemaine mother celebrates TattsLotto Megadraw win!

Tuesday 3 January, 2012 - A mother who purchased her TattsLotto ticket from Castlemaine Newsagency has had a wonderful start to 2012, after today finding out that she won a division one prize worth $968,750.00 in TattsLotto’s $31 Million New Year’s Eve Megadraw.

The woman explained that she discovered her win when she visited Castlemaine Newsagency to have her ticket checked.

“I had a 50 game QuickPick entry and didn’t check my ticket manually because I didn’t have time. If I had, it wouldn’t have taken very long as the winning game was only the third line down,” the shocked winner said.

“It really hasn’t sunk in yet, it’s all a bit surreal.”

When asked how she intends to use the prize money, the woman said she plans to pay off some of her mortgage and give some to charity.

“It will be nice to donate some money to those who really need it,” she said.

The woman purchased her winning 50 game Maxi QuickPick from Castlemaine Newsagency.

The woman was one of 32 division one winners nationally in TattsLotto’s New Year’s Eve Megadraw.

There were eight division one winners in Queensland, ten in Western Australia, five 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 with supplementaries 4 and 37.
