Tuesday 3 January, 2012 - A Heidelberg West carer has had a wonderful start to 2012, after today finding out that he won a division one prize worth $968,750.00 in TattsLotto’s $31 Million New Year’s Eve Megadraw.
The man explained that he discovered the win when he visited a Tatts outlet this afternoon to have his ticket checked.
“When the staff at the newsagency put my ticket through the lottery terminal and I was told the ticket was a winner I was pretty excited!” he exclaimed.
“I’m not a regular player but was only saying to my brother last week that I should get myself a Tatts Card and play more regularly in 2012.”
When asked how he intends to use the prize money, the man said he plans to buy himself a house and car.
“I’d also like to give some of the prize money to my brother,” he said.“He’s always been very good to me and helped me out when I’ve needed it.
“It will be nice to give something back.”
The man purchased his winning 24 game Mega QuickPick from Foodway Heidelberg West.
The man 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.
