Thursday 27 December, 2012 - A retired Newborough couple will start the New Year $666,666.67 richer after winning a division one prize in Wednesday Lotto overnight!
The winning Great Grandmother was stunned at the news when she spoke with Tatts today.
“I’ve been playing lotto with Tatts since it started around 40 years ago,” she said.
“My husband has been ill for some time and I’ve been caring for him so this is great news.
“In fact, we’ve been married for 66 years and just won $666,666, so ‘6’ might be our lucky number!
“We’ll use the money to help other family members too.”
The winner said the staff at Newborough Lotto where she purchased the ticket are lovely.
“I regularly visit the shop and everyone there is wonderful,” she added.
“It’s very exciting for them to sell a winning ticket too.”
Tatts spokesperson Zoe Knobel said that there will be many more happy winners before New Year with TattsLotto’s $30 Million Megadraw just around the corner on 29 December.
“Buy an entry today for your chance to share in $30 million this Saturday,” Ms Knobel said.
There were three winning entries in last night’s Wednesday Lotto draw, with two in New South Wales and one in Victoria. The winning numbers in Wednesday Lotto, draw 3203, were 31, 16, 7, 39, 43 and 19 with the supplementary numbers 18 and 20.
