Monday 31 December, 2012 - An Ascot Vale couple will start the New Year with an extra $1.4 million in their bank account after winning a first division prize in TattsLotto’s $30 million Megadraw on the weekend!
The winners had purchased an unregistered TattsLotto entry so Tatts was unable to speak with them until they came forward to claim their prize today.
The young couple said they were in disbelief at winning a major prize.
“We’re not regular players but we’ll sometimes buy a ticket when we get a feeling it’s a good idea,” the winning husband said.
“Every time we do buy a ticket we have a discussion about what we’d do if we won the lotto, and now we’re actually having that conversation for real. It’s such a surprise.
“We haven’t decided what we’ll do with all the money but we’ll pay off our mortgage first and foremost.”
The winners purchased their QuickPick entry from Ascot Lotto and News, 217 Ascot Vale Road in Ascot Vale.
There were five winning entries purchased in Victoria in TattsLotto’s $30 million Megadraw and each of the winners will each kick start the New Year with a first division prize of $1,428,571.43.
Along with the Ascot Vale ticket, the other winning entries were purchased from Glenroy Newsagency in Glenroy, Supanews Highpoint Atrium in Maribyrnong, The Pines Lotto & Confectionery in Doncaster East, and one from Tatts directly.
The prize won with a ticket purchased from Maribyrnong will be split between a ten-member store syndicate while the other four prizes will go to individual winners.
Throughout Australia, there were 21 winners who claimed a $1,428,571.43 first division share of TattsLotto’s $30 million Megadraw division one prize pool. Along with the five winning tickets purchased in Victoria, there were four purchased in Queensland, four in New South Wales, four in Western Australia, two in Tasmania and two in South Australia.
The winning numbers in TattsLotto’s $30 million Megadraw 3281 on 29 December 2012 were 25, 7, 35, 15, 37 and 14 with the supplementary numbers 20 and 3.
