Balnarring retirees on cloud nine following TattsLotto win

Monday 12 March, 2012 - A retired couple in their eighties from Balnarring is on cloud nine, after discovering their TattsLotto QuickPick won $851,802.74 in Saturday’s draw.

The husband explained that the couple discovered their big win yesterday morning.

“My wife woke up early and turned the radio on to get the TattsLotto results,” he said.

“When she showed me the numbers I remember saying – those don’t look like very good numbers to me!

“So you can imagine my surprise when I checked our QuickPick and discovered that we had the winning combination!

“We took the ticket straight to Balnarring Village News & Lotto where we purchased it and asked them to check it for us.

“It was a wonderful lift when the ticket was confirmed as a division one winner, and we were told we had won more than $851,000!

“We are on cloud nine!”

When asked what they plan to do with their prize money, the couple said they would use it to help their children and grandchildren.

Paul Burns from Balnarring Village News & Lotto said he was delighted such a big prize had been claimed by one of his regular customers.

“It’s the first division one winning TattsLotto entry we’ve sold here at Balnarring Village News & Lotto; we hope it’s the first of many!”

There were five division one winners nationally in TattsLotto draw 3197 on Saturday 10 March 2012, three in Victoria and two in Western Australia.

The winning numbers were 41, 21, 32, 20, 26 and 43. The supplementary numbers were 22 and 6.
