Tuesday 17 April 2012 - A local Nhulunbuy man is celebrating this week after discovering he won a share of the division one prize pool worth $485,913.22 in Saturday’s TattsLotto draw.
The man in his forties is a regular TattsLotto player and was very pleased when he received the phone call from Tatts he’d been dreaming of.
“I’ve only got one thing to say about it – woohoo!” he said.
The shift-worker added that he marked the occasion by having a few beers to celebrate, and will use the money to set himself up for the future.
The man purchased his winning ticket from Nhulunbuy Newsagency. Store manager Lauren Williams said she was very happy to hear a local had won.
“We were totally surprised when we discovered we’d sold a winner,” Ms Williams said.
“It’s excellent for the community, and we’re expecting to see a few more customers getting involved this weekend!”
There were nine division one winners nationally in TattsLotto draw 3207 on Saturday 14 March 2012, with four winners in Victoria, and one each in Queensland, Western Australia, New South Wales, South Australia and the Northern Territory.
The winning numbers were 18, 25, 43, 13, 8 and 7 with supplementary numbers 17 and 4. Tatts Public Relations Executive Zoe Knobel said this Saturday’s TattsLotto draw on 21 April will be cause for more celebration around the country.
