Monday 18 June, 2012 - A Wantirna family has had their heads in the clouds today since discovering they won a first division share worth $825,573.35 in Saturday’s TattsLotto draw!
The man who purchased the winning ticket said he was expecting the phone call from Tatts after checking the draw results in Sunday’s newspaper and braced himself for the news.
“I’m sitting down, now you can tell me how much we won,” he said excitedly.
The man’s wife said the win comes at a perfect time for them and will help make their lives easier.
“This means we won’t have to worry about money for quite a while; our retirement will be more comfortable,” she said.
So far the winners plan on sharing their windfall with family, but don’t have any firm ideas for how to treat themselves.
“We’ll think about all of that when we come down off cloud nine!” the winning woman exclaimed.
“We’ll certainly put it to good use.”
The winning entry was purchased from Knox City Newsagency, Shop 2080 in Knox City Shopping Centre, Wantirna South.
There were five division one winners nationally in Saturday TattsLotto draw 3225 on 16 June 2012, with one each in Victoria, Queensland, Western Australia, South Australia and the Australian Capital Territory.
The winning numbers were 16, 35, 18, 36, 25 and 40 with supplementary numbers 2 and 21. There were also 52 division two winners who took home $10,745.00 each.
