Monday 17 September, 2012 - One happy TattsLotto player in Torquay has started the week $307,996.41 richer after winning a division one share of the weekend’s draw!
The winner, who has chosen to remain anonymous, purchased their TattsLotto entry from Torquay Lotto & Gifts, Shop 1 at 17 Gilbert Street, Torquay.
Torquay Lotto & Gifts owner Corinne Nigro said the community was very excited about the news today.
“Word gets around in a small town after a big win like this, so we’ve had lots of customers asking us about it today,” she said.
“It has set the town abuzzing.
“In the two and half years we’ve owned the store we have now sold four lotto entries that have won first division prizes,” she said.
“I know at least three of those winning tickets were sold by my hands!
“If I got a chance to speak to the winner from the weekend I think I’d have tears in my eyes as I told them how happy I was for them. I really hope the prize has gone to a good home.”
Throughout Australia there were fourteen winners who shared in Saturday’s guaranteed $4 million division one prize pool. There were ten winners in Victoria, three in Queensland, and one in Western Australia.
