Monday 17 September, 2012 - A woman from Boronia was caught by surprise this morning when she received the dream-come-true call from Tatts informing her she had won a first division prize in Saturday’s TattsLotto draw!
The woman in her late-40s won a prize of $301,887.01 with a 36-game Jumbo entry she purchased online at tatts.com.
The winner was completely taken aback by the call and said she couldn’t stop shaking.
“You are having me on!” she exclaimed in disbelief.
“My heart’s pounding at a thousand beats a minute. You are telling the truth aren’t you?” she questioned.
“This is something you only dream about!”
The winner said she already has a few plans in mind for how to spend the windfall.
“Would you believe that this last week I was struggling to buy firewood for my fireplace?
“Well I’ll tell you what, I’m going to go out and buy a tonne of firewood now!” she laughed.
“The bottom line is that this is enough money to pay off my mortgage, and I’ll also be able to do some renovations on the house and buy a new car.
“But not before I celebrate with a bottle of French champagne!”
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.
The winning numbers in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 3251 on 15 September 2012 were 32, 34, 19, 2, 11 and 23 with the supplementary numbers 10 and 39.
Tatts Public Relations Executive Zoe Knobel said she expects there will be more happy winners in Victoria this month.
“The $22 million Saturday TattsLotto Superdraw on 22 September is this weekend, so grab your entry today for your chance to win,” Ms Knobel said.
“Remember to register your entry to your Tatts Card so we can contact you to share the good news of a first division win.”
