Werribee warehouse workers win $1.5 million in Superdraw!

Wednesday 26 September, 2012 - There are three happy men at work in a warehouse in Werribee this week after they won $1.5 million in the weekend’s TattsLotto $22 Million Superdraw!

The three men started their informal work syndicate 12 years ago and have bought a ticket in TattsLotto every week since, but this is the first time they’ve had a taste of the division one prize pool.

When speaking with Tatts, one of the winning men said they were still in shock at the news.

“Once I checked that ticket on Monday night after work, I told my wife the good news then went straight around to the other guys’ houses to tell them in person,” he said.

“I can’t repeat what they said to me!” he laughed.

The man said there were a few plans in the works for how each of them would spend their half a million dollar share of the prize money.

“First things first, mortgages will be paid off and new cars will be bought,” he said.

“We’ll also look at how to invest some of the money to plan for retirement.

“There will be a bit of a celebration when we all go out to dinner with our wives somewhere nice and have a beer.”

The trio, who have chosen to remain anonymous, purchased their 12-game QuickPick from Super Lotto, Shop 8 at Hogans Shopping Centre in Hoppers Crossing and will split a total prize of $1,571,428.58.

Throughout Australia, there were fourteen winners who shared in the $22 million Superdraw division one prize pool. There were four winners in Victoria, three each in New South Wales and Western Australia, two in Queensland, and one each in South Australia and Tasmania.

The winning numbers in Saturday TattsLotto draw 3253 on 22 September 2012 were 1, 19, 45, 34, 17 and 32 with the supplementary numbers 38 and 22. Tatts Public Relations Executive Zoe Knobel said there could be more big winners this week, with large jackpots on offer in Oz Lotto and Powerball.
