Monday 21 January, 2013 - A couple who purchased their TattsLotto entry in Prahran were shocked by the news this morning that they won a first division prize of $341,880.02 in Saturday’s TattsLotto draw!
When contacted by a Tatts official this morning, the winning woman was already at work and was taken completely by surprise.
“You can’t be serious…I’m speechless,” she said as the news sunk in.
“We have dreamed of winning TattsLotto for as long as we’ve been playing – that’s over 30 years. We had no idea we won but just yesterday we were talking about what we’d do if our numbers came up!
“Would you believe, I’m retiring from work next week. This money could not have come at a better time for us,” she explained.
“We’ll certainly be using some of the money for our retirement and we’ll also go on a big holiday.
“Helping out our family is at the top of the list too,” the winning woman added.
The winning 12-game ticket was purchased from Prahran Market Lotto & Tobacco Station, 183 Commercial Road in Prahran.
Another three division one prizes went to winning entries in Victoria. One was purchased from Central West Newsagency in Braybrook, and two others were from Murphy’s Newsagency in Geelong West.
Throughout Australia, there were 12 entries that won a first division share of TattsLotto’s estimated $4 million division one prize pool on the weekend. Along with the four winning tickets purchased in Victoria, there were two purchased in New South Wales, three in Western Australia, two in South Australia and one in Queensland.
The winning numbers in TattsLotto draw 3287 on 19 January 2013 were 4, 25, 11, 16, 19 and 14 with the supplementary numbers 34 and 18.
