Monday 7 January, 2013 - Two Victorian TattsLotto entries won first division prizes worth more than $1.3 million over the weekend!
One winning entry purchased from Waurn Ponds belongs to an individual winner, while the other will be shared by a 10-member syndicate in Clayton.
Waurn Ponds TattsLotto win
A local woman who purchased her winning TattsLotto entry in Waurn Ponds has won a first division prize of $1,352,450.87.
The woman said she was shocked to be woken up by the official phone call from Tatts this morning, and will take some time to get used to the idea of being a millionaire.
“The best thing about this win is that I won’t have to do shift work anymore,” she said happily.
“No more shift work, that will be wonderful. I have the option of early retirement now too.
“I’ll buy a house and do some international travel I think. I have a lot of planning to do now.”
The winning 24-game QuickPick ticket was purchased from Town & Country Lotto, Shop 503 in Waurn Ponds Shopping Centre, Waurn Ponds.
Clayton TattsLotto win
Another first division winning entry in Victoria will be shared by a 10-member Store Syndicate operated by Clayton Lotto, 373A Clayton Road, Clayton. Along with divisional prizes from their winning System-8 entry, each member of the syndicate will claim a total prize of $136,896.31.
Clayton Lotto owner John-Paul Daggian said the syndicate win is a coup for his Tatts outlet.
“Just under one year ago in February 2012 we had a very similar TattsLotto win of $1.1 million which went to another 10-member Store Syndicate,” Mr Daggian said.
“This time of year is apparently very lucky for Clayton Lotto players!”
Throughout Australia, there were three winners who claimed a first division share of TattsLotto’s estimated $4 million division one prize pool on the weekend. Along with the two winning tickets purchased in Victoria, there was one purchased in Western Australia.
The winning numbers in TattsLotto draw 3283 on 5 January 2013 were 20, 37, 32, 28, 30 and 31 with the supplementary numbers 1 and 34.
