Monday 25 November, 2013 - A family from Seymour has claimed a first division TattsLotto prize of $820,160.65 following Saturday’s draw!
A Tatts official spoke with the winning father today who said they’re yet to plan how to use their windfall.
“I’ve played TattsLotto for more than 30 years, but I’ve never actually made a list of things to check off if I won,” the winning man said.
“It’s nice to win in time for Christmas.”
The winning 10-game marked TattsLotto entry was purchased from Seymour News & Lotto, 66 Station Street in Seymour. The winners have chosen to remain anonymous.
Another first division TattsLotto win of $820,160.65 came just in time for a Melbourne grandmother who had been dreading the impending Christmas season.
It has been a trying year for the woman in her 60s after the sudden loss of her husband several months ago changed her life.
She said winning TattsLotto has changed it all over again.
“I’ve played TattsLotto since it started more than 40 years ago; this is just unbelievable,” said the overwhelmed woman.
“It’s been very difficult; there’s been a lot of heartache. This would have been the first Christmas the grandkids only got very small presents,” she said.
“The biggest thing is that I won’t have to worry about the bills now or even costs like buying petrol for the car. I’m not terribly superstitious, but maybe my late husband is looking out for me.”
The woman purchased her winning System 8 marked TattsLotto entry from Endeavour Lotto, Shop 53/54 in Endeavour Hills Shopping Centre. Her System 8 entry type won her a division one prize of $820,160.65 plus other divisional amounts for a total of $834,466.45.
This is the fourth division one lotto win the Endeavour Lotto Tatts outlet has sold within two years, with the combined prizes totalling $3.3 million.
Throughout Australia, there were five entries that won a first division share of TattsLotto’s estimated $4 million division one prize pool in draw 3375, each worth $820,160.65. Along with the two winning entries purchased in Victoria, three others were purchased in Queensland.
The winning numbers in TattsLotto draw 3375 on 23 November 2013 were 31, 39, 7, 20, 30 and 5 with the supplementary numbers of 22 and 9.
