Monday 11 February, 2013 - Ten very fortunate TattsLotto players in Craigieburn are starting the week more than $220,000 richer thanks to being part of an outlet syndicate that won a first division prize in TattsLotto’s $20 million Superdraw on the weekend!
The players each purchased an entry in the syndicate from Craigieburn Newsagency and Lotto, and will split a total prize of $2,229,271.33 between them, for a share of $222,927.13 each.
Outlet manager Wendy Vellere said the syndicate has only been running for a few months.
“We’ve operated this 10-member syndicate for around two months, and it has won smaller prizes fairly consistently in that time so we were already calling it a lucky syndicate,” Ms Vellere said.
“All of the winners are Craigieburn locals, and five of them are regular customers of ours so we’re very pleased to see them all win.
“One of the winners bought an entry in this syndicate for the first time this week, so he was very fortunate to win big right away,” she said.
“But would you believe, one of our staff members who would normally purchase a share actually forgot to this time and missed out on winning $222,000!”
The winners will take some time to let the news sink in before deciding how to use their windfall.
“A customer who won came into the shop and she was crying when she found out – she’s a struggler so it’s great news for her. Most of the winners don’t know how they’ll spend the money yet,” Ms Vellere added.
The winning System 7 QuickPick entry was purchased from Craigieburn Newsagency and Lotto, Shop 9 in Craigieburn Shopping Centre.
Throughout Australia, there were nine entries that won a first division share of TattsLotto’s $20 million Superdraw division one prize pool on the weekend, each worth $2,222,222.23. Along with the winning ticket purchased in Victoria, there were two purchased in Queensland, two in Western Australia, one each in New South Wales, South Australia and the Northern Territory, with one also purchased online from Tatts.com.
The winning numbers in TattsLotto’s $20 million Superdraw, draw 3293, on 9 February 2013 were 41, 30, 29, 8, 33 and 36 with the supplementary numbers 23 and 9.
