Monday 11 March, 2013 - Two TattsLotto players in Launceston are celebrating an unforgettable start to their week thanks to a division one TattsLotto win on the weekend!
Paris holiday on the horizon for Launceston woman
A Launceston woman will realise her lifelong dream to visit Paris after winning a division one share and other divisional prizes totalling $410,424.12 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.
“I’ve gone all goose bumpy. I’ve never won anything in my life – I just can’t believe it,” she said as the news sunk in.
“I’m going to go to Paris! I’ve always wanted to visit Paris but never thought I’d actually get there. Now I can go!
“This win also means I can give up work if I like and help out my family,” the winner added.
The winning System 7 entry was purchased from Prospect Marketplace News, Shop 7, 350 Westbury Road in Prospect, Launceston.
Happy retirement on the cards for local Grandfather
A local Grandfather is now looking forward to a stress-free retirement after winning a division one share and other divisional prizes totalling $416,462.97 in Saturday’s TattsLotto draw.
The winning man was busy at work when he received the good news from a Tatts official this morning.
“My head is spinning. I don’t know how I’m going to work for the rest of the day that’s for sure!” the shocked winner said.
“I’ve been playing for more than 40 years and always dreamt of winning but never thought I would.
“This will mean I can retire happy down the track,” the excited winner explained.
