TattsLotto Win in Altona Meadows
An Altona Meadows couple will continue in their spirit of giving by sharing some of their $404,818.02 division one TattsLotto prize with charity.
The retired couple said they will treat themselves to a few things, but they’re keen to give back to important organisations in the community.
“When my missus checked that winning ticket on Sunday we were just surprised, we couldn’t believe it,” the winning man said.
“We’ll buy a new car and plan to take a trip away now, but we won’t keep all the money ourselves.
“We often donate money to charities like the Salvation Army and others like nursing homes and health groups that need help, so we’ll be able to give much more now,” the winner said.
The winning 18-game marked TattsLotto entry was purchased from Central Lotto, Shop 38 in Central Square Shopping Centre in Altona Meadows. The winners have chosen to remain anonymous.
Mystery Winner in Reservoir
There were four other winning entries purchased in Victoria from Middle Brighton Newsagency in Brighton, Normanby News & Lotto in Thornbury, Raymond Street Lotto in Sale and Reservoir News & Lotto in Reservoir.
Tatts Spokesperson Zoe Knobel said Tatts is waiting to hear from the winner in Reservoir as their ticket is not registered.
“As the winning entry from Reservoir was not registered to a Tatts Card, we’re unable to contact the winner with the good news!” Ms Knobel said.
“We encourage TattsLotto players who purchased their entries in reservoir to check their tickets and contact Tatts directly if they believe they’re holding division one winning entry.”
Throughout Australia, there were 10 entries that won a first division share of TattsLotto’s estimated $4 million division one prize pool on the weekend, each worth $404,818.02. Along with the five Victorian entries, there were also two winning entries purchased in Tasmania, along with one each in Queensland, South Australia and Western Australia.
“We’re likely to see even more than 10 winners around the country in TattsLotto’s $25 million Superdraw on 23 March! Tickets are on sale now from all Tatts outlets and online at Tatts.com,” Ms Knobel added.
The winning numbers in TattsLotto draw 3301 on 9 March 2013 were 12, 44, 28, 10, 45 and 7 with the supplementary numbers 35 and 3.
