Monday 25 March, 2013 - A man from North Dandenong got the surprise of his life when he discovered he’d won a first division TattsLotto prize worth $1.47 million on Sunday morning!
“I was actually sitting on the loo reading my laptop on Sunday morning when I checked the TattsLotto results,” the brand new millionaire laughed.
“Yeah, it was a shock! I got myself together then ran into the bedroom to tell my wife.
“She said ‘Don’t wake me up!’ but I figured she’d want to hear this!”
The winning couple in their 30s have some grand plans in store for how to use their windfall.
“I called the boss this morning and told him about the win – I’ll be taking six months off work to travel with my wife. I’ve already been out to pick up some travel brochures,” the winning man said excitedly.
“We’re going over to Vegas and to England to see The Ashes. I’m a die-hard cricket fan so it’s a dream come true.
“We’ll also pay off the house and look at setting up a real estate business down the track,” he added.
