Son calls Drysdale dad with news of $1.47 million win!

Monday 25 March, 2013 - A family from Drysdale is “completely numb” after discovering they won a first division TattsLotto prize worth $1.47 million in Saturday’s TattsLotto Superdraw! 

The winning father said he was woken up by the life changing news early on Sunday morning. 

“I’ve been playing the same TattsLotto numbers every week for 20 years, and they’re all family birthday dates, so the kids would recognise them anywhere,” the winning man explained excitedly. 

“I got a call from my son at 5am on Sunday morning. He said, ‘Dad, I hope you put your TattsLotto numbers on this week!’, so I had to lean over to my wife to check she remembered to buy the ticket! 

“Thankfully she had – we won nearly one and a half million dollars!” 

The man said he and his wife have been in a state of shock since yesterday. 

“I’m just completely numb. I almost feel like crying, but the adrenaline is just rushing through my body. 

“We’re not sure how we’ll use the money, but we’ll definitely help the kids out. We’ve already celebrated with a few family members and close friends. We popped some champagne yesterday,” he said.  

The winning System 7 marked TattsLotto entry was purchased from Drysdale Lotto, Shop 8 in Drysdale Village Shopping Centre. The man will claim multiple divisional prizes from his System 7 entry, amounting to a total prize of $1,475,977.14. The winners have chosen to remain anonymous.
