Monday 4 March, 2013 - TattsLotto players in Castlemaine and Warrnambool each took out a first division prize worth $584,085.18 on the weekend!
Castlemaine TattsLotto winner
A couple who described themselves as “struggling pensioners” have won a first division TattsLotto prize in Castlemaine! The pair were delighted to receive the official phone call from Tatts today sharing the news of their windfall.
“That is very nice, isn’t it,” the winning husband said happily.
“We checked the winning numbers on the internet yesterday. I’ve been fairly calm since but the wife has been strutting around the house, all excited!
“We’d like to buy a new house somewhere, and I’d like a brand new car. I’ve always driven old bombs so buying a brand new car will just make my life,” he added.
“And we’ll go on holiday now, my oath. We’ll take the caravan out and travel around a while. We’ll just enjoy life, that’s what it’s all about.”
The winning 24-game QuickPick entry was purchased from Castlemaine Newsagency, Shop 1, 45 Mostyn St in Castlemaine.
Warrnambool TattsLotto winner
A couple from Warrnambool are shocked at the news they won a first division TattsLotto prize! The winners with grown-up children told a Tatts official that they’re not sure what they’ll do with the prize yet.
“For now we’ll just sit here and enjoy a coffee as the news sinks in!” the winning husband exclaimed.
The winners have chosen to remain anonymous, saying that they “won’t be telling a soul” about the win.
The winning 36-game QuickPick entry was purchased from Norfolk Lotto, Shop 4-5, Norfolk Plaza on Raglan Parade, Warrnambool.
