Tuesday 21 May, 2013 - The mystery of the unregistered TattsLotto winner in Narre Warren was solved this afternoon when a woman popped into her local newsagency to check her tickets and discovered she won a $607,042.72 prize in Saturday’s draw!
The local woman in her 50s was reeling in shock when she spoke to a Tatts official today.
“I’m a single mum so you wouldn’t believe how much this means to me,” the winner said.
“It’s been a really long time since I’ve been on a holiday so that’s what I’ll look at doing first.
“Then I’d like to help my parents out because they’ve supported me so much over the years. I’m so glad I can give something back to them now.
“I’m going to look at how I can invest some of the money for the kids’ future.”
The winner purchased her winning 12-game marked TattsLotto entry from Fountain Gate Lotto Dreams, Kiosk 202 in Fountain Gate Shopping Centre on Magid Drive in Narre Warren.
The winner said she’s been playing the same special numbers in TattsLotto for a decade.
“I’ve put the same TattsLotto numbers on every Saturday for 10 years and this is the first big win I’ve had. My mind is blank now, I don’t know what to think,” she said.
“Thank you so much.”
As the winning entry was not registered to a Tatts Card, Tatts could not reach the winner with the good news following the draw. Players who register their lotto purchases to a Tatts Card ensure they will never miss out on a prize and they will be personally contacted with news of a division one win.
Throughout Australia, there were seven entries that won a first division share of TattsLotto’s estimated $4 million division one prize pool on 18 May 2013, each worth $607,042.72. Along with two winning entries sold in Victoria, there were three winning entries purchased in Queensland and two in Western Australia.
The winning numbers in TattsLotto draw 3321 on Saturday 18 May, 2013 were 14, 31, 16, 25, 6 and 3 with the supplementary numbers 9 and 35.
