Tuesday 7 May, 2013 - A Hobart woman has ‘great plans’ after she literally scooped the pool and won first division in The Pools, a Tatts Lotteries game where numbers are drawn based on the results of local and international soccer matches.
The local woman was grinning from ear to ear after being told that she was now $764,925.88 richer!
“My heart is beating so fast! This is amazing. I’ve got great plans for this money,” the excited winner said.
“This is going to do so much good because half the joy of winning is being able to share it with family, friends and charities!
“I’ve been playing The Pools since it started. Shortly after I began entering, I had a dream that I won so I’ve kept playing all these years. It only took 30 years but my dream came true!”
The winning entry was purchased online from Tatts.com. The winning numbers in The Pools draw 1449 were 8, 12, 16, 21, 26, and 31. The supplementary number was 3.
