Tuesday 30 July, 2013 - The hunt for the mystery TattsLotto player who won more than $400,000 with an unregistered ticket purchased in St Albans is over.
The winner, who wishes to remain completely anonymous, has come forward today to claim their division one prize 10 days after Saturday TattsLotto draw 3339.
“It’s a gift from heaven! Someone is looking after me,” the excited winner told a Tatts official.
The winning unregistered entry was purchased from Winning Lotteries St Albans, 59 Alfrieda Street in St Albans.
Tatts spokesperson Belinda McDougall wants to remind players of the importance of registering their entries to a Tatts Card.
“Players are encouraged to always register their lottery purchases to their Tatts Card,” Ms McDougall said.
“Not only does registration ensure your prize is secure, but it also ensures you can be contacted directly with news of a big win!”
