Tuesday 4 February, 2014 - Ignorance is bliss, except when it comes to winning the lottery! After one month, a Northcote woman has come forward to claim her $1.4 million share of TattsLotto’s $30 Million Megadraw!
The woman told a Tatts official she was totally oblivious to her good fortune until she rifled through some old papers and discovered her long-forgotten ticket in the January 4 Megadraw.
“I was cleaning out my room and found the ticket just now; I’d totally forgotten I’d bought it!” the winner in her late-20s said.
“I had seen the sign up in the Tatts shop that there was an unclaimed prize from the Megadraw a few weeks ago but it never clicked that I had the ticket they were looking for.
“I’m going to use the money to pay off my mortgage, help my parents and go on a well-deserved holiday,” the winner said happily.
“I’ll also donate some of the money to special causes like breast cancer research and a children’s charity in West Africa.”
The winner purchased her 24-game QuickPick entry in TattsLotto’s $30 Million Megadraw from Northcote Lucky Lotto, Kiosk 1 in Northcote Plaza Shopping Centre, Northcote.
The winner has chosen to remain anonymous.
Throughout Australia, there were 21 entries that won a first division share of TattsLotto’s $30 million division one prize pool in draw 3387, each worth $1,428,571.43.
The winning numbers in TattsLotto’s $30 Million Megadraw 3387 on 4 January 2014 were 6, 32, 10, 40, 5 and 28 with the supplementary numbers of 37 and 29.
