Monday 10 March, 2014 - A pensioner became Gippsland’s newest millionaire on the weekend when his TattsLotto ticket won a first division prize of $1,013,557.14!
“I’m bloody happy to hear from you, darlin’!” he exclaimed when a Tatts official phoned him with the good news.
“It’s unreal, love!”
The man said he had been playing TattsLotto as long as he could remember and was thrilled with the news his numbers came up in the weekend’s draw.
“When you’ve worked hard your whole life and struggled from time-to-time, it’s hard to believe that this could happen,” the winner said.
“I had about a dozen cups of tea to celebrate after checking those numbers!
“I haven’t decided how to spend the money yet but I have always dreamed of owning a bit of land and I love animals so I might be able to buy myself a hobby farm.”
The man purchased his winning TattsLotto System 7 marked entry from Lucky Lotto Wonthaggi, Kiosk 4, Wonthaggi Plaza, 2 Biggs Drive in Wonthaggi. His System 7 entry type allowed him to win the first division prize along with other divisional prizes for a total of $1,019,643.84.
