$1.75 million TattsLotto Superdraw win in Tasmania!

Friday 9 November, 2012 - Tasmanian Lotto players may have missed out on a share of this week’s big Oz Lotto jackpot, but one couple was still very happy to discover they’d won a prize in the weekend’s TattsLotto Superdraw.

The winning man came forward to Tatts late this week to claim a $1.75 million division one prize in the $21 million TattsLotto Superdraw held last Saturday!

The man said he had kept his unregistered ticket in a very safe place for several days before coming forward.

“We usually check the TattsLotto results in the newspaper after the draw,” he explained.

“My wife started screaming like hell Sunday night – I thought she’d hurt herself, so I ran in to see what the matter was!” he laughed.

“Turns out she had just checked off all six winning numbers on our ticket!”

The man said the money comes at a perfect time for he and his wife.

“Our business has been struggling a bit with the state’s economy the way it is, so this prize will certainly do wonders for us. The pressure has just disappeared,” the winning man said.

“We never thought this would happen. We haven’t been able to sleep properly since we realised we won. We’re looking forward to paying off debts and investing some of the money.

“Now my wife and I will be able to retire comfortably and when we choose to.”

The winning 36-game QuickPick entry was purchased from Sorell Lucky Agency, 31 Gordon Street in Sorell, Tasmania.

Throughout Australia, there were twelve winners who claimed a $1.75 million share of the $21 million Superdraw division one prize pool. There was just one winning ticket purchased in Tasmania, along with four in Victoria, three in New South Wales, two in South Australia and one each in Queensland and Western Australia.

The winning numbers in TattsLotto’s $21 million Superdraw, draw 3265 on 3 November 2012 were 31, 20, 12, 38, 43 and 7 with the supplementary numbers 25 and 6.

Tatts Public Relations Executive Zoe Knobel said there could be more big winners next week, with a large jackpot up for grabs in Powerball.
