Trio of transport drivers take out TattsLotto prize!

Tuesday 11 June, 2013 - A trio of transport drivers in Melbourne have taken out a first division TattsLotto prize worth $509,947.35 along with other divisional prizes for a total haul of $520,768.05!

The workmates in their 50s have been purchasing TattsLotto tickets together for years and are rapt to have won “the big one” on the weekend.

A Tatts official spoke to the man who regularly purchases the entries on behalf of the group.

“My wife and I have been buying TattsLotto tickets with these two other blokes for three years. We buy a ticket together every week,” the man said.

“I’d say we might have to have a beer together to celebrate now!”

The winning man said the prize money would certainly come in handy for him and his wife.

“This will solve a lot of problems, I can tell you. We’ll pay off the mortgage and fix up the car in the shed, or we might even buy a new one because it’s expensive to fix the transmission,” he said.

“I’ve had ups and downs before so I’ll be keeping my feet on the ground, but it’s really good news for us. The other guys will probably use the prize money for the same thing – getting rid of their mortgages.”

The winning System 8 marked TattsLotto entry was purchased from Lotto Luck Watergardens, Kiosk K01 in the Watergardens Shopping Centre, Taylors Lakes.

Along with the Taylors Lakes entry, two other division one TattsLotto prizes were purchased in Victoria from Chelsea Heights Post & Lucky Lotto in Chelsea Heights and Lucky Strike Lotto in Dandenong.

Tatts encourages players who purchased TattsLotto entries from Lucky Strike Lotto at Ritchies Supermarket in Dandenong to check their tickets today as the winning entry is unregistered so Tatts has no way of contacting the winner.

Throughout Australia, there were eight entries that won a first division share of TattsLotto’s estimated $4 million division one prize pool on 8 June 2013, each worth $509,947.35. Along with three winning entries sold in Victoria, there were two winning entries purchased in New South Wales and one each in Tasmania, Queensland and Western Australia.

The winning numbers in TattsLotto draw 3327 on Saturday 8 June, 2013 were 25, 7, 10, 28, 8 and 42 with the supplementary numbers 39 and 35.

There are more chances to win big this week with tonight’s $20 million Oz Lotto draw and another $10 million Powerball jackpot up for grabs on Thursday!
