7.5 million man to buy dream motorbike!

Monday 4 August, 2014 - Today is one of the last Mondays a Victorian man had to wake up to go to work after discovering he’d won $7.5 million in Oz Lotto! 

The truck driver in his 50s checked his Oz Lotto ticket on Saturday and decided on the spot that he’d retire early and live a life of leisure riding his luxury motorbike.

“I’m going to get the bike I’ve always wanted – it’ll be a Harley,” the winning man said. 

“It really hasn’t sunk in yet, but as soon as I checked my ticket I decided I’m going to retire this month. Then I’m going to start building myself a home,” the winning man added. 

The man purchased the Oz Lotto 24-game QuickPick ticket that won him a first division prize of $7.5 million from Wyndham Village Lotto & News, Shop 39 in Wyndham Village Shopping Centre, 380 Sayers Road in Tarneit. 

The winning Oz Lotto entry was not registered to a Tatts Card so Tatts was unable to contact the winner with the good news following Tuesday’s draw. The winner has chosen to remain anonymous. 

Almost 12-months ago, Wyndham Village Lotto & News sold a division one TattsLotto prize of $1 million on 17 August 2013, followed by selling shares in a winning TattsLotto syndicate of $964,816 on 7 December 2013. 

The new owner of Wyndham Village Lotto & News Mahesh Thakur is thrilled the winning streak has continued under his management with an Oz Lotto prize of $7.5 million won on 29 July 2014. 

“This is the first Tatts outlet I’ve owned and I only took over the shop last Monday, the day before one of our customers won this $7.5 million Oz Lotto prize,” Mr Thakur explained. 

“It’s been a very exciting time for us and for our customers. Hopefully the luck continues for our customers this week with Thursday’s $40 million Powerball jackpot draw and TattsLotto’s $21 Million Superdraw on Saturday.”  

Last week’s first division Oz Lotto jackpot prize of $15 million was shared by the winner in Victoria, along with an entry purchased in Western Australia. Both entries will claim $7.5 million of the $15 million jackpot prize pool. 

The winning numbers in Oz Lotto draw 1067 on 29 July 2014 were 43, 15, 30, 38, 10, 1 and 31 with the supplementary numbers 22 and 35. Oz Lotto will offer a $2 million division one prize in tomorrow night’s draw. 

Players have another chance to hit the jackpot this week with Powerball offering $40 million on Thursday night! Plus, TattsLotto’s $21 Million Superdraw is on this Saturday, 9 August!
