Young family claims $554,000 TattsLotto prize in Darwin!

Monday 15 September, 2014 - A 31-year-old mum from Wulagi has come forward to claim her division one TattsLotto prize of $554,821.45 from the weekend’s draw! 

The local woman said she purchased the winning TattsLotto ticket on a whim from Darwin Newsagency at 28 Smith Street Mall in Darwin. 

“I don’t play TattsLotto every week, but I just felt like buying a ticket when I was at the newsagency,” the winner said. 

“This is awesome! It will totally cover our mortgage and we’ll be able to make some investments for our baby son’s future. 

“When I first told my partner I thought I’d won TattsLotto he thought I was just mucking around with him. He’s pretty happy now!” she added. 

The winning TattsLotto 50-game QuickPick ticket was purchased from Darwin Newsagency at 28 Smith Street Mall in Darwin. The winner has claimed a division one prize of $554,821.45. 

Tatts spokesperson Zoe Knobel said this is the second major prize that has been won in the Top End this year. 

“It’s great to see a division one TattsLotto prize of more than half a million dollars has changed the lives of a young family in Darwin!” Ms Knobel said. 

“This is the second major lotto prize to be won in the Northern Territory so far this year, following a TattsLotto prize of $694,993.83 won from Coolalinga Newsagency in Howard Springs on 24 May 2014 and claimed by a man from the rural area of Darwin. 

“With TattsLotto’s $20 Million Superdraw coming up this weekend on Saturday, 20 September, we could see the winning streak continue in the Top End,” Ms Knobel added. 

The winning entry in the weekend’s TattsLotto draw was not registered to a Tatts Card so Tatts waited for the winner to come forward to claim their prize today. 

Throughout Australia, there were eight entries that won a first division share of TattsLotto’s estimated $4 million division one prize pool on Saturday 13 September, each worth $554,821.45. Along with the winning entry purchased in the Northern Territory, there were four sold in Victoria, and one each in Queensland, New South Wales and the ACT. 

The winning numbers in TattsLotto draw 3459 on Saturday 13 September, 2014 were 1, 10, 14, 5, 33 and 29 with the supplementary numbers of 9 and 22.
