Melbourne man scores $96K prize in The Pools!

Tuesday 15 December 2015 - Christmas celebrations have kicked off early for a Melbourne man after he won a prize of $96,018.52 in The Pools - a Tatts Lotteries game where 6 numbers are drawn from 38 based on the results of local and international soccer matches.

The winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, was unaware he’d won first division until a Tatts official contacted him with the big news.

“Wow!” the stunned winner initially exclaimed.

“This is wonderful news after what has been a tough year for me. It’s so beautiful to win this prize money and just before Christmas too!

“It’s a little too early to say what I’ll do with my windfall but it is very welcomed!”

The man won his division one prize in The Pools with an 18-game marked entry purchased from Rosanna Newsagency, 135 Lower Plenty Road in Rosanna.

Rosanna Newsagency owner Xinwei Huang was delighted to learn that his outlet had sold the first division winning ticket in The Pools.

“It’s been a few years since we had our last division one win so we were long overdue for this one,” Mr Huang said.

“We’d like to congratulate our winner and wish them all the best for the future.

“We’re now hoping that we don’t have to wait very long to sell another first division winning ticket. Maybe lightning can strike twice in one week and we can sell the division one winning ticket in this week’s $25 million Oz Lotto draw or the $25 million Powerball draw!”

The winning numbers in The Pools draw 1585 on Saturday 12 December, 2015 were 20, 37, 36, 35, 32 and 26 with the supplementary number 23.

$50 million in combined jackpots this week!

There are more chances to win big this week with a massive $25 million up for grabs in tonight’s Oz Lotto draw and Powerball has also jackpotted to $25 million for Thursday. Tickets are available from all Tatts outlets or online via Tatts.com.
