Happy Churchill pensioner wins first division in TattsLotto!

Monday 20 July 2015 - A Churchill pensioner has become the state’s newest division one winner after his entry in the weekend’s TattsLotto draw won a first division prize of $835,719.07!

The excited winner said he’d been playing TattsLotto for as long as he could remember and couldn’t believe his eyes when he realised his 36-game QuickPick entry had won a share in first division.

“It’s unbelievable isn’t it? I’m very, very happy!” the man exclaimed when a Tatts official contacted him with the good news.

“It’s happened to me late in my life but that means I’ll be able to help my family!

“My family and I have been talking about what we’ll do with the money, but for now the plan is to let it rest in the bank for a while and then see what happens!”

The winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his winning 36-game QuickPick entry from Churchill Newsagency & Lotto, Shop 2, Georgina Place at Hazelwood Village in Churchill.

Cyndy Ward is the owner of Churchill Newsagency & Lotto and said that she was over-the-moon when she discovered her outlet had sold a division one winning ticket.

“We’re so excited for our lucky customer who has won first division with an entry purchased here in Churchill!” Ms Ward exclaimed.

“It’s great for the local community and there are plenty of customers coming in with a smile on their face because they’ve heard that we sold a division one winning ticket!

“There are two big jackpots in Oz Lotto and Powerball up for grabs this week, so we’re hoping our store can do it again!”

Throughout Australia, there were five entries that won a first division share of TattsLotto’s estimated $4 million division one prize pool on 18 July 2015, each worth $835,719.07. Along with two winning entries purchased in Victoria, there was one sold in New South Wales, and two were from Western Australia.
