Moonee Ponds has a $750,000 TattsLotto winner floating around!

Friday 11 September 2015 - For almost one week, someone who won a first division share in last weekend’s $21 Million Superdraw has been walking around unaware that they are three-quarters-of-a-million dollars richer!

The mystery winner purchased their unregistered entry in TattsLotto draw 3561 on Saturday 5 September from Moonee Ponds Central Newsagency, Shop T16 in Moonee Ponds Central at Homer Street in Moonee Ponds.

Raj Makwana is the owner of Moonee Ponds Central Newsagency and said he’s been busy spreading the word to his customers that the $750,000 division one winning ticket was purchased from his store.

“I’ve got a bottle of champagne on the counter waiting for our happy division one winner!” Mr Makwana exclaimed.

“Each time a TattsLotto customer comes in there’s a lot of excitement when I ask them ‘Could it be you?’

“I’m very excited because this is our first division one win since we took over the management of the store six months ago, so it looks like we have already brought in some good luck!”

Tatts spokesperson Claire Taylor said because the $750,000 winning TattsLotto ticket is not registered to a Tatts Card there is no way of contacting the winner with the good news.

“It’s time for Moonee Ponds shoppers to dig deep in their pockets and dive through their handbags for any forgotten TattsLotto tickets. You may just find you are the holder of the winning ticket!” Ms Taylor said.

“If you think you may have the division one winning entry, we recommend you keep your ticket in a safe place and contact Tatts immediately to begin the prize claim process!”

There were 28 division one winning entries across Australia who each collect a share worth $750,000.00 in TattsLotto’s $21 Million Superdraw. Along with the nine winning entries sold in Victoria, there were six winning tickets sold in New South Wales, five in Queensland, and eight in Western Australia.

The winning numbers in TattsLotto’s $21 Million Superdraw 3561 on Saturday 5 September, 2015 were 13, 37, 27, 42, 31 and 5. The supplementary numbers were 18 and 30.
