Mill Park mates win TattsLotto!

Two mates from Mill Park feel like they’ve hit the big time after discovering this morning their shared TattsLotto entry won division one and additional divisional prizes totalling $690,358.56!

One of the mates, who registered their System 8 entry to his Tatts Card, spoke to Tatts this morning and received the news that they’d won division one.

“I am sitting down, but I’m shaking now because I only thought we’d won about $1500!” the man exclaimed.

“No way! Oh no! Oh you’re kidding! I don’t believe this, are you serious? You’re not lying to me?

“Me and my friend share this together and we’ve been playing for ten years, so that’s around $340,000 each! My mate rang me on Sunday and told me we got four straight numbers – but I’ll be breaking the news to him it’s actually six!

“I’m a North Melbourne supporter so I chose some of the numbers in our TattsLotto entry from players – I’ve got Wayne Carey - 18, Anthony Stevens - 10 and Glen Archer – 11.

“I just can’t wait to phone my mate and tell him, we’ve been friends since we were 15 years old. It’s going to go a long way for the both of us!

“I’ve been working my balls off just to make ends meet. But this is going to finish my year off on such a high! I can’t thank you enough.”

The winning mates, who wish to remain anonymous, purchased their 1-game System 8 marked entry from Plenty Valley Lotto, Shop 71 in Westfield Plenty Valley, 415 McDonalds Road in Mill Park.

Melanie Ly is the owner of Plenty Valley Lotto and was delighted to sell her first division one winning entry since taking over ownership in November 2011.

“It’s wonderful to have already sold a division one winning ticket here in round about one year of business!” Ms Ly exclaimed.

“We’re very happy for our winning customers and absolutely chuffed that we were a part of their life-changing win!”

Throughout Australia, there were six entries that won a first division prize of $673,151.01 in TattsLotto draw 3691 on Saturday 3 December 2016.
