Division one win in The Pools causes a splash in Sandy Bay!

Wednesday 6 April 2016 - A woman from Hobart’s beachside suburb of Sandy Bay was delighted to discover she had won a prize of $45,145.85 in The Pools - a Tatts Lotteries game where 6 numbers are drawn from 38 based on the results of local and international soccer matches.

It’s the second win for the suburb of Sandy Bay in less than nine months, following a TattsLotto division one win of more than $711,000 in September 2015.

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

“You’ve got me on tenterhooks!” the shocked winner exclaimed.

“$45,000 – goodness me! That’s absolutely astonishing! You’ve made my day…and month and year!

“You know I play lotto every week but I hadn’t thought to check my entry in The Pools yet.

“My husband will be so excited! We’ve been looking at airfares to the USA, so I think that’s what has triggered this luck! Now we’ll be able to go and upgrade our experience!”

The happy woman won her division one prize in The Pools with a 12-game marked entry purchased at Sandy Bay Lotteries, 230 Sandy Bay Road in Sandy Bay.

Neda Mirkazemi is the owner of Sandy Bay Lotteries and said she was thrilled one of her customers had a division one win in The Pools.

“Congratulations to Sandy Bay’s newest division one winner who can now enjoy a trip overseas! We wish our winning customer all the best with her windfall and her travels.” Ms Mirkazemi said.

“It’s great to have had two division one wins in the Sandy Bay area and I’m hoping we can make it a third very soon!”

The winning numbers in The Pools draw 1601 on Saturday 2 April, 2016 were 38, 26, 33, 22, 21 and 18 with the supplementary number 12.
