Nanna from Wantirna wins Powerball multi-millions!

A nanna from Wantirna has received a dream-come-true phone call from Tatts this morning letting her know that she was last night’s sole division one Powerball winner and will claim the entire prize pool of $3 million!

The cheeky nanna and new multi-millionaire, was delighted to know she could give her family a once-in-a-lifetime gift to start them off in life.

“You’ve got to be joking! Yeah you are, you’re having me on! You’re pulling my leg!” she exclaimed.

“It’s marvellous news! You know, I still can’t believe I’ve won division one, I can’t even win an argument!

“In fact the whole lot of us will be happy now. Nanna will come up with a surprise! I’ll help fix the kids up for life and if they give me any cheek, they won’t get a cent!” she joked.

“It’s come at a good time, I think this will help my kids pay off their mortgages and my grandchildren to put towards their first homes! That will start them off well in life.”

The winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, got much more than a nice new perm when she purchased her 6-game marked entry from Manfre’s Hairdressing, Shop 11, Wantirna Mall Shopping Centre, Mountain Highway in Wantirna.

Joe Manfre is the owner of Manfre’s Hairdressing and said he couldn’t be happier for their winning customer.

“It’s fantastic news to know that we sold a $3 million division one winning ticket to one of our lovely customers!” Mr Manfre exclaimed.

“This year we’ve already had one customer take the cake when they won $2 million in TattsLotto’s $30 million Megadraw on Saturday 2 January, but who knew we’d be topping it with a $3 million winning customer so soon!

“I’ve actually still got a bottle of champagne waiting for our first multi-millionaire, so maybe this time we can say cheers to our happy winner!”
