Sleepless night for local Koroit family!

There was some bedtime tossing and turning in one household last night in the area of Koroit, after a local family discovered they’d won division one in Saturday night’s TattsLotto draw.

The happy winners, who wish to remain anonymous, said their division one prize worth $339,533.67 would make a big difference in their lives.

“It’s magnificent! It couldn’t have come at a better time for us really!” one of the family members exclaimed.

“I checked our entry on the app and noticed something unusual – all the numbers were highlighted yellow! I thought ‘hang on a minute I’ve won something here!’

“We’re very, very excited! Put it this way – after realising we’d won yesterday I was awake at midnight, 1pm, 2pm, 3pm… I just couldn’t keep my eyes shut to sleep since I was too busy thinking about what we’re going to do with the prize.

“This windfall means a lot to our family and will make life much easier! It’s huge news to happen in our small community!”

The family’s division one winning 15-game marked entry was purchased from Koroit Newsagency and TattsLotto, 129 Commercial Road in Koroit.

Bob and Dot Shanahan are the owners of Koroit Newsagency and TattsLotto and were thrilled to score their first division one winning entry in 23 years of business.

“This division one win comes as great news for Koroit!” Mrs Shanahan exclaimed.

“It’s warmed our hearts knowing that we’ve changed someone’s life – particularly on a winters’ day like today!

“Life has been tough for the locals lately because of the challenges in the dairy industry – so it’s nice to spread some happy news to lift everyone’s spirits.”

Throughout Australia, there were 12 entries that won a first division prize of $339,533.67 in the weekend’s TattsLotto draw. Along with the six winning entries purchased in Victoria, there were two winning entries sold in New South Wales and one each in South Australia, Tasmania, Queensland and the Northern Territory.

The winning numbers in TattsLotto draw 3645 on Saturday 25 June 2016 were 31, 7, 28, 10, 4 and 17, with the supplementary numbers 12 and 23.
