Carnegie's missing TattsLotto winner claims prize!

A hard working family man from Carnegie will start the new financial year with an extra $339,999.67 in his bank account after coming forward to Tatts to claim his division one TattsLotto prize from the weekend’s draw.

The winner said he had been too busy working to check his ticket and didn’t have a spare moment until finishing a hard day at work.

“I checked my ticket online and when I saw I had all six winning numbers I couldn’t believe it! I checked my ticket again and again,” the man explained excitedly.

“I was so shocked and excited I didn’t sleep at all because my mind was racing – I just couldn’t believe I had won.

“I went back to Carnegie Central Lotto where I purchased my ticket to check the ticket again and yes – I am the winner. I still can’t believe it.

“This win means so much to my family and me. We’ll be able to pay off our mortgage and have no debt. It is wonderful!”

The unregistered winning ticket was purchased at Carnegie Central Lotto, K8 Carnegie Central 2-28 Koornang Road, Carnegie.

Thy Som is the owner of Carnegie Central Lotto and is over the moon for her winning customer.

“This is our very first division one winning entry we have sold since opening the outlet around 18 months ago,” Ms Som explained.

“This is so exciting; we’re so happy and feel humble and blessed to have sold a division one winning ticket and changed the life of one of our customers.

“We’d like to congratulate our very first division one winner and wish them all the best.”
