Devonport couple become multi-millionaires!

A couple from Tasmania’s north-western city of Devonport had a seven-digit windfall in TattsLotto on the weekend, holding one of two entries nationally that won a division one prize of $2,049,462.85!

The new multi-millionaires are regular customers of Centre Newsagency & Lotto in the Woolworths Arcade at 74 Best Street, Devonport, where they purchased their division one winning marked System 7 entry.

Gary Marshall is the owner of Centre Newsagency & Lotto and said that he was delighted to have sold his fourth division one winning TattsLotto entry to local customers.

“It’s wonderful to know it’s been won again by regular, local customers of ours!” Mr Marshall exclaimed.

“A prize of more than $2 million is fantastic for the winners and is the biggest division one prize winning ticket we’ve ever sold!

“We congratulate the winners and wish them all the best with their windfall.”

The happy winners have chosen to remain anonymous.

Centre Newsagency & Lotto sold its first division one winning TattsLotto entry in January 2012 (draw 3183), which was won by a retired couple from Devonport who took 10 days to discover they’d scored more than $695,000 with their 12-game marked entry. The couple vowed to help their grown children with the prize money.

In December 2012, the newsagency had another division one winning customer; a Tasmanian man became a millionaire, winning more than $1.4 million with a 50-game QuickPick entry in TattsLotto’s $30 million Megadraw (draw 3281).

Then just four months later a Tasmanian couple who purchased a 36-game QuickPick entry in TattsLotto draw 3317 in May 2013 from the newsagency won more than $832,000, which they said meant they could retire early and travel.

Throughout Australia, there were two entries that won a first division prize of $2,049,462.85 in the weekend’s TattsLotto draw. Along with the winning entry from Devonport in Tasmania, the other division one winning ticket was purchased in Burpengary in Queensland.

The winning numbers in TattsLotto draw 3653 on Saturday 23 July 2016 were 7, 10, 15, 22, 32 and 4, with the supplementary numbers 6 and 38.
