Champagne breakfast for local TattsLotto millionaires!

A local couple have popped open the champagne and spent Sunday celebrating after discovering they had won division one and other divisional prizes worth $1,028,818.24 in Saturday night’s TattsLotto draw.

The retired dairy farmers, who have played TattsLotto for “so many years”, said the news hadn’t yet sunk in that they were now millionaires.

Upon receiving the dream-come-true phone call from a Tatts official on Monday morning, the happy winners exclaimed, “we’ve been waiting for your call!”

“My husband decided to check our ticket on Sunday, and he called me over saying he thought we had four, no maybe five, or is that all six numbers,” the winning wife explained.

“We just couldn’t truly believe it until we received your official phone call!

“We had a champagne breakfast yesterday to celebrate with our family, and they will certainly benefit from this win also!

“This windfall means we can relax and enjoy our retirement. We’re already planning a sightseeing trip around Australia!”

The winners have chosen to remain anonymous.

The division one winning System 8 marked entry was purchased from newsXpress Kerang, 19 Scoresby Street in Kerang.

NewsXpress Kerang is no stranger to division one TattsLotto glory after selling another division one winning entry only six months ago.

Mandy and Steve Holdstock are the owners of newsXpress Kerang and are overjoyed that TattsLotto riches have come to their outlet again.

“We’re so thrilled to have sold another division one winning entry. After five years of no wins, this year the drought has well and truly broken!” Ms Holdstock exclaimed.

“It’s fantastic to see the win go to another local winner, and we wish them every happiness for the future.”

Throughout Australia, there were four entries that each won a first division prize of $1,014,584.29 in the weekend’s TattsLotto draw. Along with the winning entry purchased in Kerang, there were another two winning Victorian entries purchased in the Melbourne suburbs of Epping and Glen Waverley, and one winning entry purchased in South Australia.

The winning numbers in TattsLotto draw 3647 on Saturday 2 July 2016 were 5, 20, 16, 41, 12 and 31 with the supplementary numbers 10 and 29.
