Hard-working Chef from Williams Landing served up $1.9 million in TattsLotto Superdraw!

A hard-working Chef and devoted Dad from Melbourne’s south-western suburb of Williams Landing has been served up a division one dish in the weekend’s TattsLotto Superdraw worth a juicy $1.9 million!

With Fathers’ Day only a few days ago, the happy father and his son told Tatts that the windfall had already brought them closer together and would be life-changing for their family.

“I’m so excited and just feel so happy and over-the-moon at the moment!” the man exclaimed.

“It’s just an unbelievable surprise and an unbelievable prize! “I only realised today when I scanned my ticket at an outlet and had to check it twice! The first thing I did was give my son a phone call to tell him the news!”

The son said he was very proud of his hard-working dad who he said was very deserving of the win.

“He actually called me with the news when I was in the toilet! And he tried to rush me – saying it can’t wait, you’ve got to come over right away! But I said come-on Dad give me five minutes,” he joked.

“I think he might keep working for a while but it’s possible he’ll take some time off to go travelling now.

“Every time I ask him things like ‘do you want to go fishing with me?’ or ‘do you want to go skiing with me?’ – he says sorry I’m busy working!

“My dad cooks great food! He’s the best chef! He does a great job, but he deserves to put his feet up a bit more often.

“And it’s possible we might upgrade to a bigger house for the family!”

The division one winning father, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his System 8 QuickPick entry at Williams Landing News, Lotto & Tobacco, Shop T10 Williams Landing Centre, Overton Road in Williams Landing.

Kim Hua-Nguyen is a staff member at Williams Landing News, Lotto & Tobacco and was overjoyed to know the prize had been claimed by a local customer.

“We’ve had plenty of second division wins but this is our first ever division one winning customer!” Ms Hua-Nguyen exclaimed. “It’s wonderful! Sounds like a very happy family – so we’re very happy for them too!”

Throughout Australia, there were eleven entries that won a first division prize of $1,909,090.91 in the weekend’s $21 Million Superdraw 3665.

Along with the division one winning entry in Williams Landing there were four division one winning entries sold in the Victorian suburbs of Kilsyth, Hoppers Crossing, Roxburgh Park and a group syndicate set up in Preston.

Further around the country, four division one winning entries were purchased in New South Wales and two winning entries were purchased in Queensland.

The Lott’s division one winning tally is now sitting at 76 so far this financial year, including 26 in Tatts.
