One dozen aged-care workers win division one in TattsLotto's Megadraw!

A private syndicate of 12 aged-care workers from Melbourne’s northern suburbs have discovered the life-changing news this morning that their shared ticket in the TattsLotto Megadraw won division one!

Thanks to their System 9 marked entry, the colleagues won division one as well as additional divisional prizes totalling $1,368,638.59!

The syndicate leader was elated when she discovered the group, aged 35 – 65 years old, had chosen all six winning numbers in the New Year’s Eve Megadraw.

“I still can’t believe it! It’s unbelievable!” she exclaimed.

“We couldn’t have gotten better news for the New Year! We almost didn’t get our entry so it’s all accidentally fallen into place. We’re lucky we did!

“I have been messaging the other members of the syndicate today with the news and no-one is believing me! They’re saying ‘You’re joking! You’re joking!’ “

I’d say most of us will be putting their share towards mortgages, but I also plan to treat myself to a new kitchen and bathroom and a holiday to New Zealand!”

The syndicate, who wish to remain anonymous, purchased their winning System 9 marked entry from Mill Park Newsagency, Shops 1 – 4 in The Stables Shopping Centre, 314 – 360 Childs Road in Mill Park.

Mill Park Newsagency most recently set up a division one winning TattsLotto store syndicate with 13 members in February 2015 that shared in more than $608,000.

Throughout Australia, there were 23 entries that won a division one prize of $1,347,826.09 in TattsLotto’s $31 Million Megadraw (draw 3699) on Saturday 31 December 2016.

Five of the division one winning entries were purchased in Victoria, five from Queensland, six from New South Wales, four from Western Australia, two from South Australia and one from Tasmania.
