Torquay man to go house-hunting with TattsLotto windfall!

A man from the seaside town of Torquay will have an eagle eye on the housing market after winning more than half-a-million-dollars in the weekend’s TattsLotto draw!

The overjoyed man said he was having a great morning today and that’s what prompted him to check his TattsLotto ticket at a newsagent.

“Ah beauty!” the man exclaimed when Tatts confirmed his $509,614.77 division one windfall.

“A few things went well for me this morning so I thought I better go check my TattsLotto! This has topped it all off for sure!”

The regular TattsLotto player was most excited about what the windfall would mean for his lifestyle.

“I might be able to get my house early now! I’m living in a unit but it’s just too small for us now and so I’ve been looking for something bigger for over a year now but money has always been a big consideration,” he explained.

“Now I can make some serious offers and do some serious house-hunting!”

The man, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his division one winning 12-game marked entry from Anglesea News & Lotto, Shop 19, 87 – 89 Great Ocean Road in Anglesea.

Anglesea News & Lotto owner Paul Nigro was thrilled to have sold his first division one winning TattsLotto ticket since taking over ownership of the outlet in late 2015.

“This is great news! We were so delighted when we discovered we’d sold a division one prize,” Mr Nigro said.

“We want to send a big congratulations to our first division one winning customer.

“It’s great news and has been well received in the local community – in fact it’s been the talk of the town.

“We’ve sold a few division two winning entries so it’s great to crack the big one! All the staff are so excited about the news!

“We’re hoping the next one will be just around the corner, perhaps even tomorrow night, so we can have even more customers celebrating division one wins.”

Throughout Australia, there were eight entries that won a first division prize of $509,614.77 in the weekend’s TattsLotto draw on Saturday 28 January, 2017.

Along with the division one winning entry purchased in Anglesea there were four other division one winning entries purchased in Victoria and one each in Queensland, Tasmania and South Australia.

The winning numbers in TattsLotto draw 3707 Saturday 28 January, 2017 were 19, 6, 37, 28, 10 and 40. The supplementary numbers were 33 and 8.

The weekend’s winners take the Lott’s division one winners tally to 243 so far this financial year, including 98 won by Tatts customers.
