Portland produces yet another millionaire!

More than $5 million in Lotto winnings have poured into Portland residents’ pockets within just two years, with the city’s latest millionaire made at the weekend.
A Portland man is the most recent division one local residing in the city after he won $1,002,288.51 in TattsLotto draw 3735 on Saturday 6 May 2017.
Portland’s newest millionaire purchased his winning TattsLotto ticket from McGee’s Lotto, Cards & Gifts, 102 Percy Street in Portland, with just 12-games using numbers he’d marked and recorded to his Tatts Card.
Thanks to registering his entry to his Tatts Card, officials were able to break the dream-come-true news about his new millionaire status to him early on Monday morning.
While thrilled at the windfall, he requested to keep his story quiet and his identity anonymous.
The win is the latest in a spate of Portland division one wins during the past two years sold at McGee’s Lotto, Cards & Gifts.
In TattsLotto draw 3531 on Saturday 23 May 2015, McGee’s sold a TattsLotto ticket that won a division one prize worth more than $1.021 million and less than one month later in Powerball draw 995 on Thursday 11 June 2015 another customer won more than $3 million in division one prize money.
Tony McGee is the owner of McGee’s Lotto, Cards & Gifts and is proud as punch of his outlet’s winning streak, touting 33 division one wins over the years.
“We’ve got quite a good reputation as a lucky lottery outlet here in Portland and further across western Victoria, with the windfall this weekend cracking our 33rd division one win!” Mr McGee exclaimed.
“To know a Portland local is our latest millionaire is fantastic news for our small community. We’re all on a bit of a high this morning!
“Wacko! We’ve already done up the window with our exciting news! We’re not backwards about coming forward here!” he laughed.
“Portland’s done it again and I think there will be more to come! There’s $50 million on offer in Powerball this Thursday so it could be us who sells the winning ticket if our track record is anything to go by!”
