Champagne celebration for Victorian woman after $1.4 million TattsLotto windfall

A hard-working Narre Warren woman popped the cork on a champagne bottle immediately after discovering she’d won division one in the weekend’s TattsLotto $21 Million Superdraw!

The ecstatic woman admitted she was stunned by the $1.4 million windfall and had been sweating by the phone waiting for a Tatts official to confirm her win.

Her registered entry was one of 15 nationally, and one of two in Victoria, that won a share of TattsLotto $21 Million Superdraw on Saturday 24 June 2017.

“I can’t believe it! You never think it’s really going to happen and it has!” she laughed.

“I checked it at home and we just couldn’t believe it. We thought someone was playing a really good joke on us!

“We looked at it about 20 million times and then we had champagne for breakfast to celebrate!

“It’s just amazing.”

While waiting for Tatts to phone her to confirm the win, the regular player admitted she hadn’t dared dream how she would spend her $1.4 million windfall.

“I’ve got no idea. I didn’t want to get my hopes up just in case,” she said.

“It will be a big help just not stressing about money as much.”

The woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased her registered 24-game QuickPick entry from Sporting Chance, Kiosk 1, 55 Hallam Road, Hampton Park.

Sporting Chance staff member Louise Bunting said word had quickly spread around the community that the outlet had sold another division one winning entry.

The outlet has sold seven division one winning entries during the past eight years, including two Powerball entries in 2009 and 2011 worth $3 million and $10 million respectively.

“It’s fantastic news to sell another division one ticket! Everyone says to us ‘what’s your secret?’ We don’t know what it is, but we’re happy our customers are becoming millionaires!” she exclaimed.

“We’ve had a lot of people coming into the outlet today enquiring about who the division one winner might be.

“Congratulations to our winner! I hope they enjoy their windfall!”

The six winning numbers in TattsLotto draw 3749 on Saturday 24 June 2017 were 29, 43, 5, 13, 32 and 1. The supplementary numbers were 40 and 38.

Across Australia there were 15 division one winning entries in the $21 Million Superdraw, with each taking home a division one prize of $1.4 million. The winning entries included two from Victoria, five from New South Wales, two from Queensland, one from South Australia, two from the Northern Territory and three from Western Australia.

The Lott’s division one winning tally has now reached 404 so far this financial year, including 159 won by Tatts customers.
