Online Tickets Win Big In TattsLotto
2 min read
Two TattsLotto winners have scored Division 1 prizes with online tickets in past Saturday draws. Buying tickets online is not only convenient and secure; the odds of winning lotto are exactly the same across all purchasing methods. There’s never been a better time to play lotto online!
The first winner is expecting an early retirement after winning over $683,000 in the $4,000,000 TattsLotto draw on the 4th of June. The man from Launceston, who purchased his System 7 ticket online, told lottery officials that it was “unbelievable news”.
He said he would now be able to reduce his hours at the hospital where he currently works full-time with an eye towards retiring in the near future. But first he intends to pay off his mortgage and assist his children with deposits for a home of their own.
“After that, there’ll still be a bit of change left over,” he said, adding that he planned to use it to enjoy his favourite hobby – camping! “I’ve been lusting after a camping trailer but the one I really love is fairly pricey, so it just wasn’t on the cards before. Now it’s a done deal!” He said he had a favourite spot to camp but now it would be “even better” with all the “little extras”.
There were five other Division 1 winners in that draw; three located in Victoria, one located in New South Wales, and one located in Queensland. The winning numbers from TattsLotto draw 3639 were 26, 38, 27, 43, 12 and 3 plus supplementary numbers 44 and 16.
The second winner purchased his 50-game Standard ticket online and won over $1.3 million in the $4,000,000 TattsLotto draw on the 28th of May. The man from Tennant Creek in the Northern Territory said he’d be keeping the news “a bit hush-hush” but that it was the best news he’d ever had.
He was unaware that he was a new millionaire until lottery officials called him at work the following Monday to confirm the win – and it was “the best phone call” of all time. “That’s just awesome!” he said at the time. “It’s just amazing!” He rushed home after work to check his online lotto account and sure enough, he had matched all six winning numbers in the 47th game out of 50.
The lucky winner said there was no doubt that the news of a mystery millionaire would spread quickly in a small town like Tennant Creek, so he planned to only share the good news with his immediate family. The windfall will mainly be used to pay off his house, car, and bills, and to make some home improvements.
“I think a holiday is certainly on the cards!” he added.
There were two other Division 1 winners in that draw; one located in Victoria and one located in New South Wales. The winning numbers from TattsLotto draw 3637 were 42, 35, 37, 1, 34 and 21 plus supplementary numbers 26 and 11.
