Mernda man reduced to tears by $1 million TattsLotto surprise
A Mernda man’s weekend has been rocked by the revelation he’s now a millionaire after winning division one in TattsLotto.
The Melburnian held one of the five division one winning entries in TattsLotto draw 4359 on Saturday 29 April 2023. His total prize was $1,052,598.23.
When we reached out to the winner, he was completely oblivious to his good fortune.
“I’m about to cry here!” he exclaimed when the enormity of his win was revealed.
“Holy s***! Holy crap! Thank you so much!
“I’m just all over the place. This is fantastic!
“I only started playing TattsLotto two weeks ago. I thought, ‘let’s see how we go’, and now you’re calling me.
“I said at the time, ‘wouldn’t it be funny if I won?’.
“This is absolutely fantastic timing. We’ve been wanting to buy a house in the area, and now we can!"
