After a Mount Waverly man discovered he’d won $1.8 million in the weekend’s TattsLotto draw, his head was spinning, his stomach was in knots, and he could barely stand up.

The Victorians held one of the 11 division one winning entries across Australia in TattsLotto draw 4257 on Saturday, 7 May 2022. Each entry scored a division one prize of $1,818,181.82.

“I can’t believe I’m a millionaire! This is very good. It’s amazing,” he giggled when speaking with us.

“I only found out yesterday afternoon. I logged into The Lott app to see how my ticket did in the TattsLotto draw.

“I thought it was some joke or a mistake. I couldn’t believe it!

“My head was spinning. My stomach was in knots. I almost fell over! It was a shock.

“It felt too good to be true. I’d been dreaming of that moment for years.

“My friends came over last night with a bottle of wine to celebrate, and I started making some plans for my win.

“It’s a massive win for me. I’m very excited. It’s going to change everything!

“I’ll use this prize to buy myself a car, and I’d love to go to Europe shortly.

“I’ll save the rest for my future retirement.  I might even change jobs until then! Who knows?

“It’s allowing me to re-evaluate my life completely. It’s beautiful.”

The winner purchased his 36-game QuickPick entry online at – the official home of Australia’s lotteries.
