After their wedding was cancelled because of the pandemic, a Bendigo couple are finally ready to say ‘I do’ after last night discovering they’d won more than $633,000 in the weekend’s TattsLotto draw.

The Victorian couple held one of the nine division one winning entries in TattsLotto draw 4235, drawn Saturday 19 February 2022. Each scored a division one prize of $633,095.20.

This morning, we reached out to the delighted duo, who confessed they’d barely slept a wink after discovering their windfall last night.

“I didn’t look at this ticket until about midnight last night,” the winning woman relayed.

“I couldn’t stop screaming when I saw we’d won division one.

“My partner was fast asleep, snoring in bed, and my screams woke him. He jumped straight out of bed screaming, ‘What!? What!? What’s wrong!?’. It was crazy!

“We probably slept for an hour or two last night. A division one win keeps you awake for sure!

“We tried to go back to sleep, but we really struggled, so we stayed up most of the night chatting about what we’ll do with the prize. We were very excited!

“We’ve had to postpone our wedding so many times because of covid, so now this means we can have our dream wedding and our dream honeymoon!

“We’re so excited because this win just means we can live the best life together. It’s a dream come true!

“We’ve cancelled all our plans for the day and we’re going to go out for a long lunch to celebrate.

“I always knew 2022 was going to be a good year, but this just proves it!”
