A Trafalgar woman’s decision to switch up her favourite lottery numbers has paid off after she landed a $530,000 TattsLotto win in the weekend’s draw.
The West Gippsland resident held one of the 10 division one winning entries in TattsLotto draw 4277 drawn Saturday 16 July 2022 and took home a total prize of $537,814.32.
In addition to the Trafalgar woman, 10 Moe lottery players also scored a division one prize in the same TattsLotto draw with their long-running store syndicate.
“Wow, I’m still trying to process it all in my head!” the Trafalgar winner laughed when we confirmed the life-enhancing prize.
“I was in Melbourne and I checked my TattsLotto ticket at one of the newsagencies while I was there.
“The team member who scanned my ticket couldn’t quite figure out why it was telling me to go to The Lott head office, and neither could I!

“I decided to go back to Trafalgar Newsagency where I’d initially purchased the ticket and check the ticket there. That’s when they told me I was the division one winner they were looking for!

“I was so excited. It’s still sinking in!”
When asked how she would enjoy her newfound fortune, the division one winner revealed it would go towards a long-overdue holiday.
“My husband and I have been itching to go on a holiday around Australia!” she shared.
“I think it’s time!”
Her winning entry was purchased at Trafalgar Newsagency, 97 Princes Highway, Trafalgar.
The Trafalgar Newsagency team said the division one win was incredible news for the community and they hoped their winner enjoyed their prize.
