An Altona Meadows man confessed he knew of his win in the weekend’s TattsLotto draw as soon as he saw his marked numbers in the paper on Sunday morning.

The Melbournian held one of the 12 division one winning entries in TattsLotto draw 4295, drawn Saturday, 17 September 2022 and takes home a life-enhancing $479,354.52.
