A leisurely stroll past a local newsagency has now become an unforgettable memory for a Caulfield man after the TattsLotto ticket he purchased on a whim delivered him a $670,000 windfall.

The Melburnian held one of the 10 division one winning entries nationally in TattsLotto 4391, drawn Saturday 19 August 2023 and took home a total division one prize of $676,772.50.

“It’s truly remarkable,” he exclaimed when we confirmed the newfound fortune.

“I’ve been playing on and off for years now. It’s not a regular occurrence – just now and then.

“I was walking past the newsagency in Caulfield and decided to treat myself to a ticket. It was a spur-of-the-moment.

“We will keep this win very private but will undoubtedly celebrate under wraps!”

The Victorian resident looks forward to starting a new chapter as he sets his sights on a new place to call home.

“We’re hoping to find a new family home, whether it’s an apartment or a house,” he shared.

“But for now, we will enjoy his win and the sunshine!”

His winning System entry was purchased at Caulfield Authorised Newsagency, 14 Derby Road, Caulfield East.

Caulfield Authorised Newsagency owner Kieran Duggan said he was feeling exhilarated to have surprised and delighted another customer with a division one win.

“We were certainly happy to have sold the division one winning entry and we’re sure our winner is over the moon with their discovery,” he said.

“We’ve decorated our store with plenty of balloons and streamers to celebrate our success. This is a monumental moment for our newsagency.

“Caulfield Authorised Newsagency first opened in 1991 and we’ve graced many customers with lottery loots over the 32 years, and we will continue to do so for years to come!

“On behalf of Caulfield Authorised Newsagency we would like to congratulate our division one winner on their success and wish them all the best with their life-changing win.”
