Clayton couple score $1 million TattsLotto prize on their wedding anniversary!
A Clayton couple celebrated two things on the weekend - their wedding anniversary and winning $1 million in TattsLotto using the special numbers picked when they got married.
The Victorians held one of the six division one winning entries nationally in TattsLotto draw 4205, drawn Saturday 6 November 2021. Each division one winning entry scored $1,015,392.69.
Speaking with us this morning, the happy mum explained she was still struggling to comprehend the life-changing news.
“I’ve just finished the school drop off. I think I know why you’re calling, though,” she giggled nervously.
“Is it a joke? Please tell me it’s real!
“I checked my account on Sunday and saw the win then. I thought it was a joke, and so I showed my husband, and he also thought it was a joke or some kind of prank.
“We called our parents and told them, and they didn’t believe us either.
“We were all so gobsmacked! It’s such an awesome surprise. It changes everything!
“I am still in shock now. I can’t believe it. This is just incredible. We’re millionaires!
“We picked these numbers about a decade ago when we got married, and last week we also celebrated our anniversary, so it feels like it was meant to be.
“We feel so incredibly blessed. We are very lucky! This is life-changing.”
When asked how they planned to enjoy their windfall, the Melbourne woman thought of her loved ones first.
“We want to give some of it to our siblings and our parents,” she shared.
“It’s going to help us so much, and then we will be able to help our families too, which is just the greatest thing. They’ve all supported us so much over the years, so we can’t wait to spoil them a little.
“This will also mean we can pay off our mortgage, get a new-ish car, and we can take our family on a holiday.
“It’s been pretty tough here in Melbourne for the past few years, and obviously we haven’t been able to travel. But now we can go anywhere we like!”
