Coburg grandfather looking forward to spoiling the grandkids with TattsLotto win
A Coburg man has confessed he can’t wait to spoil the grandchildren whose birthdates inspired the numbers that scored him division one in the weekend’s TattsLotto draw.
The loving grandfather held one of the 14 division one winning entries nationally in TattsLotto draw 4127, drawn Saturday 6 February 2021. Each entry takes home a division one prize worth $428,018.10.
As well as scoring the coveted division one prize, the happy man’s System 8 marked entry also scored him division three 12 times and division four 15 times, bolstering his total prize to $433,147.35.
The ecstatic winner was oblivious to his good fortune until we phoned him to break the exciting news.
“No way! Jesus Christ! Thank you very very much!” he exclaimed.
“I hadn’t even looked at my ticket. I had no idea.
“I never think I am going to win, so I only check my tickets at the end of the week.
“I’ve been playing those numbers for a while. They are my grandchildren’s birth dates.
“I can’t wait to call them all and tell them the good news!”
When asked how he planned to enjoy his division one win, the thrilled winner said he couldn’t wait to retire early and spend his retirement spoiling his family.
“I’ve got lots of people to share it with! My children and grandchildren and family overseas!” he declared.
“I’ll be able to help them all.
“I’m too old to keep it all to myself, and I’m lucky I’ve already got enough to get me through.
“Although I do think I’ll be able to retire a bit earlier now!”
The winning entry was purchased online at thelott.com – Australia’s official lotteries.
