“My mind is going a mile an hour”: Cranbourne man showered with $1.25 million TattsLotto windfall
A Cranbourne man’s morning shower has been interrupted in the best way imaginable after he received a phone call from lottery officials confirming his $1.25 million TattsLotto windfall.
The Melburnian held one of the eight division one winning entries in TattsLotto draw 4377, drawn Saturday 1 July 2023. Each division one winning entry pocketed $1,250,000.00.
“That’s terrific! Thank you!” he cheered when we reached out this morning.
“I just jumped out of the shower. I need to grab my glasses to read it properly!
“My mind is going a mile an hour. I can’t process this.
“I received an email from The Lott on Sunday morning about a win.
“I decided to go for a walk outside and then checked the ticket when I came back.
“I thought it was division two or three – not division one! It’s very unexpected.
“I’ve been playing since TattsLotto was first introduced. I think I was about 18 years old. I’m now in my 60s.”
With $1.25 million about to land in his bank account, the long-time player was too stunned to make any concrete plans but had an interstate holiday in mind.
“I haven’t even thought about it. It’s such a blur!” he laughed.
“Perhaps get out of Melbourne. It’s too cold here!
“Maybe a little holiday to the Gold Coast. It’s nice and hot there.”
His winning 12-game QuickPick was purchased at Cranbourne Authorised Newsagency, 105 High Street, Cranbourne.
The Cranbourne Authorised Newsagency team said they were overjoyed for their division one winner and wished them all the best with their million-dollar win.
