A Drysdale man has welcomed the new financial year with a life-altering $590,000 win in the weekend’s TattsLotto draw.

The victorious Victorian held one of the nine division one winning entries in TattsLotto draw 4273 on Saturday 2 July 2022 and takes home a total prize of $592,209.00.

“Good grief!” he happily yelled when an official from The Lott confirmed his win.

“Nothing is sinking in. Is this truly real?

“I’ve been playing TattsLotto and Oz Lotto for many, many years. You could tell if you looked at how tattered my Tatts Card is. I’m glad to have finally won division one!

“I’ll make a couple of phone calls today. The family won’t believe it.”

With more than $590,000 about to land in his bank account, the joyful winner shared the prize would help him pay off some bills and get ahead.

“I’ll be able to pay off the house mortgage, which is really exciting,” he exclaimed.

“This will go a long way!”

His marked System 8 entry was purchased at Drysdale Lotto, Drysdale Village Shopping Centre, Shop 8, Wyndham Street, Drysdale.

Drysdale Lotto owner Jack Breen said news of the division one winning entry would provide a great uplift to the Bellarine Peninsula region.

“Our team at Drysdale Lotto are beyond thrilled for the local winner, and we couldn’t believe it when we initially found out,” he said.

“It creates such a buzz in the area when we sell a division one winning entry, especially with our customers and those visiting the area.

“We would like to congratulate our division one winner and hopefully we can do so face to face.”
