Almost a month after the winning numbers were drawn, a Greensborough couple today discovered they scored more than $2.3 million in TattsLotto’s New Year’s Eve Megadraw. 

The Melbourne residents held one of the 17 division one winning entries in TattsLotto draw 4221 on Friday 31 December 2021. Each division one winning entry scored $2,352,941.18.

“I’ve had this ticket in my hot little hands all this time but hadn’t checked it,” the winning woman laughed. 

“I just handed it over in the outlet and asked them to check it. They said, ‘you’d better come to the side here’, and quietly showed me the prize! 

“I could not believe it. 

“You talk about winning these things, but think it will never happen. 

“I got home and told my husband, ‘we’re not pensioners anymore, honey!’. 

“I’m so happy! “I’m holding on tight to this ticket. I still think it can disappear in a puff. 

“It will make a huge difference to our retirement, and we’d love to surprise our adult kids and help them out. 

“It’s certainly a family bonus for the new year!” 

The winning entry was purchased at Lucky Lotto Greensborough, Kiosk 4, Level 2 Greensborough Plaza, 25 Main Street, Greensborough. 

Lucky Lotto Greensborough co-owner David Rodger said he was thrilled their winning customer had discovered their good fortune. 

“What a great start to the year! It’s also fantastic to share some good news to the staff who have all stuck around through pandemic closures,” he said. 

“We’ve owned the business since 2011, and in that time, we’ve now sold four individual division one winning tickets, but we’ve also sold shares into division one winning syndicates about once a year on average.

“We have a lot of long-time customers who remember us selling quite a few division one wins, and inevitably they all ask, ‘When are you going to sell me the winner?’.

"Our customers who win big create a great vibe with the staff and it’s fun.”
