A Hampton couple are looking forward to finally building their dream beachfront home to be enjoyed for generations to come after scoring more than $797,000 in the weekend’s TattsLotto draw.
The Victorians held one of the eight division one winning entries in TattsLotto draw 4181, drawn Saturday 14 August 2021. Each division one winning entry took home a$797,532.27 prize.
Speaking with us, the jubilant winners relayed the moment they made the exciting division one win discovery.
“I never remember to check my lottery tickets but on Saturday, we’d had such a big day and when we had finally sat down, we decided to randomly take a look and see if our luck had changed,” the winning husband explained.
“Honestly, we couldn’t believe it when we scanned our ticket on The Lott app and that huge prize amount came up.
“We were stunned silent. We just sat there, dumbfounded, staring at each other.
“It was hectic.
“It’s something we’ve dreamed about happening, but we never imagined the day it would come true.
“It’s a big relief. It will make a huge difference to our life. It’s life-changing for us.”
When asked how they planned to enjoy their prize, the Melburnians had one thing in mind.
“We don’t own a house, so that’s the first thing we will do!” the winning man continued.
“It’ll be our dream - a big family home and we would love to live right on the beach! We can’t wait. We’ve been thinking about this for years and years.
“We also want to go away when we can on a big family holiday to celebrate.”
The winning marked System 8 entry was purchased at Hampton Authorised Newsagency, 345 Hampton Street, Hampton.
Hampton Authorised Newsagency manager Tim Theodore said the division one win came as a welcomed surprise.
“It’s amazing, isn’t it!” he said happily.
“It’s fantastic to know we’ve helped give back to our community – even if it’s just in a small way.
“We are so happy to hear it’s gone to a local couple, and we hope it makes a great difference to their life.
“We love hearing when our local, regular customers win big, and we can’t wait for it to happen again.
“Hopefully, this is the beginning of a winning streak. It's great to deliver these life-changing moments to our customers, especially in times like these.
“We’d love to send our congratulations to our winner, and we hope it’s made the rest of 2021 a lot better.”
