Essendon wife predicts TattsLotto win
An Essendon man has revealed his wife predicted their TattsLotto ticket would win – but instead of scoring $10,000 as first forecast, it has delivered a prize of almost $1 million.
“We’re a couple of digits out, but I can live with that!” the man laughed when we confirmed his win.
“My wife and I just play intermittently. If we happen to be at a newsagency getting a few things, we’ll grab a ticket.
“We don’t have set numbers. We’re just those random people who play every now and then.
“My wife bought this ticket and said, ‘I think it’s going to win $10,000’.
“She felt like it was going to win… and it has!
“We’re enormously blessed already. We’ve got kids who we’re always worrying about. We’ll be able to help them and a few charities we’re passionate about.”
His winning entry was purchased at West Essendon Newsagency, 269 Buckley Street, Aberfeldie. West Essendon Newsagency owner Lindsay Crook said he was ecstatic for his latest division one winner.
“All our customers will be rapt to know we’ve had a big win,” he said.
“The last time we sold a division one winning ticket was in December 2017, so it’s great to see another one.”
