Mentone man’s dream comes true with $660,000 TattsLotto windfall
A Mentone man has attributed his $660,000 win in the weekend’s TattsLotto draw to a decade-old dream that revealed his winning lottery numbers.
The Melburnian held one of the eight division one winning entries in TattsLotto draw 4369, drawn Saturday 3 June 2023 and took home a total prize of $666,605.06.
The long-time player discovered his windfall on Sunday morning and was left pinching himself the entire day.
“It’s a beautiful feeling. I can’t even describe it,” he laughed.
“The ticket is sitting in my pocket. It’s not going anywhere!
“I checked the ticket on Sunday morning, and I was doubting if it was real.
“I’ve been playing the same numbers for over 11 years – they came up in a dream!
“I’m still pinching myself. It’s all fuzzy!”
With the newfound fortune about to boost his bank account before the end of the financial year, the victorious Victorian shared the prize would bring him closer to retirement.
“I’ll definitely put it in the bank for the first six months,” he said.
“I’m close to retirement too and this will bring it even closer!
