A Mernda man is one step closer to unlocking the door to his dream home after scoring $960,000 in the weekend’s TattsLotto draw.

The Melburnian held one of the 11 division one winning entries in TattsLotto draw 4327, drawn Saturday 7 January 2023 and takes home a total division one prize of $968,260.01.

Confirming his division one win with us this morning, the victorious Victorian explained he was still coming to terms with the news.

“It’s so exciting – such great news!” he cheered.

“I’m still trying to process the winning news. I discovered the win on Sunday morning, but I still can’t get over it.

“I’ve been playing for a while, but only recently decided to give bigger entries a go.

“I’ve dreamt of winning division one, and now it’s happened. I hope this gives other players hope that you can win big one day!

“I can now look at saying goodbye to renting and owning my very own dream home.

“The only other person who knows about the win is my brother. He’s very stoked.

“We’re going to celebrate together and share a bottle of champagne.

“Maybe I’ll throw a party to celebrate when I purchase my new home. Who knows!

“What a great way to start 2023!”

The winning man who wishes to stay anonymous, purchased his winning System 14 entry online at thelott.com – the official home of Australia’s lotteries.
