Twenty Monbulk shoppers are sporting winning smiles today after their syndicate scored division one in the weekend’s TattsLotto draw.

The store syndicate, called Winning One, with 20 members held one of the two division one winning entries in TattsLotto draw 4385 on Saturday 29 July 2023. Each division one winning entry scored $2,583,769.64.

In addition to scoring division one, the syndicate’s System entry also scored division two 6 times, division three 12 times, division four 45 times and division five 20 times, bolstering the group’s total prize to $2,666,931.39.

Each of the 20 syndicate members receives a share worth $133,346.57.

However, some members of the winning Victorian syndicate may have yet to realise their good fortune, prompting us to urge players to check their tickets as soon as possible.

Shares into the winning syndicate were purchased at Monbulk Authorised Newsagency, 76 Main Street, Monbulk.

Monbulk Authorised Newsagency manager Martyn Woodbridge said it was a surreal feeling when he first found out his outlet had sold a division one winning syndicate.

“It will be just like a party all week with balloons in-store and we won’t want it to ever end,” he said.

“We’ve sold about 16 division one winning entries over 20 years now. The last one was in October last year so it’s great to have another one.

“As this was a syndicate win, I’m sure that most winners will already know, but there will be a few that won’t know until Friday or Saturday when they come to put their tickets on for next week.

“There is a mix of young and old people in this syndicate, so I hope the shock won’t hurt too much to handle!

“Enjoy the win, celebrate the way you want to and just enjoy life.”
