Narre Warren couple celebrate $608,000 TattsLotto win with roast dinner
A couple from Narre Warren haven’t let self-isolation curb their celebrations, enjoying a home-made roast dinner to toast their $608,000 TattsLotto division one win.
The Melbourne duo held one of the seven division one winning entries nationally in TattsLotto draw 4041, drawn Saturday 11 April 2020 and take home a division one prize of $608,714.79.
Sharing their excitement with us this afternoon, the husband recounted the moment they discovered the joyful news.
“It’s all a bit surreal!” he confessed.
“I always pick up a ticket every Saturday morning when I pop out to do the shopping and this weekend was no different.
“I have a routine of checking the ticket every Sunday morning and when I checked my ticket I couldn’t believe it!
“I’ve had lots of little wins of $40 or $50 here and there but never anything like this!”
When asked how they planned to celebrate the life-changing win, the pair revealed they had already enjoyed a delicious home cooked meal.
“We can’t go out to celebrate but we called all of our immediate family to let them know,” the wife explained.
“Since it was Easter Sunday, we had already organised to have a nice roast meal at home so we cooked that and celebrated our win as well as Easter.”
The happy couple also revealed how they planned to enjoy their windfall.
“Most of it will go towards paying off our mortgage, but that will be such a relief for us!” the wife declared.
“It will take the pressure off and we’ll be able to relax knowing we’ve paid it off.
“We’ll definitely be thinking about a fun holiday in the future too!”
The winning entry was purchased at Parkhill Berwick News & Lotto, Shop 13, 215-225 Parkhill Drive, Berwick.
