A Tatura couple has admitted to experiencing a wave of emotions that kept them up all night wondering if their $657,000 win in the weekend’s TattsLotto draw was a dream come true.

So far in 2023, there have been six division one winning entries in the Goulburn Valley region, collectively taking home more than $7.55 million in division one prize money.

The victorious Victorians relayed how the winning discovery came about while speaking to us this morning.

“Thank you! There’s been a lot of excitement,” the winning woman exclaimed.

“It was 5am on Sunday morning and I had checked my TattsLotto ticket.

“I couldn’t believe it and my husband couldn’t believe it. At first, he thought it was only a couple of hundred dollars.

“There were a lot of screams at 5am in the morning! We were so excited, and in a lot of disbelief.

“I was up all night wondering if the news was true. There was a lot of tossing and turning. I’m currently running on adrenaline and no sleep.

“It’s a lot of money to process. I’m just so glad to hear it’s real. I was waiting for someone to tell me it was a prank.

“My husband has always said we’ll win TattsLotto one day – he’ll always say, ‘It’s going to happen! It’s going to happen one day!’.

“We’ve been visiting the same newsagency for over 20 years. We always buy our tickets from newsXpress Tatura. They’re the best!”

“We have been dying to replace our cars and now we can. Woo-hoo!” she exclaimed.

“It’s so wonderful.”

Their winning entry was purchased at newsXpress Tatura, 138 Hogan Street, Tatura.

newsXpress Tatura owner John Lovel said he was thrilled to hear one of his local customers had won a life-changing division one prize in the weekend’s TattsLotto draw.

“We’re over the moon to have sold another division one winning entry and we know this win will be absolutely life-changing for the winner and their family,” he said.

“No matter how many division one winning entries we sell, the winning feeling never loses its excitement. Every win has its own story, and we always love hearing about it.

“We’ve helped change the lives of many customers in 20 years, and in fact, our last division one winning entry was in 2016 when someone took home division one in Powerball.


“We will be celebrating with all our customers and sharing the winning news with the community. It’s a momentous occasion and we couldn’t be happier for our winner – congratulations!”
