Young Armstrong Creek man’s Monday interrupted by $834,000 TattsLotto division one win!
An Armstrong Creek man in his 20s has had his Monday interrupted by the revelation he scored division one in the weekend’s TattsLotto draw.
The Geelong resident held one of the seven division one winning entries in TattsLotto draw 4175, drawn Saturday 24 July 2021. Each division one winning entry takes home an $834,643.56 prize.
“I’ve only just found out,” the winner exclaimed when speaking to an official from The Lott this afternoon.
“There was a post on The Lott’s Facebook page about how you were still looking for a winner in the area. I knew I had a ticket but thought I’d wait.
“Well, that only lasted about 10 minutes. I ended up scanning the ticket on the app and there it was!
“It’s very exciting. I don’t think I’ll be able to concentrate at work today, but I’ll be back at work tomorrow, I promise!
“I haven’t played TattsLotto for about two years, but then I started again about a month ago, just getting a ticket each week.
“I don’t want to let this ticket out of my sight!”
The Victorian winner shared he looked forward to taking time to fully contemplate how he might enjoy his prize.
“It will certainly help with the mortgage and making life a little bit more comfortable,” he said.
His winning entry was purchased at NewsXpress Armstrong Creek, Warralily Village Shopping Centre, 844 Barwon Heads Road, Armstrong Creek.
NewsXpress Armstrong Creek owner Wayne Davis he was “over the moon” to see the outlet sell another division one winning entry – it's second in 12 months.
“Our customers were so excited the last time we sold a division one winning entry and I’m sure the same excitement will be buzzing around the community,” he said.
“My staff also get so ecstatic when we sell division one wondering if they are the ones that pressed the button to produce that winning ticket.
“From all of us at NewsXpress Armstrong Creek, we wish the lucky winner all the best, especially in these tough times. We are so happy we made their dreams come true and to make the rest of their lives special.
“Selling dreams and seeing them come true in the community really makes our job magical.”
