Winning feeling

IT was celebrations all round after two Morwell women’s shared TattsLotto entry won a division one prize worth about $1.17 million.

The pair said their friendship was founded long ago but sustained by a mutual love of playing lotto and taking turns to purchase their shared entry in Superdraws.

“I know when there’s a big draw coming up because I can expect a text from her saying ‘your turn’,” one of the winning women said.

“During the draw I was sitting on the couch circling the winning numbers on our ticket when I realised we had six whole circles on it.

“It was a sickly-sweet feeling with all the nerves and excitement so I phoned her straight away with the news.”

She said it would make retirement more comfortable.

“We’re both hard-working couples with our feet firmly on the ground, so it’s life-changing and it’s a lot of money, even split in two,” she said.

The winning women, who wish to remain anonymous, purchased their division one winning 50-game QuickPick entry in TattsLotto’s $20 Million Valentine’s Superdraw from Mid Valley Lotto, Kiosk 2 in the Mid Valley Shopping Centre.
