- Two first division winners in TattsLotto
- A couple will use a $2.73 million share to pay off home
- Winners were from Victoria and the ACT
A couple pays off their mortgage and shares their newfound wealth with loved ones after a Lotto win makes them Australia’s newest multimillionaire.
A family from Drysdale, near Geelong, southwest of Melbourne, won $2.73 million as one of two first division winners in Saturday’s TattsLotto draw.
Lotto officials had to wait several days for the winners to come forward and claim their prize because their entry was not registered and the officials had no way of contacting them to tell them of their huge windfall.
“We are so excited, but so nervous at the same time,” the winning woman told officials.

“We are still trying to wrap our heads around it. There was talk of a mystery winner in Drysdale, but we didn’t think it could be us.’
“We only discovered the profit this morning. Our lives are forever changed!’
The delighted couple will use a portion of the prize money to fully own their home.
“It’s going to the mortgage and all that other boring stuff!” said the woman.
“We will definitely share the victory.”
Her husband added, “We might even be on it for 12 months so we know for sure what we’re doing!”
The winning entry was purchased from Drysdale Newsagency.
‘We were so excited to hear that we had sold a winning First Division entry in the weekend’s TattsLotto draw!’ said owner Pam Gillett.
The winning TattsLotto ticket was sold at Drysdale Newsagency near Geelong, Victoria
“This is my winning entry in the first division since taking over the news agency, so it is very exciting for my team and me.
“We have already started setting up the outlet and have shared the excitement with our customers in store and on our corporate social media channels.
“Our customers have expressed their enthusiasm with us in the hope that they will hold on to the first division winning entry.
The other first division winner was from the ACT.
