“It’s just surreal!”: Two Sale friends share TattsLotto division one win

Two best friends from Sale have begun celebrating after discovering they held a division one winning entry in the weekend’s TattsLotto draw.

The long-running private syndicate held one of the seven division one winning entries nationally in TattsLotto draw 3943 on Saturday. Each division one winning entry gets a division one prize of $573,863.51.

In addition to winning division one, the syndicate’s marked System 8 entry also won division three 12 times and division four 15 times, bolstering its total win to $586,529.81.

When a Tatts official made contact with the syndicate leader yesterday, she couldn’t contain her excitement over the win.

“It was a great surprise!” she exclaimed.

“Every Sunday I go through the numbers and check the ticket. When I sat at the table and checked the numbers, I couldn’t belief it. I froze! I thought it was some kind of joke.

“I had to get someone to check. I said ‘tell me I’m not imagining them’.

“It’s just wonderful!”

The Sale resident explained the syndicate had been running for more than three decades and used special numbers, such as birthdates, on its entries.

“When I rang my friend to tell them, they just didn’t believe me,” she laughed.

When asked how she might use her share of the TattsLotto win, the syndicate leader said her prize would be handy for some long-planned home renovations.

“It’s just surreal,” she said.

The syndicate purchased its winning marked System 8 entry at Raymond Street Lotto.

It’s the second time in 10 months the outlet has sold a TattsLotto division one winning entry.

Across Australia, there were seven division one winning entries in TattsLotto draw 3943, two each from Victoria, Tasmania and Western Australia, and one from New South Wales.
