Coffee helps couple strike it rich

At least one Tasmanian couple will fondly remember this time in their lives.

The Hobart couple have landed nearly $1.4 million in the weekend's TattsLotto.

They were one of three division one winners across Australia from Saturday's draw.

Fate was smiling on them in more ways than one, because a spilt cup of coffee on one of their regular marked entries, meant they went for a Quickpick that had the correct loot winning numbers.

The Tranmere couple, who bought the entry at newsXpress Shoreline, plan to spend some of their retirement cruising the mainland in a caravan.
