Tasmanians win big in weekend's Lotto

HOBART TattsLotto

A group of Tasmanians are jumping for joy, after taking out two TattsLotto prizes over the weekend.

A Launceston woman and a Hobart syndicate have each pocketed $2.1 million.

The Launceston local was on holiday when she heard the news she’s become a newly-minted multi-millionaire.

She was oblivious to her division one win until an official from The Lott made contact.

The Apple Isle resident has been playing the same numbers for 20 years, including her family's birth dates and anniversaries.

Her winning marked 15-game entry was purchased at Kings Meadows News & Lotto, 116 Hobart Road, Kings Meadows.

Kings Meadows News & Lotto owner Jeff Dolbey said the weekend win marked his outlet’s 25th division one winning entry during the past 23 years.

“It’s a nice amount too – $2 million is nothing to sneeze at!"

A 30-strong syndicate from Hobart scored Tasmania’s second TattsLotto division one win from the weekend’s draw.

In addition to winning division one, the syndicate’s 50-game System 7 entry also scored division three 6 times and division six 8 times, bolstering the group’s total prize to $2,147,718.45.

Each syndicate member won a share worth $71,609.59.

Some syndicate members held unregistered entries, they may have yet to discover they’re part of this winning group.

Lottery officials are urging Hobart players to check their TattsLotto tickets as soon as possible.

Shares into the store syndicate were purchased at Eastlands Lotto, Shop G8, Eastlands Shopping Centre, Bligh Street, Rosny Park.
