Local outlet celebrates another big prize
Colac Lotto is celebrating another division one winner, after a ticket purchased in town won $686,749.11 on the weekend.
It is the second winning division one ticket sold from the outlet in four weeks, after a local Mum won more than $2 million dollars in March.
The six winning numbers in the Tatts Lotto draw 3729 were 40, 26, 15, 44, 3 and 32. The supplementary numbers were 16 and 41.
The latest Colac winner realised he'd won while watching the TattsLotto draw on Saturday night.
The man, a retiree who wishes to remain anonymous, couldn't believe it at first.
“I thought someone was having a lend of me. I didn’t believe it! I read the numbers and went over to my wife and gave her a copy of the numbers and said ‘I’ll read out what we’ve got’. She didn’t believe me either!”
He says the winnings will make life easier for the family.
“We’ll share some of the money with our children, but also buy ourselves a new car to help us get around."
