Take a deep breath and live for the moment. That’s the advice of Mornington Authorised Newsagency manager Peter Marshall to his latest Division 1-winning customer whose entry was one of nine across Australia to take home $555,248.73 in last Saturday night’s Tattslotto draw.

Mr Marshall said the win was great news for the community, especially during these difficult times. “It’s terrific news for our Main St customers. It puts a smile on everyone’s face. We’ve sold maybe seven or eight Division 1-winning entries during the past 25 years, and it’s been maybe three years since we last sold a Division 1-winning entry. We can’t wait to see if our customers score another one soon. We hope our winner enjoys their prize. Take a deep breath and when COVID-19 passes, live for the moment.”

The Mornington man who bought his winning ticket from Mr Marshall’s newsagency at 97 Main St said he had been playing for 30 years and had kept the same numbers “for quite a long while. They weren’t anything special, but I just stuck with them as I couldn’t be bothered changing them”.  

“I haven’t let the ticket out of my sight. It’s been pinned to my board. I keep looking at it. Did I get it wrong? Did I make a mistake? When I checked it, I was in shock. Things like this don’t really happen to me. We had a celebration last night — just at home — but I still had to front up to work today.”

The man said he had already worked out how he will use his prize. “I’ll start by paying off the mortgage, getting a new car and helping the kids out. Hopefully at some point we can travel overseas too. It will also speed up my retirement plans for sure. This will go a long way.”

The winning numbers were 16, 13, 25, 44, 40 and 20; the supplementary numbers were 4 and 28. There were four Division 1 winners from Victoria, two from NSW, two from WA and one from Queensland.
