A Cairnlea couple spent the weekend celebrating after winning $515,000 in Saturday’s TattsLotto draw.

The happy winners held one of the 10 division one winning entries n worth $502,546.00

As well as winning the coveted division one prize, their ticket also won them division three 12 times and division four 15 times, bolstering their total prize to $515,296.90.

The happy husband said he had been playing the same numbers for decades.

“My wife and I have been playing these numbers every week since TattsLotto started,” he said.

“We were just at home on Sunday morning and my wife checked the numbers. When she told me we’d won I didn’t believe it.

“We called the kids straight over and we celebrated with a couple of drinks. We’ve been celebrating all weekend.”

He said it was nice to be able to celebrate some happy news during troubled times.

“We’ll share it with our family, but we’ll save a little something for us as well.

“We can’t go overseas at the moment, but we’ll certainly be planning an overseas holiday for the future!”

The winning entry was purchased at Cairnlea News and Lotto on Furlong Road, Cairnlea.
