A legendary Melburnian has had an absolute ripping start to his week, learning that he won a share of division one in Saturday night's TattsLotto draw.
When he was phoned this morning to tell him of his $985,744.11 win, he didn't let the news get in the way of his work, putting the phone down to serve a customer during the phone call.
His entry was one of four entries that each won a division one prize..
The bloke, who wishes to remain anonymous, was understandably in disbelief when told of his win.
“I’m sorry – can you repeat that number again?” when he returned to the phone call after helping his customer out.
As the news of the win sunk in, he couldn’t determine how he would spend his TattsLotto windfall.
“I have no idea! My mind is blank! I’ve never really thought that I would win such a large amount," he said.
“I will have to discuss it with my wife!”
What a way to start your week!
