Ten Melbourne lottery players have found a pot of gold worth $740,000 after their syndicate nicknamed ‘Lucky Rainbow’ scored them a division one win in the weekend’s TattsLotto draw.
The syndicate entry was one of seven division one winning entries nationally in TattsLotto draw 4087, drawn Saturday 19 September 2020, and takes home a division one prize of $740,461.20.
As well as winning the division one prize, the syndicate’s marked System 8 entry also won division three 18 times and division four 51 times, bolstering the syndicate’s total prize to $758,445.75.
Each syndicate member receives a share worth $75,844.58.
Shares in the syndicate were purchased at two outlets in the northern suburbs of Melbourne, Highland News & Lotto, Shop 17, Stockland Highlands, 300 Grand Boulevard, Craigieburn and Thomastown News & Lotto, 223 High Street, Thomastown.
Highland News & Lotto manager Kevin Ung said he was very excited to discover his outlet had sold shares in a division one winning syndicate.
“I’m very excited for our winners!” he exclaimed.
“This syndicate is called Lucky Rainbow, and we’ve been running it in our store since May.
“The phone has not stopped ringing since our customers discovered they’ve won. While we can’t celebrate all together due to COVID-19, I look forward to restrictions lifting so we can celebrate later.
“My customers are very loyal to our store, and I feel very privileged to be able to sell them a winning ticket.
“This is the third division one winning entry we’ve sold this year that has been part of a syndicate.
“Nothing else can compare to the feeling of selling a division one winning entry!
“Congratulations to all of our winners. We wish them all the very best!”
The Lott spokesperson Bronwyn Spencer said some syndicate members held unregistered entries and might have yet to discover their winning news.
“It’s fair to say these syndicate members have had a great start to their week by pocketing over $75,000 each!” she exclaimed.
“While we’ll be reaching out to those syndicate members who registered their entries to their Tatts Cards, there are many syndicate members who have unregistered entries and may not yet know they’re part of this winning group.
“If you purchased a share in a syndicate for the most recent TattsLotto draw, today’s the day to check it! If you discover you’re holding a winning share, call Tatts on 131 868 to start the prize claim process!”
