TattsLotto Have Your  say

ANOTHER instant millionaire is planning to hit the road in a brand new caravan.

The would-be adventurer has joined the growing number of caravanners and would-be caravanners who have scooped their fortunes on the lotto in the last couple of years.

The latest winner, a retired Victorian woman, plans to realise her dream and will buy a caravan to embark on a round-Australia adventure with her husband after scooping a whopping $2.5 million in Saturday's TattsLotto draw.

"I've always wanted to get the car and a caravan and just go everywhere ... all the way up north and all the way around," the jubilant woman said.

"We thought we'd only be able to go for three months and we'd have to hire a caravan. Now we'll be able to buy a brand new one and go for as long as we like! We'll be able to relax knowing we will be looked after into our retirement."

She bought her ticket from Foodworks Dalton Village at Epping.

The winning numbers were 43, 22, 1, 4, 3 and 41, while the supplementary numbers were 24 and 25.

Owner Lasanta Fernando said he was thrilled to have sold a division one winning entry.

"We wish her the best with her prize and wish her a wonderful future! We hope she enjoys every moment of her win," he added.

Previous Aussie lotto winners include a couple of grey nomads from the Gold Coast who collected a cool $10 million. And a few months later they landed a further $150,000 with a $10 Instant Scratch-Its ticket.

Another grey nomad from NSW was "ecstatic" with her $985,744.11 lotto win while a Pambula caravanner landed $1000 a month for the next five years on a $5 Live the Life Instant Scratch-Its ticket.

A Hastings Point couple travelling around Australia collected $621,000 after mistakenly buying a different ticket from their normal one.

Lotto and Keno's head of public relations Matt Hart admitted that caravanners were a lucky bunch.

"Yes, I have to say caravanning and travelling around Australia is definitely a big feature of division one winners," he told Caravanning News.
