Romsey’s newest millionaire


A Romsey man is counting his lucky stars after it was confirmed he won $1.2 million in last week’s Tattslotto draw.

The man held one of five division one winning tickets for the August 28 draw, which saw each holder pocket $1,247,527 in winnings.

He said he plans to use the money to pay off his mortgage and buy his first car.

“I can’t believe it! I am a millionaire,” he said.

“I honestly had no idea until I checked the ticket today! It was a big shock, and my mind was running a mile a minute.

“My wife is going to be over the moon when I break the news to her and let her know we’re millionaires!

“She probably won’t believe me at first, but then I am sure she’ll want to have a glass of wine to celebrate and get busy planning.”

The winning ticket was purchased at Romsey Supa IGA Newsagency & Lotto at 107 Main Street in Romsey.
