Woodend Newsagency is celebrating its first division one TattsLotto prize in 10 years, after a Woodend man won $1.2 million.

Agency owner Darren Cahill said his team was excited to have sold the latest division one prize.

“We’ve sold three division one-winning entries over the past 25 years but it has been about 10 years since our last division one win,” he said.

“We’ll be sharing the news with our customers and they will be so excited and amazed to hear we’ve sold a winner.

“We are so excited for our winner and we hope they do something great with their prize.

“It is nice to give back to someone who is a regular customer of Woodend Newsagency.”

The regular player, who wished to remain anonymous, received a life-changing call on June 3, notifying him of his $1.2 million win.

He said he didn’t expect to wake up $1.2 million richer.

“It feels terrific to know I am now a millionaire,” he said.

“The news is just very good. I’ve won a few division three and division two prizes but it feels very good to have scored division one.”

He held one of three division one-winning entries across Australia.

The man said he was looking forward to sharing his success with his family and splurging on a holiday.
