A Victorian man believes that he "manifested" his $834,000 TattsLotto division one win.
The lucky winner, who hails from Braybrook in Victoria, cited his ritual of imagining a happy, healthy and wealthy life in his old family home when purchasing Lotto tickets his secret to taking home the $834,643.56 prize.
“I’ve been playing for decades, but I have never won division one. So I actually just developed a new system for buying my tickets, and it seems like it’s come through for me!” the ecstatic winner told an official from The Lott.
“See, when I was young, I grew up in a beautiful family home in Preston. So every now and again, I drive back to that home.
"I stare at the house and dream about living in it again, and then I go to a newsagency in the area, and I buy my TattsLotto ticket,” he said.
The Baybrook man purchased his ticket from Gilberton News Post & Lotto in Preston West. He was one of seven division one winning entry tickets drawn on Saturday, July 24.
The Melbourne man said that he had just finished the “graveyard shift” at work when he checked his ticket on The Lott app and discovered he held a winning ticket.
“I was blown away! I couldn’t believe it!” said the man.
“There was no way I was going to be sleeping after seeing that. It’s amazing! He said that his financial freedom lifted a weight off his shoulders and “made this year so much better.”
When asked how he planned to spend his winnings, the Melbourne local said that he aimed to invest in his future and turn his dreams into a reality.
“Some will also go towards my future retirement, and who knows, maybe I will buy my family home in the future!” said the Lotto winner.
