Player came forward after Four weeks of drawing claiming $1 million
A Leppington man came forward after four weeks of drawing to claim the winning prize of $1 million.
The player popped his winning Tattslottto ticket in a drawer and forgot about it.
The player held one of the six division one winning entries in Saturday Lotto draw 4215 which was drawn on Saturday 11 December 2021.
The winning ticket was purchased from Leppington Newsagency, Shop 6, 1469 Camden Valley way Leppington.
The player talked to the lottery officials.
There were six division one winning entries across Australia in Saturday Lotto draw 4215, drawn Saturday 11 December 2021. Each entry took home a division one prize worth $1,012,907.10.
“I had absolutely no idea! I’d seen the signs about a mystery winner, but I didn’t think anything of it,” the winning man explained when speaking with an official from The Lott.
“When I finally went to check some old lottery tickets that I had stored away in a drawer, I found out about this win.
“When the employee scanned my ticket, he bent over the table and whispered to me, ‘You’ve won the big one!’.
“I was pretty calm about it, but I was with my family, and they were jumping up and down excitedly. I think they were more excited than me!
