A Darwin resident or visitor has kick-started the week over $1.4 million richer after scoring division one in the weekend’s TattsLotto draw – they just don’t know it yet.

The mystery winner held one of the seven division one winning entries nationally in TattsLotto draw 4119, drawn Saturday 9 January 2020. Each entry takes home a division one prize worth $1,428,571.43.

However, the winning entry is unregistered, which means officials from The Lott have no way of contacting the winner to break the life-changing news. Instead, they’re waiting for the ticketholder to come forward to claim their prize.

The winning entry was purchased at Bardens Pharmacy, Shop 1, 47 Cavenagh Street, Darwin.

Bardens Pharmacy manager Ashleigh Hutson said she was thrilled to have sold another division one winning entry.

“Wahoo! We’ve done it again! Bardens is the Nothern Territory’s first win of 2021!” she exclaimed.

“There is a lot of hype in-store today with our staff spreading the cheer with all of our customers.

“Our customers will be delighted to hear we’ve sold a division one winning entry.

“We don’t sell them that often so people will be thrilled to hear we’ve had some luck.

“We’ve sold three division one winning entries over the past six years; the last was about five years ago.

“We hope the winner checks their ticket soon so we can celebrate with them!”

The Lott spokesperson Bronwyn Spencer said she was eager to unite the top end’s latest division one winner with their prize.

“It’s likely this winner has been going about their weekend as normal with no idea they’ve just won $1.4 million!” she said.

“We’re urging all players who purchased a TattsLotto ticket from Bardens Pharmacy to check their tickets today.

“Imagine how exciting it would be to realise you’ve just won $1.4 million in the first month of the year. Your plans for 2021 would certainly change with those extra digits in your bank account!

“Make sure you check your ticket, which could be in your wallet, handbag, fridge door or car glovebox, because the winner could be you and you could be planning what to do with your prize too!

“If you discover you are holding the winning ticket, contact The Lott on 131 868 to begin the process of claiming your prize.”

The winning numbers in TattsLotto draw 4119 on 9 January 2021 were 9, 22, 34, 20, 7, and 45, while the supplementary numbers were 12 and 10.
