$30m draw has Tatts agents on the run

BORDER lotto players will have their tickets in hand and eyes glued to the television tonight hoping to hear their numbers called out.

The Tattslotto draw may be responsible for some resolutions coming true this new year for those who win or share the $30 million jackpot.

Wodonga Tatts and Greetings owner Paul McKenzie-McHarg said business at his store had been “hectic”.

“There’s always plenty of interest,” he said.

“This is a mega draw and the biggest one of the year.”

Mr McKenzie-McHarg said he always told people “it’s hard to win but it’s a lot harder to win without a ticket”.

He said customers have lined up over the past seven weeks to purchase their tickets in tonight’s draw.

“We’ve had 46 division winners over the years so there’s a chance we could have a winner,” Mr McKenzie-McHarg said.

He will also be pencilling the time of the draw into his schedule.

Mr McKenzie-Mc Harg expected a last minute rush on entry sales today.

“These mega draws are great,” he said.

“They create a lot of interest and a lot of business.

“It is a very hectic time — while everyone is winding down from Christmas and the new year, we are winding up.”

He said the build-up was the same every year and it ended with a “big crescendo” on the night.

The draw will be at 8.30pm on Prime.
