NOVEMBER 4, 2012, will be the day a Suva man will cherish for the rest of his life.

Having bought a system eight ticket from Fiji Tattslotto, he checked his numbers against the $A21million ($F38.7m) lotto draw win on television that night and realised he had won $A3million ($F5.5m).

Fiji Tattslotto resident executive director Graeme Brown said the anonymous 40-year-old winner was excited when he found out he had won. "He was obviously quite surprised. He saw it being announced on TV and he and his wife did not sleep the whole night. He called me the next day at 7.30am," Mr Brown said.

There were 12 winners from the Super Draw. Mr Brown said the winner would get his win within a fortnight. "It has been very successful. There have been tremendous amounts of prizes," Mr Brown said. Winners usually get their spoils within a fortnight, so the lucky Suva man may receive his money by the end of this week.

The next big lotto will be the $A30million ($F55.2m) mega draw on December 29.
