Massive win for Tatts online

The $40M Powerball winner from last night’s draw purchased their ticket online direct from Tatts. Anyone who has sold a major prize will know this boosts sales for the winning outlet. Online will get a boost for sure.

    One of my customers said something similar.

    And yet, why would they “rig” it at such a low jackpot? Think how many sales would be lost over the next 4 weeks as the Jackpot climbed to $100 Million.

    I (and I am sure Tatts) wanted it to continue jack potting.

    I had even planned staffing based on an expected Jackpot for next Thursday adding to the Saturday buyers getting in early.

    Shutdown any talk of rigging. It’s nonsense.

    One of my customers just realised the extra cost of tickets online…no more !!!

    The Online cost is the same as a purchase through an Agent.
    As for rigging I don’t entertain rubbish and would not in any way allow a negative comment to pass without defending the product.
    Come on people its the most unique and still for most parts agent owned product.
    Defend it don’t talk it down.

    At no time did I say I agreed with them . The “got to love it part” referred to how stupid some comments can be … Do you really think any agent would say yeah I agree with you .
