TWO factory workers from Melbourne's west have won almost $500,000 in Lotto using a set of numbers that came to one of them in a dream. The man, from the Mel- bourne suburb of Sun- shine, said he dreamed last Monday night that he won Tattslotto. When he woke, he re- membered nine numbers and wrote them down. "Normally I take an 18-game entry costing $8, but I was so sure that six of those numbers would win that I persuaded my uncle, with whom I work in a factory, to share an entry costing more than $35," he said. Six of the numbers came up on Saturday night, winning the man and his uncle $499,643.51. "I was amazed to see the numbers in the draw on TV but I think my uncle was even more amazed," the man said. The pair, who wanted to remain anonymous, planned to pay off their mortgages with the prize- money. AAP
