Hanmer Valley Retailer Spotlight: Speedy Lotto
How long have you had your store?
I’ve had Speedy Lotto since 2008 but been working here since 1996.
What is your favourite product or offer you have right now?
Favourite product would have to be the scratch tickets. I’ve had many big winners on them, ranging from $5,000 to $1 million!
What do you love most about being in business in Hanmer?
I would have to say the people. For the most part, it is the friendliest part of the city I’ve ever worked in.
Do you have a favourite story about a great customer?
Not one in particular, but my favourite stories are when a customer checks their ticket and they’re a big winner without them being aware of it. This year alone, I’ve had a $260,000 and $100,000 winners validated here and they had no clue they were big winners. Also sold a $75,000 winner on a $3 scratch ticket this year. Since I’ve owned this location, we’ve had 10 winners of $5,000 or more, all but 3 of them coming from scratch tickets!
