Businessman, Dharam Raj, is definitely going to be cashing in more on his dairy shop business.

The 65-year-old Mr Raj of Lakeba Street, Samabula, has won himself $30,000 after playing the Fiji Tattslotto Scratch and Win game for the past eight years.

Yesterday, Mr Raj collected his cheque at Atlas Trading (Sales) Limited Store in Marks Street, Suva. Mr Raj, on July 6, had bought a scratch ticket from the Shanton Mega Variety Lotto Shop.

“I was shocked at first when I saw the three same amounts on the scratched card. I took the scratched card to the counter and showed it to the person working there. Then, I had to go through all the formalities and today I have received the cheque,” Mr Raj said.

“I have been playing scratch and win for the past eight years and I am glad that I have won this amount,” he said.

The retired Colonial War Memorial Hospital staff member plans to invest the money on his existing dairy shop in Samabula.

“I don’t want my money to be spent unnecessarily and go to waste. I will therefore invest it in my existing dairy business which is small at the moment and make it big.”
