Thursday 23 August 2012 - A Rooty Hill retiree’s early morning routine of checking his Lotto numbers in the newspaper resulted in a pleasant surprise when he realised he won the $1 million division one prize in last night’s Wednesday Lotto draw.
The winner then waited for his winning phone call from NSW Lotteries to confirm the good news. The local man claimed that he always knew he would win!
“I always knew I would win Lotto one day, that’s why I kept buying tickets,” the winner laughed.
Rooty Hill’s new millionaire has been playing the same Lotto numbers on his 18 game entry for more than 15 years.
Although he had a feeling he would one day win big, he said that he does not know what he will do with his windfall just yet.
“I have a lot to think about now. I’ll keep the news quite until I decide what I’ll do with the money,” the winner added.
The Rooty Hill Wednesday Lotto winner purchased the winning ticket from Rooty Hill Newsagency at 8 Rooty Hill Road, Rooty Hill.
The winning numbers in Wednesday Lotto draw 3167, drawn on 22 August 2012 are 21, 43, 41, 22, 7 and 33. The supplementary numbers are 40 and 38.
