Winner says he might ‘set sail’ after division one win
A man in his 50s was away for the long weekend when he discovered his ticket in the weekend’s Saturday Lotto draw was a division one winning entry!
The excited winner is $509,966.65 richer after winning division one and other divisional prizes in the weekend’s draw.
“That’s not a bad chunk of coin!” the winner joked.
“I’m very happy. It’s incredible because I’ve never won more than $10 or $15 before. I’m going to keep it a secret for the moment so I can surprise my wife with the news!”
The winner, who has chosen to remain anonymous, said he’ll pay off the mortgage and possibly set sail on a cruise with his wife!
The winning 36-game entry was purchased online via Tatts.com.
Grandmother excited after winning division one

The exuberant winner told a NSW Lotteries official that she had a funny feeling yesterday before she discovered she’d won first division.
“I just felt different. Then my son was taking me out for lunch but I said to him to wait because I needed to check my lotto ticket,” the winner explained.
After checking her entry, the winner’s son first believed she had five winning numbers and a division three prize.
“This win is beautiful,” the excited winner said.
The registered System 7 entry was purchased from Queanbeyan Papershop, Shops 36/37 in Riverside Plaza, 131 Monaro Street, Queanbeyan.
