Monday 24 December 2012 - A family visiting Bass Hill purchased a Saturday Lotto entry worth $387,971.00!

The woman who purchased the unregistered entry came forward to NSW Lotteries this afternoon to claim the first division prize.

“It was destiny that we bought our winning ticket in Bass Hill,” the winning woman said.

“My husband and I were driving there to visit relatives and I said I wanted to stop in at a newsagency and buy a Lotto ticket.

“We had an argument in the car because he didn’t want to go out of his way, but now he’s so happy that we took the time to buy the ticket!

“We’ll pay off our mortgage with this money and would love to go on an overseas holiday.”

The winning QuickPick ticket was purchased from Bass Hill Plaza News, Shop 27 at 753 Hume Highway, Bass Hill.
