Tuesday 13 March 2012 - A retiree from Cronulla received a phone call from a NSW Lotteries official earlier today to confirm that he had won the $1 million division one prize in last night’s Monday Lotto draw.
The winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, said that he had checked his Lotto numbers in the paper and was overjoyed that NSW Lotteries called him to confirm his win.
The local pensioner has been playing the same Lotto numbers for many years. The winner purchased his winning 12 game standard entry from Woolooware News and Post at 39 Wills Road, Woolooware.
NSW Lotteries officials were able to contact the $1 million winning Cronulla man as he is a Players Club member.
By registering all lottery purchases with a Players Club card, players ensure their prizes are protected and that they can be contacted with news of a big win.
The winning numbers in Monday Lotto draw 3120 were 31, 15, 5, 20, 42 and 26 with the supplementary 40 and 6.
