Monday 16 April - A Yagoona man received a phone call this morning advising him that he was one of nine division one winners in Saturday Lotto’s $4 million draw. The winner scored a $469,462.57 share.
The steelworker told a NSW Lotteries official that he had dreamed of receiving a phone call about a Lotto win for a long time.
“I’ve always dreamed about getting this phone call! You have made my year you have probably made the next ten years,” the winner laughed after hearing news of his windfall.
“I will have to sit down and have a good think about what I will do with the money. You don’t know how much this changes things, I have some security now.
“I certainly won’t make any hasty decisions, I’ll take my time deciding what to do,” the winner in his early fifties added.
Yagoona’s Saturday Lotto winner scored a $469,462.57 share in the $4 million division one prize pool with an 18 game ticket which cost just $12.00.
The winner has been playing the same numbers for more than twenty years; his winning numbers are a mix of family birth dates and favourite numbers.
The winning ticket was purchased from Padstow Newsagency at 8 Padstow Parade.
Nine winners across Australia shared Saturday Lotto’s $4 million division one prize pool, along with the Yagoona winner; six winning entries were sold in Victoria and one each in South Australia, Western Australian and the Northern Territory.
