Albion Park

Following a visit to NSW Lotteries head office to confirm their win today, an Albion Park couple will celebrate their Saturday Lotto Superdraw division one win by popping open a bottle of bubbly.

“We checked the numbers late on Saturday night and my wife thought we had five winning numbers but when I checked I saw six. We spent about an hour checking and rechecking and then we checked again in the morning,” the winner said, in disbelief of his good fortune.

“We were so excited but reluctant to believe it until we had spoken to someone from NSW Lotteries,” the Albion Park man added.

“It’s such a relief, this is going to change our lives and give us some options. We’ll definitely have a glass of champagne to celebrate the good news,” the Albion Park woman said this morning.

Albion Park’s winner purchased their $1,052,631.58 winning 50 game Maxi QuickPick from Albion Park Newsagency at 159 Tongarra Road, Albion Park.

They won a $1,052,631.58 share of the division one prize along with an additional $6,635.40 in divisional prizes.

“We’ve been playing the same numbers in every week for two years; this is the first really big prize we’ve won,” the syndicate leader said.

“I checked the numbers on Sunday morning and saw the six winning numbers on our ticket.

“I will use my share to pay debts, it’s definitely life enhancing,” the syndicate leader added.

The relatives purchased their $1,059,266.98 System 7 winning ticket from Darling Street Newsagency at 357 Darling Street, Balmain.
