Monday 29 July, 2013 - A Sydney man got the shock of his life when he checked his Lotto ticket and discovered he was more than a million dollars richer after winning a share in division one in Saturday Lotto!
One of the state’s newest millionaires said he couldn’t believe his luck after winning division one and other divisional prizes totally $1,134,270.91 in Saturday’s draw.
“Oh my god! You’ve changed my life. I’m so overwhelmed!” the stunned winner exclaimed.
“I wandered in to an outlet to check my Lotto ticket and assumed the machine wouldn’t make a sound!
“Then when it did, I thought maybe I’ve won $1,000 but this is life changing.”
The winner, who has asked to remain anonymous, said it was too soon to say what he’ll do with his Lotto windfall.
“It’ll be put to good use!” the excited winner added.
The winning unregistered entry was purchased at Newsagency on 3, Shop 3006 in Westfield Parramatta, Corner Church and Argyle Streets, Parramatta.
Throughout Australia, there were four entries that won a first division share of Saturday Lotto’s estimated $4 million division one prize pool.
