Tuesday 9 July, 2013 - Two friends from Newcastle will collect more than $330,000 after winning a share in division one in last night’s Monday Lotto draw!
The winners were totally unaware they’d won division one and other divisional prizes totalling $333,345.64 until one of them checked their ticket at a NSW Lotteries outlet this afternoon.
“Wow! This is a surprise – it’s a great surprise,” the shocked winner said.
“I didn’t expect this. I mean everyone hopes to win but you just don’t expect it!”
The stunned winner told a NSW Lotteries official that her first phone call would be to her friend to break the news that they’d won more than $330,000.
“I think she’ll be shocked too!” the winner added.
The winning 24-game QuickPick entry was purchased at Blackbutt Newsagency and Post Office, 72 Orchardtown Road in New Lambton.
Around Australia, there were six entries that won a division one share in last night’s Monday Lotto draw, each worth $333,333.34. Along with the four winning entries sold in New South Wales, two winning tickets were purchased in Victoria.
The winning numbers in Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw 3258 on 8 July 2013 were 39, 9, 13, 42, 19 and 29 with the supplementary numbers of 41 and 23.
