Wednesday 2 April, 2014 - The mystery millionaire who won a first division share in the weekend’s Saturday Lotto $21 Million Superdraw with an unregistered ticket has come forward and claimed their $1.9 million prize!
The man from Sydney’s Northern suburbs was gobsmacked when he realised his Saturday Lotto ticket had won a share in first division.
“I checked my Superdraw ticket on the internet today and I went numb when I realised I had all the winning numbers!” the stunned winner said.
“I don’t normally check my Saturday Lotto tickets for weeks. I don’t know what prompted me to check it today!”
When asked if he might pay off the mortgage, go on a holiday or spoil the kids with his prize money, the new millionaire replied, “I’ll probably do the lot!”
The winning unregistered 50-game QuickPick was purchased from World Newsagency Metcentre, Shop G11 in the Metcentre, 273 George Street in Sydney.
