Tuesday 22 April, 2014 - Two New South Wales families had an ‘egg-stra’ special Easter after winning a share in division one in Saturday Lotto!
The winning tickets each picked up a division one prize worth $422,393.92 and were purchased in Braidwood and Toronto.
Braidwood winner planning a little splurge!
A local woman let out a winner’s giggle when a NSW Lotteries official confirmed she’d won a division one share worth more than $420,000 in the weekend’s Saturday Lotto draw!
The grandmother said she’d in fact celebrated twice after initially thinking she’d won division three with her Saturday Lotto ticket.
“When I was checking my ticket, I circled five numbers and got all excited because I thought I’d won $600,” the ecstatic winner said.
“It was only when I checked the ticket again that I realised I had the sixth winning number and had won first division!
“I’m going to have a little splurge with my division one prize money and then I’ll invest the rest in property. I also want to share with my family.”
The winning 6-game QuickPick was purchased at Braidwood Newsagency, 122 Wallace Street in Braidwood.
Toronto win ‘absolutely brilliant’!
A local man was shocked to discover he was more than $420,000 richer after winning a first division share in Saturday Lotto!
The winner was completely unaware that he’d won a division one prize worth $422,393.92 until a NSW Lotteries official contacted him this morning with the big news.
“I’m glad I’m sitting down at the moment!” the stunned winner exclaimed.
“This is absolutely brilliant! Good luck must run in the family; my dad was always very lucky!”
When asked if he might pay off the mortgage, go on a holiday or buy a new car with his Saturday Lotto windfall, the excited winner replied, “All of the above!”
The winning 6-game QuickPick was purchased at The Lucky Charm Toronto, 66 The Boulevard in Toronto.
This is the third big win in less than five months for the newsagency which sold the $7 million winning Lucky Lotteries $2 Jackpot ticket in December and a $1 million division one winning Monday & Wednesday Lotto ticket in February this year.
Throughout Australia, there were 10 entries that won a first division share in the weekend’s Saturday Lotto draw, each worth $422,393.92. Two winning entries were purchased from New South Wales, seven were sold in Victoria and one in South Australia.
The winning numbers in Saturday Lotto draw 3417 on 19 April 2014 were 26, 17, 25, 23, 7 and 3 with the supplementary numbers of 15 and 10.
