Thursday 15 May, 2014 - A woman from Orange screamed with delight this morning when she was told she’d become one of the state’s newest millionaires after winning division one in Wednesday Lotto last night!
The ecstatic winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, said she was unaware she’d won $1 million in last night’s draw until a NSW Lotteries official contacted her this morning with the exciting news.
“Please tell me this is true? You’ve got no idea what this means for me!” the winner exclaimed.
“I’ve been playing those numbers for decades. I always knew this was going to happen!”
The overjoyed winner said she plans to use her million dollar windfall to buy a family home and confessed that retirement is on the cards in the near future.
“I cannot believe this - it’s just so exciting!”
The winning Wednesday Lotto 14-game marked entry was purchased at Nextra Orange, Shop 17 in Orange City Centre, 277 Summer Street in Orange.
Throughout Australia, there were two entries that won a first division prize in Wednesday Lotto which offers a guaranteed $1 million division one prize for up to four winners in every draw. The other winning entry was purchased in Queensland.
The winning numbers in Wednesday Lotto draw 3347 on 14 May 2014 were 3, 20, 5, 9, 13 and 27 with the supplementary numbers 25 and 44.
The countdown is on to this weekend’s Saturday Lotto $21 Million Superdraw. You can grab an entry at any NSW Lotteries outlet or online from Tatts.com for your chance to share in $21 million!
