Thursday 3 July, 2014 - Wednesday Lotto’s special ‘Double Win Wednesday’ promotion made a Pascoe Vale South man a multi-millionaire overnight!
The winner in his 50s was overwhelmed to hear the news from a Tatts official this morning that he’d won a first division prize of $2 million, double the usual dividend of $1 million in a Wednesday Lotto draw!
“All I can say is this comes as a magical surprise! It’s not often you get an official call to say you’ve won $2 million!” the winning man said.
“And the sun is shining today as well!” he laughed.
“I have to think about it all, but I’ll use some of the prize money to pay off my mortgage and will take care of my kids’ future.”
The man purchased his winning Wednesday Lotto System 8 QuickPick entry from Coonans Newsagency, 67 Coonans Road in Pascoe Vale South. The winner’s System 8 entry type allowed him to win a division one prize of $2,000,000 along with multiple prizes in divisions three and four for a total prize of $2,015,286.50.
The winning numbers in Wednesday Lotto draw 3361 on Wednesday 2 July, 2014 were 4, 18, 9, 27, 42 and 25 with the supplementary numbers of 45 and 20. Along with the prize won in Victoria, another $2 million division one prize was won in New South Wales.
The ‘Double Win Wednesday’ promotion for one draw only offered Wednesday Lotto players the chance to win double the prize money in divisions one to six!
Monday and Wednesday Lotto offers players a guaranteed $1 million division one prize for up to four winners every Monday and Wednesday.
