NSW Lotteries players share more than $33 million in division one prizes in just one week

Friday 9 November 2012 - It has been a mega week of wins for NSW Lotteries players resulting in an unbelievable $33,243,038 being shared among five division one winners.

The week got off to a promising start with three NSW Saturday Lotto players scooping three of twelve winning shares in Saturday Lotto’s $21 million Superdraw.

The Saturday Lotto Superdraw winning entries were sold from Chittaway Shopping Centre Newsagency at Chittaway Point, Vincentia Newsagency at Vincentia and Northbridge Newsagency at Northbridge.

Each lucky winner scored a cool $1.75 million.

This week’s biggest win came on Tuesday evening when an ACT family scored a $27,993,037.76 share of Oz Lotto’s jaw-dropping $100 million draw. The jackpot rose to $111.9 million as a result of strong player participation.

The winning ACT family found it difficult to believe news of their massive Oz Lotto windfall when they received a phone call from a NSW Lotteries official shortly after the draw on Tuesday night. They purchased their winning entry during a recent holiday on the NSW south coast from Mollymook Beach Newsagency. They were one of four winners who shared the record jackpot; two of the winning entries were purchased in Victoria and one in Queensland.

The fifth win of the week followed in Wednesday Lotto with a registered Players Club member scoring the $1 million division one prize with a ticket purchased from Hills Centre Newsagency at Seven Hills.

There are still lots of chances for NSW Lotteries players to win big in the coming week with $4 million on offer in Saturday Lotto, $1.46 million in Lotto Strike, $1 million in Monday Lotto, $2 million in Oz Lotto on Tuesday, $1 million in Wednesday Lotto, $30 million on Thursday night in Powerball, more than $4 million in the $2 Lucky Lotteries jackpot draw and more than $8 million in the $5 Lucky Lotteries jackpot draw.

NSW Lotteries Communications Executive, Una O’Neill reminds players to always register their lottery purchases to their Players Club card.

“Not only does registering your entries secure your prizes but it means that like this week’s $27.9 million Oz Lotto winner you can receive a phone call if you win big and with millions on offer every week you never know when you could win a big prize,” Ms O’Neill said.
