Three NSW winners share $1 Million Monday Lotto prize

Tuesday 21 February - Three NSW Monday Lotto players have lots to smile about today after sharing the $1 million division one prize pool in last night’s draw.

Winners who purchased their tickets from the southern NSW town of Albury, the Sydney suburb of Darlinghurst and online each scored a $333,333.34 share of the $1 million prize.

A local Albury man in his late fifties said that receiving a phone call from NSW Lotteries officials this morning confirming his big win was the best phone call he ever received.

“You’re joking, this is the best present and best phone call I’ve ever received!” the shocked winner exclaimed.

“I only started playing a new systems eight ticket with my favourite numbers three weeks ago.

“I don’t play every week and I happened to be in town yesterday and saw Westend Plaza Lotto and thought that seeing as I had never been there before I would go in and buy Lotto. It worked, it was lucky for me,” the winner added.

There is no doubt that this winner will celebrate his good fortune, he also added that his wife will be thrilled with the good news.

“We’ll go overseas and maybe upgrade our house, that’s what I think now but who knows really. My wife will be more than delighted when I tell her about this as will the bank manager,” the winner joked.

“I’m looking forward to celebrating but right now I fell like a stiff drink to calm my nerves,” the winner laughed.

The lucky Albury man purchases his winning systems eight ticket from Westend Plaza Lotto at Centro Albury.

Newsagency Rachel Valente said that she is delighted to have sold a division one prize.

“I am so excited about this, it’s my birthday today too so there are two good reasons to celebrate,” Ms Valente said.

The winning ticket was purchased from Green Park Newsagency at 267 Victoria Road, Darlinghurst.

A winner who purchased their Monday Lotto ticket online at scored also scored a $333,333.34 share in Monday Lotto’s $1 million division one prize.
