Monday 18 March, 2013 - A Northmead local is literally thanking his lucky stars after winning a first division prize of $1,377,646.77 in Saturday Lotto! 

The winner said he put his Lotto luck down to following his Chinese horoscope. 

“This is the Year of the Snake and I was born in the Year of the Snake so I decided to put in my entry on the first day of the Chinese New Year!” the excited winner explained. 

“I also read that blue is my lucky colour this year, so I put my entry in a blue wallet in my wife’s blue handbag. 

“My wife said to me at the time ‘why are you giving me your lotto tickets?’ well now she knows,” the winner laughed. 

The story doesn’t end there, the new Saturday Lotto Millionaire also revealed that he got the winning numbers off a lucky numbers website!
