First-time Wednesday Lotto player wins $1 million prize!

Thursday 8 August, 2013 - A Melbourne man is a millionaire after the first ticket he bought in Wednesday Lotto won a division one prize of $1 million in last night’s draw! 

The winner from Melbourne’s north-eastern suburbs said he had a tough time believing he’d won division one in Wednesday Lotto. 

“I checked my ticket on the internet this morning and I just couldn’t believe I’d won first division. I had to call Tatts to confirm it!” the shocked winner exclaimed. 

“It’s so strange. The other day I thought I’ve never played Wednesday Lotto so I went into an outlet that I’ve never been in before and bought my ticket.” 

The winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, said he has no concrete plans for his million dollar windfall. 

“I know I’d like to share some of it with family and maybe do some travelling.” 

The winning 36-game QuickPick was purchased from Macleod Authorised Newsagency, 62 Aberbeen Road in Macleod. 

The winning numbers in Wednesday Lotto draw 3267 on 7 August 2013 were 24, 7, 28, 31, 18 and 42 with the supplementary numbers 19 and 21.
