"#@&>%*!" $2 million won in Hoppers Crossing!

Thursday 11 September, 2014 - What would you say if you were told you won a division one prize in Wednesday Lotto overnight?

Tatts can’t publish what some of the customers of Target Lotto in Hoppers Crossing had to say this morning after discovering they’d won a share in a $2 million division one prize last night!

A syndicate of 10 customers of Target Lotto scooped a prize in the special ‘Double Win Wednesday’ promotion overnight, which doubled their divisional prizes for a total of $2,026,775.90 and a share of $202,677.59 each.

Owner of Target Lotto, Carlo Addamo, said his customers have used some very colourful language when expressing their feelings about the win after checking their tickets.

“We haven’t heard about too many plans for the prize money yet – the winners were too busy swearing!” Mr Addamo said.

“One of the ladies I spoke to bawled her eyes out this morning. Another lady has had incredible good luck; this is the third time she’s won a division one lotto prize from a syndicate ticket she purchased at our shop. She’s taken home more than $300,000 in total so far.

“Syndicates are a very popular entry choice for our customers. It means they can purchase a share in a larger lotto ticket for more chances to win but at a fraction of the cost,” he added.

Last night’s $2 million Wednesday Lotto win wasn’t the first division one prize for Target Lotto customers, and Mr Addamo is confident it won’t be the last.

“In the 15 years I’ve owned this Tatts outlet we’ve sold 28 division one lotto prizes, and this is the third one we’ve sold this year!” he said.

The 10-member syndicate won their prize with a Wednesday Lotto System 9 QuickPick entry from Target Lotto, Shop 7, 24-48 Old Geelong Road in Hoppers Crossing. The winning System 9 entry type allowed them to win a division one prize of $2,000,000 along with multiple prizes in divisions three and four for a total prize of $2,026,775.90.

The winning numbers in Wednesday Lotto draw 3381 on Wednesday 10 September, 2014 were 34, 8, 42, 23, 41 and 25 with the supplementary numbers of 14 and 18. Along with the prize won in Victoria, another $2 million division one prize was won in New South Wales.

Monday & Wednesday Lotto offers players a guaranteed $1 million division one prize for up to four winners every Monday and Wednesday each week.

Last night, 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, so the winners shared in a division one prize of $2 million.
