Imagine not knowing you were $754,000 richer for 12 days!

Friday 19 September, 2014 - A man from Sydney’s western suburbs was overcome with emotion when NSW Lotteries delivered the news that he was $754,000 richer after winning a first division share in Saturday Lotto draw 3457 on 6 September.

For twelve days, the registered winner in his 50s was oblivious he’d won a Saturday Lotto first division prize worth $754,800.43 because NSW Lotteries had been unable to get in contact with him.

“Oh my lord! Someone is looking after me because my job has been made redundant!” the emotional winner exclaimed.

“I’m over the moon at the moment! Winning first division means I’ll be able to pay off my mortgage and retirement is now looking good!”

The winner has chosen to remain anonymous.

The division one winning Saturday Lotto 6-game marked entry was purchased from Greenfield Park Newsagency, Shop 11, Greenfield Road in Greenfield Park.

Throughout Australia, there were six entries that won a first division share of Saturday Lotto’s estimated $4 million division one prize pool on Saturday 6 September, each worth $754,800.43. There were three winning entries purchased in New South Wales, and one each purchased in Victoria, South Australia and Queensland.

Along with the winning entry from Greenfield Park, the other New South Wales division one winning entries were purchased in Campbelltown and North Sydney.
