Lucky number 13 for Victoria's newest millionaires!

Thursday 4 September, 2014 - The winning numbers drawn in Wednesday Lotto overnight included number 13, which proved the old superstition wrong for two Victorian families who each won a division one prize of $1 million from the draw! 

Both winning entries were purchased online from Tatts.com and the two $1 million prizes have gone to players in the northern suburbs of Melbourne and in Pearcedale. 

Next week, Wednesday Lotto players have the chance to win DOUBLE the prize money in divisions one to six with the ‘Double Win Wednesday’ promotion for one draw only!

Melbourne family to live Great Australian Dream! 

A young family from the northern suburbs of Melbourne told Tatts they will fulfil the Great Australian Dream with their $1 million Wednesday Lotto prize money.

“We’re going to pay our mortgage straight off, so that will use quite a chunk, then we’ll do up the back garden, buy a 4WD and a campervan and do some travel around Australia!” the winning husband said. 

“We enjoy the simple things, but we’re not silly. We’ll look at some investment properties as well and plan for the future,” he added. 

The family from the northern suburbs of Melbourne won their division one prize with a Wednesday Lotto 6-game marked entry purchased online from Tatts.com and they have claimed a $1,000,000 prize. 

Pearcedale couple travel to meet sponsor children 

A couple in Pearcedale has won a $1 million prize in Wednesday Lotto and described their win as “life-changing”. 

“This is spooky! I’m shaking!” the winning husband told a Tatts official over the phone. 

“This is absolutely life-changing. Buying a house is at the top of our list. We’ll share some of the prize money with our sons so they can have a fresh start too. 

“I’m 62-years-old now and I thought I’d be working ‘til I’m 70, but my retirement plans will change now. 

“I chose my Wednesday Lotto numbers years ago. The number 13 isn’t particularly meaningful for us, but I chose it because 13 is unlucky for some, lucky for others. 

“We’ve sponsored a few kids in Cambodia for quite some time, so travelling to meet them is on the agenda. My wife and I would love to go on a cruise overseas as well,” the winner added. 

The Pearcedale couple won their division one prize with a Wednesday Lotto System 7 marked entry purchased online from Tatts.com. Their System 7 entry allowed them to win a division one prize of $1,000,000 along with multiple division three prizes for a total of $1,002,933.40. 

Throughout Australia, there were four entries that won a first division share of Wednesday Lotto’s $4 million division one prize pool on Wednesday 3 September, each worth $1,000,000. Along with the two prizes won in Victoria, another $1 million division one prize was won in New South Wales and another in Western Australia. 

The winning numbers in Wednesday Lotto draw 3379 on Wednesday 3 September, 2014 were 17, 24, 7, 32, 13 and 41 with the supplementary numbers of 26 and 28. 

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

BUT next week, the ‘Double Win Wednesday’ promotion for one draw only will offer Wednesday Lotto players the chance to win double the prize money in divisions one to six on Wednesday 10 September! So you could win a division one prize of $2 million!
