Wagga Wagga's missing $2.7 million Megadraw winner found!

Thursday 15 January 2015 - Imagine walking around for 12 days with a $2.7 million winning Saturday Lotto ticket burning a hole in your handbag!

One NSW Lotteries customer did exactly that; completely unaware her unregistered ticket in the $30 Million Megadraw on Saturday 3 January had won a first division share worth $2,727,272.73.

“My husband and I had been visiting Wagga Wagga. He went to buy a newspaper and I asked him to get me a QuickPick entry in the $30 Million Megadraw because it might be lucky!” the ecstatic winner explained.

“I’ve had that winning ticket in my handbag since then. Yesterday I finally decided to check my ticket and I couldn’t believe it when I realised I had all the winning numbers!

“I actually got on to the NSW Lotteries website and saw the headline asking, ‘Are you Wagga Wagga’s $2.7 million Megadraw winner?’ and I thought yep that’s me!

“I’ve been feeling quite ill this morning because of the shock of being a multi-millionaire but it’s sinking in now and I’m feeling much better!

“The first thing we’ll do with our first division prize money is pay off our mortgage. I’m also working full-time at the moment but I’d like to work part-time!”

The winner has chosen to remain anonymous.

The division one winning entry in last week’s Saturday Lotto $30 Million Megadraw 3491 was sold at Hunters Newsagency, 68 Fitzmaurice Street in Wagga Wagga.
