Business Class travel for ACT's $1 million Superdraw winners!

Wednesday 4 November 2015 - A retired Canberra couple will have more leg room next time they travel after declaring they’ll fly Business Class after winning a $1 million first division prize in the weekend’s Saturday Lotto $20 Million Superdraw.

The winners were completely unaware that they’d become millionaires until they checked their 36-game QuickPick entry in Saturday’s Halloween Superdraw today.

“I’m speechless! I’ll admit I’m a little overwhelmed right now,” the winning husband confessed.

“I had no idea that our Superdraw entry had won a first division share. I went into the newsagency to check my ticket hoping that I might win $20 or $30 – I wasn’t expecting to win $1 million!

“This is incredible! It’s a little too early to say what we’ll do with our prize money but I know the kids will be very happy. We might even upgrade to Business Class the next time we travel!”

The winning Saturday Lotto entry was purchased at Erindale Newsagency, Shop 12 in Erindale Shopping Centre, 68 Comrie Street in Wanniassa.

Throughout Australia, there were 20 entries that won a first division share of Saturday Lotto’s $20 Million Superdraw on Saturday 31 October, each worth $1 million. Along with the division one winning entry from the ACT, there were five winning entries from New South Wales, three were from Queensland, six from Victoria, two in Tasmania, one was sold in South Australia and two were purchased in Western Australia.

The winning numbers in Saturday Lotto draw 3577 on Saturday 31 October 2015 were 20, 10, 19, 37, 14 and 27 with the supplementary numbers of 29 and 13.

NSW Lotteries spokesperson Belinda McDougall said this week would be massive with such an enormous amount of prize money up for grabs.

“At times when we have such a huge amount of prize money on offer we often see NSW Lotteries outlet staff run off their feet with players rushing in to purchase their entries,” Ms McDougall said.

Ms McDougall also offered some valuable advice to lottery players taking part in Thursday’s big draw.

“When purchasing lottery tickets our advice is to always register them to a Players Club card. It is an important step that will protect players from missing out on prizes and also should they win one of the big prizes on offer this week, NSW Lotteries will contact them with the good news.”
