$1 million Wednesday Lotto prize shocks Newcastle winner!

Monday 20 April 2015 - A man in the Newcastle area had a hard time believing that he had become one of the state’s newest millionaires after winning a first division prize of $1 million in last week’s Wednesday Lotto draw!

The winner in his 50’s, who wishes to remain anonymous, was unaware of his millionaire status until a NSW Lotteries official was finally able to break the news to him late last week.

“You are kidding? You have got to be kidding! This better not be a joke! I’ve been out of work since late last year!” the shocked man exclaimed.

“I’ve been playing the same numbers for as long as I can remember and I usually check my tickets every Sunday morning.”

When asked what he planned to do with his cool million-dollar windfall, the winner joked, “I guess we’ll do a lot of things,” and said the first person he would be sharing the life-changing news with was his wife.

The winning 10-game marked entry was purchased from Wallsend Newsagency, 126 Nelson Street in Wallsend.

There was one first division prize in Wednesday Lotto draw 3443, which offers a guaranteed division one prize of $1 million for up to four winners in each draw.

The winning numbers in Wednesday Lotto draw 3443 on Wednesday 15 April 2015 were 19, 22, 6, 29, 31 and 3, with the supplementary numbers 33 and 24.
