$1 million Monday Lotto win in Newcastle!

Wednesday 26 August 2015 - A Newcastle woman got the surprise of her life when she discovered she’d been a millionaire for more than ten days and didn’t even know it!

The winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, was unaware her entry in Monday Lotto draw 3476 on Monday 10 August had won a $1 million first division prize until she finally checked it late last week.

“I’m a bit in shock to be honest but I’m sure it will sink in later on!” the stunned millionaire declared.

“I normally check my lotto tickets when I buy the next week’s entries however I’d been away so hadn’t done it!

“This prize money has come at a very good time. I’ll share my windfall with my family and an old friend who’s struggling a little at the moment.”

The winning 4-game marked Monday Lotto entry was purchased at Marketown Newsagency, Shop 8 in Marketown Shopping Centre in Newcastle West.

There were two entries that won a first division prize in Monday Lotto, which offers a guaranteed division one prize of $1 million for up to four winners in each draw. The other first division winning entry was purchased in the New South Wales town of Buronga.

The winning numbers in Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw 3476 on Wednesday 10 August 2015 were 31, 10, 12, 4, 29 and 16 with the supplementary numbers of 9 and 36.

There are more chances to win big with $6 million up for grabs in tomorrow’s Powerball draw. Tickets are now on sale from all NSW Lotteries outlets and online from Tatts.com.
