Laurieton man nets division one prize in Saturday Lotto!

Monday 14 September 2015 - A Laurieton man said he plans to spend more time fishing after winning a division one share in the weekend’s Saturday Lotto draw!

The overjoyed winner discovered he’d scored a first division prize of $711,872.69 in Saturday’s draw when he checked his entry on Sunday morning.

“I haven’t stopped shaking since I found out! This first division win is life-changing for me,” the stunned man said.

“Now that I’ve won this prize money, I know I’m going to spend more time fishing and just watching the world go by!

“I’ve got a secret spot too. The only problem is my spot is so secret that even the fish don’t know about it!” the winner jokingly added.
