Hornsby great-grandmother wins $750,000 in Saturday Lotto!

Monday 21 September 2015 - For more than two weeks, a great-grandmother from Hornsby has been completely unaware that she was the Saturday Lotto $21 Million Superdraw winner that NSW Lotteries has been searching for!

The ecstatic winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, only discovered today that she’d won a first division prize of $750,000 on Saturday 5 September and had the unregistered entry burning a hole in her briefcase.

“No way! Are you serious? Hahaha! Oh Lordy day!” the woman cried when a NSW Lotteries official broke to her the news that she was $750,000 richer.

“You cannot believe how good this is! You know how you always think about what you’re going to do if you win the lotto – well now I’m going to do just what I always dreamed of!

“I’m going to help my family pay off all their debts and also give to charity!”

When asked why she had taken awhile to come forward to claim her prize the woman admitted she always took some time to get around to checking her lotto tickets.

“I can’t believe I had a $750,000 Saturday Lotto ticket just sitting there in my briefcase all this time!” she laughed.

The winning 24-game QuickPick entry was purchased at Hornsby Mall Newsagency, Shop 1 in the Florence Street Mall at 33 Florence Street in Hornsby.

“It’s so wonderful to know that the prize has gone to such a deserving winner who will be sharing her new found wealth with her family as well as giving some to a good cause!”
