Sleepless night for Monday Lotto millionaire!

Tuesday 12 January 2016 - A man from the Hunter Region spent most of last night on the telephone calling his family to let them know he’d just become a millionaire after winning first division in Monday Lotto!

The Dungog winner admitted he was a bit tired when a NSW Lotteries official contacted him this morning to confirm he’d won first division and other divisional prizes totalling $1,012,193.20.

“I want to make sure I get that twenty cents!” the excited winner initially joked on hearing confirmation of his prize amount.

“Seriously though that sounds like a good number to me!

“I actually found out I’d won first division soon after the draw. I was flicking through the TV channels last night when I came across the Monday Lotto results and I thought hang on some of those numbers are mine!

“I missed seeing all the numbers on the TV screen so I phoned a friend and asked them to get the results off the internet for me. Then I got out my ticket to check it and that’s when I saw that I had all six winning numbers!

“I got very little sleep last night. I was busy calling all my family to let them know. I was still talking on the telephone at two-thirty this morning! Everyone’s reaction was fantastic – you’d think they’d won lotto when I told them!

“I’m not 100 per cent sure what I’ll do with my windfall but I do know that my children will benefit.”

The winner has chosen to remain anonymous.

The division winning System 8 marked entry was purchased at Dungog Newsagency, 184 Dowling Street in Dungog.

Throughout Australia, there were two entries that won first division in last night’s Monday Lotto draw 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 sold in the ACT.

The winning numbers in Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw 3520 on Monday 11 January 2016 were 10, 23, 27, 26, 3 and 8 with the supplementary numbers of 5 and 24.
