Seeking Sydney's mid-week millionaire!

The working week has taken an extraordinary turn for one NSW Lotteries customer after their entry in last night’s Wednesday Lotto draw won $1 million!

The inner-city shopper can now call themselves a millionaire, that is, if they knew that their fortunes had changed overnight.

While the winner is known to NSW Lotteries, thanks to the customer registering their division one winning ticket to a Players Club Card, chances are the winner is still in the dark about their newly-minted millionaire status.

Unfortunately, NSW Lotteries has so far been unable to reach the registered winning customer using their membership details, which is why NSW Lotteries is now putting the call out to all Wednesday Lotto players who shop in the Met Centre to check their tickets without delay.

The elusive registered customer who is set to blast away their mid-week blues, purchased a 1-game System 7 entry from World News Centre Met Centre, Shop G11 Met Centre on 273 George Street in Sydney.

NSW Lotteries spokesperson Claire Taylor said she was eager to speak to Sydney’s new millionaire.

“We’re eager to hear from Sydney’s new millionaire so anyone who purchased a registered System 7 entry in Wednesday Lotto in the city should check their ticket immediately because they could be blasting away the mid-week blues with a $1 million windfall,” Ms Taylor said.

“As the ticket was purchased in the CBD, it’s quite possible the winner works in the city and is sitting at their desk right now unaware that they’re $1 million richer!

“You may not think it’s possible that you could be the millionaire we’re waiting to speak with for but if you had a registered entry in last night’s draw that you haven’t checked yet, you’re in with a chance!

“We’re urging all Wednesday Lotto players to check their ticket as soon as possible and if you discover you are holding the division one winning ticket to contact NSW Lotteries on 131 868 to begin the process of claiming your prize.”

Chris Landas is the Store Manager at World News Centre Met Centre and was over-the-moon to have sold another winning Lotto ticket.

“How exciting! It’s always a good thing to make a customer a millionaire!” Mr Landas exclaimed.

“We’ve sold a number of division one winning entries over the years, mostly in Monday & Wednesday Lotto or Saturday Lotto - so we’re certainly a lucky Lotto shop!

“But I would love to have a jackpot winning customer, maybe in this Thursday’s $6 million Powerball draw or even better next Tuesday’s $15 million Oz Lotto draw!

“Either way, I hope it won’t be long before our next division one winning customer walks through our doors!”

The winning numbers in Wednesday Lotto draw 3607 on Wednesday 9 November 2016 were 34, 24, 38, 9, 43 and 23. The supplementary numbers were 37 and 13.

Throughout Australia, there were two division one winning entries in Wednesday Lotto draw 3607, which offers a guaranteed $1 million division one prize for up to four winners in every draw. Both winning entries were purchased in New South Wales.

Last night’s two winners take the Lott’s division one winning tally to 166 so far this financial year, including 46 won by NSW Lotteries customers.
