No Monday blues for a South-West Sydney family!

One close-knit family from South-West Sydney are smiling ear to ear after their shared entry in Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw won a division one prize of $1 million!

The winning mother of the family admitted she was in nervous disbelief when NSW Lotteries were able to officially confirm she held the only division one winning ticket in Monday night’s Lotto draw.

“I’m a little bit nervous and I’m shaking actually!” the mother exclaimed.

“I’ve never won anything even close to this before! What do I do?

“Normally I think it’s good when I get one or two numbers and win $13 so this is just unbelievable!

“We’re just a regular family – things like this don’t happen to us!”

The winner explained that their 12-game marked entry included numbers their adult daughter had chosen for them.

“Our adult daughter chose the numbers in our marked entry and these are the numbers we regularly use,” she explained.

“What’s even better is she was the one who realised we had all six numbers! She was up studying for an exam until around 2am Tuesday morning and thought she’d check the tickets.

“She told me that she was circling all the numbers as they matched and realised she had three, then four, then five and then all six! She woke me up and both of us were so excited and wanted to scream but we didn’t want to wake up our neighbours!

“We’ve been awake since then and still in our pyjamas!

“After a long year for our family this is just amazing.”

The winning entry family, who wish to remain anonymous, purchased their 12-game marked entry from Glenfield Newsagency, Shop 2, 108 Railway Parade, Glenfield.

Jennifer Chau is the owner of Glenfield Newsagency and was thrilled to hear they’d sold a winning entry in Monday Lotto.

“This is so exciting for us! When we found out we’d sold the only winning entry we couldn’t believe it,” Mrs Chau shared.

“We’ve had the store since 2007 so it’s been a long time coming to sell a division one entry! “We hope the winner enjoys their $1 million prize!”

The winning numbers in Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw 3608 on Monday 14 November 2016 were 3, 39, 35, 4, 25 and 13. The supplementary numbers were 15 and 34.
