Division one X Lotto 'snack' in Mansfield Park!

What could be more delicious than a juicy division one prize worth more than $822,000 in the weekend’s X Lotto draw?

Well, a man from the north-western suburbs of Adelaide is tucking in to an $822,853.96 division one prize after matching all six winning numbers in the weekend’s X Lotto draw!

The happy man discovered the good news on Sunday morning and was excitedly welcomed when he checked his ticket at MJ’s Snack Bar Deli.

“It hasn’t sunk in yet! I ran into the Deli to check my ticket and the excited lady there knew she’d sold a division one winning ticket and was already waiting for her winning customer to come in!” the man explained.

“She must have shaken my hand about 100 times and hugged me 100 times! We were very excited!

“I used to look at the certificates on the wall at the Deli and tell the staff ‘I’m going to get you one of those one day!’ and now I have!

“I’ve been playing X Lotto for about 16 years and I have played the same 4-games of numbers all that time. It was originally just a QuickPick that I saved as favourite numbers on my Easiplay Club Card and carried them over each week.

“With the windfall I plan to finally pay off my mortgage!”

The happy man, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his division one winning 4-game marked entry from MJ’s Snack Bar Deli, Shop 1, 86 Wilson Street in Mansfield Park.

Minh Duy Phan is the owner of MJ’s Snack Bar Deli and said he was delighted to have sold a division one winning ticket.

“We are very happy to have sold a division one winning ticket to a regular customer! We feel like a very lucky outlet!” Mr Phan exclaimed.

“Our winning customer only played a few games. He had a 4-game entry costing $2.80 and was lucky enough to win division one! How lucky is that! I’ve never seen anything before like that – it’s unbelievable! It just goes to show that anyone can win!

“My wife checked his ticket and said ‘yes, that’s the winning ticket!’ – There were tears of joy, it was very exciting!

“We’ve sold a lot of second division winning tickets before and our lucky outlet has sold a couple of division one winning X Lotto tickets about 18 – 20 years ago, one worth more than $1.2 million!

“Congratulations to our recent division one winning customer and best wishes for what your future now holds!”
