Monday morning surprise for Tuncurry's division one winners!

Monday 15 February 2016 - A Sydney couple were completely unaware that they’d been millionaires for five days because of a broken telephone!

NSW Lotteries officials had been trying unsuccessfully to contact the registered winners last week to break the life-changing news that they’d won a $1 million first division prize in Wednesday Lotto draw 3529 on 10 February.

“Our phone was broken so we couldn’t receive any calls. Our weekend could have been so different if we knew that we were millionaires!” the stunned winning wife exclaimed.

“I decided to check our entry this morning on my way to work and the person at the newsagency told me that we’d won more than $1,000 but I’d have to contact NSW Lotteries to find out how much.

“When I got to work and sat down at my desk, I looked up the winning numbers online and couldn’t believe it when I saw that we had all six of them on our ticket!

“I then asked a close friend at work to double check my numbers and after checking our ticket she started crying because she was so happy for us! She’s even asked me if she can quit work and become my cleaner!”

The winner explained they’d purchased their first division winning Wednesday Lotto ticket in the Mid North Coast town of Tuncurry while holidaying in the area, and now that they’ve won $1 million they might take a permanent holiday!

“I’ll retire for sure and my husband will more than likely retire too now that we’ve won first division!”

The division one winning 14-game marked entry was purchased at Tully’s Tuncurry Newsagency, 68 Manning Street in Tuncurry.

It was the only entry that won first division in last week’s Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw which offers a guaranteed division one prize of $1 million for up to four winners in each draw.

The winning numbers in Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw 3529 on Wednesday 10 February 2016 were 34, 1, 11, 30, 16 and 32 with the supplementary numbers of 31 and 27.
