Ten X Lotto winners share the love on Valentine's Day!

Monday 15 February 2016 - Ten Dernancourt Newsagency customers have shared the love of winning and celebrated an unforgettable Valentine’s Day after their store syndicate entry scored them a division one share in X Lotto’s $20 Million Valentine’s Superdraw!

Dernancourt Newsagency set up the winning System 9 entry which won first division and additional divisional prizes totalling $1,242,987.69 or $124,298.77 a share.

Current manager and soon to be owner Jenny Milne said she was on cloud nine after learning of the news of her ten member winning syndicate.

“I’m so happy for my customers who are each now more than $124,000 richer! I’ve not been able to get the smile off my face all day so I can only imagine that each of my happy customers is celebrating even more!” she exclaimed.

“It’s great that the prize has been shared around and it’s a nice amount to win. I’m sure my customers will be able to put their X Lotto windfall to good use by paying off the mortgage, taking a holiday and sharing with their loved ones.

“We already have two division one winner’s cheques on the wall in the newsagency and I was always hoping for a third and now we’ve done it! I’d LOVE to sell another division one winning entry and I’m sure as the good news spreads around the area in will happen again soon!”

For one couple with a syndicate ticket it was the second time they had experienced the division one winning feeling when they checked their X Lotto ticket following the $20 million Valentine’s Superdraw and realised they’d done it again!

Less than twelve months prior the winning couple scooped a division one prize after using their favourite numbers to play X Lotto.

The winning wife said she had a feeling it would happen again.

“Since winning X Lotto last year I had a feeling it would happen to us again. I told my daughter about my feeling but of course she didn’t believe me,” the winning wife explained.

“I checked our ticket on Saturday night while I was waiting to collect our Chinese takeaway dinner and I knew we had done it again when I saw we had all six winning numbers and one of the supplementary numbers in the same game!

“Our life and our plans haven’t changed – we’re still working hard and are going to use our prize money to invest for our future.

“We’re planning to treat our family to an overseas holiday and we’re going to extend our family and adopt a rescue dog to provide it with a loving home and lots of cuddles.”

Another of the division one winning syndicate shares was purchased by a local family.

The winning husband explained that his wife checked their ticket on Valentine’s Day and when she realised they had all six winning numbers she started hyperventilating.

“It was a great way to celebrate Valentine’s Day! We’re still planning on what we’ll be doing with our prize money but on the top of our list are some home improvements,” he said.

The winning store syndicate was set up by Dernacourt Newsagency, Shop 2, 840 Lower North East Road.
