Surprising start to the week for Saturday Lotto winner!

Monday 7 March 2016 - A Sydney man’s Monday took a surprising turn when he answered a phone call from a NSW Lotteries official eager to break the news to him that he was more than $659,000 richer after winning a first division share in Saturday Lotto.

The shocked winner from Sydney’s western suburbs admitted he was completely unaware he’d won a division one prize of $659,447.35 in the weekend’s Saturday Lotto draw!

“I did?” the winner initially questioned before asking, “This isn’t a hoax call is it?”

“This is a big surprise! I buy a Saturday Lotto entry every week and the most I’ve ever won is $1,000 many years ago.

“I’ll have to think about what I’ll do with my prize money but I will share with family. I might even take a trip to Europe this year. I do know that I won’t retire just yet – I like to work because it keeps my mind active!”

The division one winning 50-game QuickPick entry was purchased at Carlingford Court Newsagency, Shop 119, 801 – 809 Pennant Hills Road in Carlingford.

Throughout Australia, there were six entries that won a first division prize of $659,447.35 in the weekend’s Saturday Lotto draw. Along with the division one winning entry from New South Wales, there was one division one winning ticket sold in Victoria and four in Western Australia.

The winning numbers in Saturday Lotto draw 3613 on Saturday 5 March 2016 were 20, 39, 11, 2, 45 and 26, with the supplementary numbers 19 and 33.
