St Albans' Wednesday Lotto $1 million prize claimed!

After waiting for almost one week, St Albans’ mystery millionaire has come forward to Tatts today to claim their Monday & Wednesday Lotto division one prize worth $1 million!

The unregistered System 8 marked entry which won division one and other divisional prizes totalling $1,003,011.85 in Wednesday Lotto draw 3555 on the 11 May, was purchased in Melbourne’s north-western suburb of St Albans.

The mystery winner wishes to keep their identity completely anonymous and celebrate their new millionaire status privately. Cindy Mai and Seang Tay are the owners of Winning Lotteries St Albans, 59 Alfrieda Street in St Albans, where the division one winning entry was purchased and are thrilled for their millionaire customer.

“There’s been a bit of a build-up to this million dollar win in our store, since just a few days earlier we sold a TattsLotto division one group syndicate share worth more than $77,000 on Saturday 7 May!” Ms Tay exclaimed.

“So to have sold a Wednesday Lotto ticket that won $1 million for one of our lucky customers is absolutely fantastic news!

“They say good things come in threes so after having two division one prize winning customers in the space of a week, we’re hoping to have a third one soon!

“We’re very happy that the winner has come forward to claim their prize and I look forward to sharing the good news with my customers, since everyone has wanted to know the winning entry type – a System 8 marked entry!”

Throughout Australia, there were four entries that won first division in Monday & Wednesday Lotto which offers a guaranteed division one prize of $1 million for up to four winners in each draw. Along with the two winning entries from Victoria, there was one division one winning ticket each sold in Queensland and New South Wales. The other division one winning ticket was won by a Chirnside Park store syndicate with 10 members.

The winning numbers in Wednesday Lotto draw 3555 on Wednesday 11 May were 22, 13, 1, 31, 8 and 11. The supplementary numbers were 41 and 25.
