Macksville's 'holy moly' Monday Lotto millionaire!

The small New South Wales north coast town of Macksville is home to one of the state’s newest millionaires after a local man won a $1 million first division prize in last night’s Monday Lotto draw.

The winner was completely unaware he’d become a millionaire overnight until a NSW Lotteries official broke the dream-come-true news this morning.

“Holy moly! Are you kidding me?” the winner exclaimed.

“I’m astounded! I’m truly lost for words! I’ve been playing Lotto since day dot and the most winning numbers I’ve ever had until now is three numbers and a supp!

“Holy smoke, I really can’t believe this. I’ve been playing my numbers for many years now. They’re a combination of birth dates and random numbers.

“This is such a surprise – I’m not really sure what I’ll do with my prize money. I’ve got everything I need but I have three children so I’ll be giving some money to them.

“I’ll have to sit down with my wife now and work out what we’ll do now but we are long overdue for a holiday. I think the last time we had a holiday was way back in 1989!”

The winner has chosen to remain anonymous.

The division one winning 8-game marked entry was purchased at Macksville Newsagency, 11 Wallace Street in Macksville.

Joe Welsh is the owner of Macksville Newsagency and was delighted to be celebrating yet another big win for the outlet.

“We only sold a $100,000 1st Prize winning ticket in the Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw this year and now we’ve gone one better with a $1 million division one win in Monday Lotto,” Mr Welsh exclaimed.

“We’re now hoping that good things really do happen in threes and we can have another big win soon!

“The bush telegraph has been working in overdrive this morning – we’ve already had lots of phone calls and customers coming into the outlet and congratulating us on the division one win!

“We’d like to congratulate our latest winner and wish them all the best for the future as a new millionaire!”

Throughout Australia, it was the only entry that won first division in last night’s Monday 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 3560 on Monday 30 May 2016 were 20, 17, 8, 37, 33 and 14 with the supplementary numbers of 5 and 29.
