Mates celebrate $1.5 million win in Superdraw!

There was a ‘lively gathering’ in the New South Wales Central Coast area of Lake Munmorah yesterday when a group of mates got together to celebrate winning a $1.5 million division one share in Saturday’s $22 Million Superdraw!

A NSW Lotteries official spoke with the excited syndicate leader this morning to confirm their System 9 QuickPick entry had won first division and other divisional prizes totalling $1,595,526.38.

“There are thirty of us who will share this prize money! We’ve played Lotto together for quite some time. We all throw in a few dollars and buy an entry together in the big draws,” the syndicate leader explained.

“I didn’t even realise our ticket had won first division until one of the guys called me early on Sunday to say we had six winning numbers!”

“So we got together yesterday to do a little bit of celebrating – we were a pretty lively crowd!

“We range in age from 40 through to about 80. I’m not too sure if anyone has thought about what they’ll do with their share, but the prize money will make a difference to everyone in some way.”

The division one winning entry was purchased at Newspower Lake Munmorah, Shop 10, 275 Pacific Highway in Lake Munmorah.

David Goodwin is the owner of Newspower Lake Munmorah and was over the moon that he’d sold another division one winning entry.

“This is my second division one win so far this year – my other outlet sold a $200,000 division one winning ticket in Lotto Strike in February,” an excited Mr Goodwin said.

“One of my staff members has the magic touch and sold a $1.5 million winning ticket this time.

“It’s wonderful to hear that so many locals are celebrating. I’d like to congratulate them all on their big win!”

Throughout Australia, there were 14 entries that won a first division prize of $1,571,428.58 in the weekend’s Saturday Lotto $22 Million Superdraw. Along with the winning entry from Lake Munmorah, there were three other division one winning tickets sold in New South Wales, four were purchased in Victoria, and two each in Queensland, South Australia and Western Australia. The other New South Wales division one winning entries were purchased in Kariong, Randwick and online.
