Saturday Lotto double division one win in Griffith!

A NSW Lotteries customer was seeing double when they checked their Saturday Lotto entry after it won first division not once but twice in the weekend’s draw.

The registered customer, who will remain completely anonymous, has come forward to NSW Lotteries to claim their twin win which adds up to a total prize of $679,067.34.

NSW Lotteries spokesperson Belinda McDougall said people dream about winning first division once but just imagine discovering you’ve won it twice in the same draw.

“It maybe freezing cold at the moment but I’m sure this winner is feeling warm all over after discovering they’ve got two reasons to celebrate,” Ms McDougall said.

“It’s rare to have a customer win first division twice in the same draw but we do get the opportunity from time to time to deliver that dream-come-true news to a winner twice!

“In 2011, a Murwillimbah man won division one twice on his marked Saturday Lotto entry but was at a loss to explain how he came to pick the same numbers in two games on his ticket.

“We do find customers often select their favourite numbers using birthdays, anniversaries and special dates in their lives.

“So with all of the winning numbers between 1 and 31 in the weekend’s Saturday Lotto draw, it’s quite possible that could be the secret to our winner’s double success.”

The division one winning marked entry was purchased at Griffin Plaza Newsagency, Shop 6 in Griffin Plaza, corner of Yambil and Crossings Streets in Griffith.

Jenny and David Overs are the owners of Griffin Plaza Newsagency and are over the moon to be celebrating their own twin win.

“This is actually the second time we’ve sold a division one winning entry so far this year,” an excited Mrs Overs said.

“We had a customer win a $2 million division one share in Saturday Lotto’s $30 Million Megadraw in January.

“Because our customer has won first division twice in the weekend’s draw, we’ve technically achieved our hat-trick of division one wins for the year!

“While they say good things happen in threes, we still wouldn’t mind having some more division one winning customers in 2016!”

Throughout Australia, there were 12 entries that won a first division prize of $339,533.67 in the weekend’s Saturday Lotto draw. Along with the two division one prizes in Griffith, there were six in Victoria, and one each in Queensland, Tasmania, South Australia and the Northern Territory.

The winning numbers in Saturday Lotto draw 3645 on Saturday 25 June 2016 were 31, 7, 28, 10, 4 and 17, with the supplementary numbers 12 and 23.
