$1.68 million waiting to be claimed - are you one of Newcastle's mystery division one winners?

NSW Lotteries is again putting out the call for Saturday Lotto players in Newcastle to check their tickets after an unregistered entry purchased in the suburb of Maryland won a first division prize worth more than $683,000 in the weekend’s draw.

NSW Lotteries spokesperson Belinda McDougall said the division one winning entry was not registered to a Players Club card so officials have no way of contacting the latest Saturday Lotto first division winner.

“Instead of being able to make someone’s day with the incredible news that they’re more than $683,000 richer, we’re again waiting by the telephone for them to contact us,” Ms McDougall said.

“This winner could have headed off to work this morning oblivious to the fact they’re a division one winner!

“We love delivering the dream-come-true news of a big win so we’re encouraging customers who purchased an unregistered entry at Maryland Chemmart Pharmacy in the weekend’s Saturday Lotto draw to check their tickets as soon as possible!

“If you have checked your Saturday Lotto entry and think you may be holding the division one winning ticket, ensure that you keep it in a safe place and contact NSW Lotteries as soon as possible to begin the prize claim process,” Ms McDougall added.

The division one winning Saturday Lotto entry was purchased at Maryland Chemmart Pharmacy, Shop 2 in Maryland Shopping Centre, 144 Maryland Drive in Maryland.

Throughout Australia, there were six entries that won a first division prize of $683,262.28 in the weekend’s Saturday Lotto draw. Along with the winning entry from Maryland, there was one division winning entry sold in Queensland, three in Victoria, and one in Tasmania.

The winning numbers in Saturday Lotto draw 3639 on Saturday 4 June 2016 were 26, 38, 27, 43, 12 and 3, with the supplementary numbers 44 and 16.

Still no sign of Newcastle West’s $1 million Lotto winner from January!

Imagine letting your $1 million windfall sit idle for almost five months – well that’s exactly what one NSW Lotteries Saturday Lotto player has done because they didn’t register their winning ticket to a Players Club card!

The division one winning entry was purchased at Marketown Newsagency, Shop 8 in Marketown Shopping Centre in Newcastle West.

The winning numbers in Saturday Lotto draw 3597 on Saturday 9 January 2016 were 20, 25, 36, 30, 18 and 2, with the supplementary numbers 5 and 11.

NSW Lotteries is urging Novocastrians to check their wallets, purses, drawers and even piles of papers stacked on the kitchen bench for any forgotten Saturday Lotto tickets as they could be one of the mystery division one winners.

NSW Lotteries always recommends customers register their entries to a NSW Lotteries Players Club card as it ensures their prize is secure and we can contact them directly with news of a big win.
