Tweed's Monday Lotto winner kick starts new financial year with $1 million windfall!

One mysterious winner who purchased their division one winning entry from Tweed City News will start the new financial year as a millionaire after coming forward to NSW Lotteries today to claim their division one Monday Lotto prize.

But just who has started their new financial year with $1 million in their bank account will remain a mystery with the winner choosing to celebrate in private.

NSW Lotteries spokesperson Elissa Lewis said the new millionaire purchased their division one winning entry from Tweed City News in the northern New South Wales suburb of Tweed Heads South.

“The winning entry wasn’t registered to a Players Club card so we weren’t able to phone the winner and break the life changing news. We’ve been waiting by the phone for the winner to contact us,” Ms Lewis explained.

“We recommend customers register their entries to a Players Club card as it ensures their prize is secure and they receive that dream-come-true phone call if they win division one.”

Sue Woods is the manager of Tweed City News and is very excited the winner has come forward to claim their prize.

“This is so exciting! We’re so happy to have sold a division one winning ticket and changed the life of one of our customers. It gives everyone a buzz,” Ms Woods said.

“We’d like to congratulate our division one winner and wish them all the best.

“This is our second division one win this year. They say good things happen in threes so we’re hopeful this is our lucky year!”

The division one winning entry was purchased at Tweed City News, Shop 235 in Tweed City Shopping Centre, 54 Minjungbal Drive in Tweed Heads South.

Tweed City News also sold a $2 million division one winning entry in Saturday Lotto’s $30 Million Megadraw in January.

Throughout Australia, it was the only entry that won first division in Monday Lotto draw 3566, which offers a guaranteed $1 million division one prize for up to four winners in every draw.

The winning numbers in Monday Lotto draw 3566 on Monday 20 June 2016 were 24, 45, 29, 14, 39 and 35 with the supplementary numbers of 30 and 16.
