Saturday Lotto division one win sealed with a kiss!

A retired man from Western Sydney couldn’t wait to steal a quick kiss from his ‘rich wife’ just moments after she was told her entry in the weekend’s Saturday Lotto draw had won a first division prize worth more than $579,000.

The pensioner was overwhelmed when a NSW Lotteries official delivered the dream-come-true news that her 6-game QuickPick entry had won first division.

“Yahoo!” the winner squealed. “I can’t believe this. You’ve just brightened my day. This news has blasted away the winter chill!

“We’re battlers – we’ve struggled all our lives so this is a dream come true darling!” the excited winner said before putting her husband on the telephone.

“What are we going to do with all that money?” the husband whispered before handing the telephone back to his wife.

“What a lovely problem to have,” she added before being surprised by a quick kiss from her husband.

“We’re in shock at the moment. We’re just staring at each other in disbelief!

“This couldn’t have come at a better time. We need to do repairs around the house but we haven’t been able to afford it. Now we can do those repairs and I think we’ll also share some of the windfall with our family.”

The winners have chosen to remain anonymous.

The division one winning 6-game QuickPick entry was purchased at Plumpton Marketplace Newsagency, Shop T19 in Plumpton Marketplace, corner of Hyatts and Jersey Roads in Plumpton.

Raafat Sabri is the owner of Plumpton Marketplace Newsagency and was delighted to know one of his customers was celebrating a division one win.

“It’s so wonderful!” Mr Sabri said. 

“We’ve had a number of big wins over the years and now have quite a lot of plaques on the wall. But we have a big wall so there’s room for many more!

“We’d like to congratulate our division one winning customers and wish them all the best for the future.”
