Check your Saturday Lotto tickets - Burwood's division one winner still a mystery!

NSW Lotteries officials have been waiting by the telephone for more than one week for a mystery Saturday Lotto player to contact them after their entry won a first division share in last weekend’s Lotto draw.

The unregistered division one winning ticket won more than $579,000 in Saturday Lotto draw 3649 on Saturday 9 July and was purchased in the Sydney suburb of Burwood.

NSW Lotteries spokesperson Belinda McDougall said she was eager to hear from the division one winner and urged all Saturday Lotto players who purchased an entry in last week’s draw in Burwood to check their tickets as soon as possible.

“If the Saturday Lotto player had registered their entry to a NSW Lotteries Players Club card, I would have been able to call them last week and say, ‘Congratulations you’ve won first division!’” Ms McDougall exclaimed.

“As more than one week has passed since this mystery player won more than half-a-million dollars, it’s quite possible they’re still in the dark about their newfound wealth.

“That’s why we’re urging everyone who purchased a Saturday Lotto entry into draw 3649 on Saturday 9 July 2016 in the suburb of Burwood to check it immediately because they could be our missing division one winner!

“Anyone who believes they are holding the division one winning entry should keep it in a safe place and contact NSW Lotteries immediately on 131 868 to start the prize claim process.”

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.

The division one winning entry was purchased at Burwood Plaza Newsagency, Shop 23 and 24 in Burwood Plaza, 42 Railway Parade in Burwood.

Throughout Australia, there were seven entries that won a first division prize of $579,350.82 in last weekend’s Saturday Lotto draw on Saturday 9 July. Along with the winning entry from Burwood, there was one other division one winning ticket sold in New South Wales, one was purchased in the ACT, two in Queensland and one each in Victoria and the Northern Territory.
