Head spinning Monday Lotto win for Newington's millionaire!

It’s the phone call Lotto players dream of, and this morning a man from Sydney’s western suburbs was waiting eagerly by his phone for his million dollar call from NSW Lotteries!

The customer, who had registered his Monday Lotto entry to his Players Club card, said he knew he’d be getting his dream-come-true phone call after checking his entry early this morning.

“I logged on to the internet to check my ticket and I couldn’t believe it when I saw I had all six winning numbers!” the winner exclaimed.

“I thought to myself, ‘Am I looking at it correctly?’ and re-checked my ticket about five times! It was a surreal feeling – my head was spinning.

“I’ve played Monday Lotto for a long time and I’ve always hoped that one day I’d win first division and it turns out that day is today! It’s quite bizarre calling myself a millionaire!

“I was only looking at my superannuation balance the other day thinking if only I had a little bit more I could retire – this windfall will make that happen.”

The division one winning 24-game QuickPick entry was purchased from Newington Newsagency, Shop 1 in Newington Marketplace, 6 Avenue of Europe in Newington.

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

The winning numbers in Monday Lotto draw 3578 on Monday 1 August 2016 were 15, 24, 5, 42, 26 and 45 with the supplementary numbers of 4 and 17.
