Lake Macquarie's $1.3 million Superdraw winner claims prize!

The Lake Macquarie mystery of who won $1.3 million in last weekend’s $20 Million Superdraw has been solved after the winner came forward to NSW Lotteries to claim their prize!

Despite NSW Lotteries shouting from the rooftops that there was a missing millionaire, the overjoyed Lake Macquarie man admitted he was none-the-wiser!

“I didn’t know that an unregistered division one winning ticket had been sold in area,” the excited winner confessed.

“I had a spare ten minutes so I thought I’ll duck into a newsagency and check my ticket. After the staff member put my ticket through the lottery terminal she said to me that I’d won a prize and when I asked how much she said to me, ‘It’s big!’.

“I was stunned when I found out I’d won first division! I’d always promised my wife I’d never let her know if I won because she was worried about how she’d react to the life changing news but I raced home and told her!

“She was over the moon! We rang our children to tell them because we’ll be sharing this prize money with them.”

The winner has chosen to remain anonymous.

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

The division one winning 12-game QuickPick entry was purchased at Charlestown Square Newsagency, Shop G8016 in Charlestown Square, Pearson Street in Charlestown.

This division one win comes less than twelve months after the outlet sold a division one winning entry worth $1 million in Wednesday Lotto draw 3479 on Wednesday 19 August 2015.
