Ingleburn workers celebrate $212,000 Saturday Lotto win!

If winners are grinners then there are a lot of smiley happy faces at an Ingleburn workplace in the south-western suburbs of Sydney after their shared ticket in the weekend’s Saturday Lotto draw won more than $212,000.

The private syndicate of 20 work colleagues won first division and other divisional prizes totalling $212,793.00 with their shared System 10 marked entry.

“The whole place is celebrating!” the syndicate leader exclaimed.

“I’m the office lady and I made sure everyone was in the work syndicate so no-one has missed out on sharing this win!

“We’ve been playing Lotto together for three or four years now. Each week everyone puts in their $7 and we’ve had a few decent couple of hundred dollar wins.

“We usually put our winnings back in the syndicate pool and at the end of the year we share it out but not this prize – everyone’s getting their $10,000 straight away!

“I checked our ticket on Sunday and when I realised we’d won I messaged a few colleagues straight away and I surprised everyone else with the news on Monday. They all thought it was a gee-up!

“I’m not sure what everyone will do with their $10,000 share but I know that we’ll have a great Christmas party this year!”

The winners have chosen to remain anonymous.

By playing a System 10 entry, the workplace syndicate won first division and other divisional prizes totalling $212,793.00.

The winning marked entry was purchased at Ingleburn Fair Newsagency, Shop 11 in Ingleburn Town Centre, Nardoo Street in Ingleburn.

This is the third workplace syndicate to win a first division prize in recent weeks and follows a group of 23 hospital kitchen workers from Gosford who won more than $1 million in Wednesday Lotto two weeks ago and 51 employees at an Aged Care facility in Melbourne who won $1.9 million in the recent Superdraw.

Throughout Australia, there were 21 entries that won a first division prize of $200,493.60 in the weekend’s Saturday Lotto draw on Saturday 10 September.

Along with the winning entries from Ingleburn, there was another division one winning ticket sold in the town of Cowra, nine were purchased in Victoria, two in Western Australia and one each in South Australia and Tasmania.

The winning numbers in Saturday Lotto draw 3667 on Saturday 10 September 2016 were 27, 18, 9, 13, 5 and 7, with the supplementary numbers 25 and 42.

The winning entry in Saturday Lotto draw 3667 is one of the Lott’s 98 division one winning entries so far this financial year.
