Magic Monday for Saturday Lotto division one winner!

A man in his forties from Sydney’s western suburbs unintentionally found a way to brighten his Monday morning when he answered his phone soon after arriving at work.

On the other end of the line was a NSW Lotteries official ready to make his day with the life-changing news that his entry in the weekend’s Saturday Lotto draw had won first division and other divisional prizes totalling $702,776.60.

“That’s great news!” the shocked winner exclaimed.

“Wow! I had two entries in the weekend’s Saturday Lotto draw and I saw that one ticket had won a smaller prize but I didn’t know this one had won first division!

“As soon as you phoned me though I thought to myself, ‘Something is happening!’ You really have made my Monday!

“This win takes the pressure off – I can pay off my home! I’m also taking my family on a Christmas holiday and now we’ll be able to have an even better one – a little more luxurious!”

The winning System 8 entry was purchased online via theLott.com – Australia’s official online lottery.
