$785,465.13 happy mistake for young Wanniassa family!

A young family from Wanniassa have started their new year discovering the best mistake ever! Their 50-game QuickPick entry in draw 3693 had won them a division one prize of $785,465.13!

The winning wife revealed she had intended to purchase an entry into the New Year’s Eve $31 million Megadraw and had instead ended up with a ticket in Saturday’s Lotto draw on December 10, 2016.

“I’d been walking around with the ticket in my purse for more than three weeks thinking it was for the New Year’s Eve draw,” the woman declared.

“When I was out shopping I checked the ticket and there was confusion all around! It took a little while for us to realise we hadn’t won a prize in the New Year’s Eve draw but a draw three weeks earlier!

“This is the best mistake ever and it’s come at such a great time! We’re going to stay level headed, clear the mortgage, pay off all our bills and live debt free!”

The division one winning entry was purchased from NewsXpress Erindale, Shop 12, Erindale Shopping Centre, 68 Comrie Street in Wanniassa.

Mark Hughes is the owner of NewsXpress Erindale and was delighted to have helped deliver another division one winning prize.

“We’re really pleased the winners have discovered they were holding the winning ticket and have come forward to claim their prize. What a great start to 2017!” Mr Hughes exclaimed. “It’s lovely to see at this time of year and would be an amazing experience for the young family.

“We’re very happy for the local winners and wish them all the best!”
