The Hills are alive again with a $1 million Wednesday Lotto prize!

A NSW Lotteries player who purchased an 18-game marked entry has won a Wednesday Lotto division one prize worth a cool $1 million!

But just who exactly picked the winning numbers will remain a mystery, as the winner has spoken to NSW Lotteries in secret to claim their Wednesday Lotto windfall!

They became a millionaire one week ago in Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw 3631 on Wednesday 1 February 2017 and have only just came forward holding the unregistered winning ticket.

The Hills’ newest millionaire, who wishes to remain completely anonymous, purchased an 18-game marked entry from Winston Hills Newsagency, Shop 3 in the Winston Hills Mall, 180 Caroline Chisholm Drive in Winston Hills.

It’s not the first time the Hills have come alive with division one delight. There have now been eight division one winning tickets sold at Winston Hills Newsagency under the ownership of John and Kathyn Leckie since July 2005.

During those 11 years and 6 months, the Leckie’s have been ‘lucky’ enough to make six millionaires, most notably a customer who won $30 million in Oz Lotto in March 2014.

The $30 million winning man in his 40s planned to buy a couple of homes, share his prize money with his family and take an early retirement!

Most recently in April 2014, a man in his 60s from Sydney’s Northern suburbs planned to pay off his mortgage and retire after winning $1 million in Monday Lotto.

John Leckie said he was thrilled to have sold his eighth division one winning ticket and made his sixth millionaire.

“It’s absolutely fantastic to have made another customer a millionaire!” Mr Leckie exclaimed.

“All of my regulars have been coming in to check their tickets, wishing it could be them whose numbers came up!

“They’ve been asking me for the secret! But despite selling eight division one winning tickets over the years, I still don’t know!” he laughed.

“I hope it won’t be long though before we do it again, maybe even in tonight’s $15 million Powerball draw!

“To our lucky Wednesday Lotto millionaire – Congratulations! Enjoy your good fortune!”

Throughout Australia, there were two division one winning entries in Wednesday Lotto draw 3631. Along with the winning NSW Lotteries player, the other division one winning entry was purchased in South Australia.

Wednesday Lotto offers a guaranteed $1 million division one prize for up to four winners in every draw.
