Walgett's Saturday Lotto winner finally receives the call she'd been waiting for

A hardworking Walgett woman says she always knew she’d get a call from NSW Lotteries one day to tell her she was a Saturday Lotto division one winner – and today was her day!
 
The woman was one of 13 division one winners nationally who each took home a prize of $329,266.60 in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 3757 on 22 July 2017. 
 
A NSW Lotteries official broke the dream-come-true news to the woman first thing this morning, leaving her shocked and shaking.
 
“Oh my god! How much? Can you say that again?!” she exclaimed.
 
“Friggin’ hell! Thank you! I’m totally gobsmacked. 
 
“I’m just completely friggin’ overwhelmed – it couldn’t have come at a better time.”
 
The woman explained she completed her 4-game marked entry using numbers that were special to her.
 
With the win still sinking in, the woman is yet to decide how she will spend her surprise windfall, but said it would be an enormous help.
 
“I always knew I’d get a call one day! I just knew!  Finally it came! Hallelujah!” she laughed.
 
“If I could do a backflip mate I would!”
 
The winner purchased their winning 4-game marked entry from Walgett Newsagency, 79-81 Fox Street, Walgett.
 
Walgett Newsagency owner David Thwaites is celebrating his outlet selling its first division one winning entry since he took over the store in 2010.
 
“It’s terrific news!  We’re are super excited – not just for the outlet but for the winner,” he said.
 
“We’ve been waiting so long to have a division one winner and now it’s finally happened.  It’s created a hive of activity!
 
“With the Saturday Lotto $20 Million Superdraw this weekend hopefully it won’t be long until we sell our next division one winning entry.”
