Hardworking Campbelltown man claims $1 million Lotto Strike prize
A hardworking Campbelltown man has come forward as the mystery Lotto Strike winner six days after the numbers which made him a millionaire were drawn.
The happy winner was the only division one winning entry in Lotto Strike draw 4494 on Saturday 5 May 2018. He takes home the entire division one prize of $1,042,569.00.
But while the winning entry is registered, NSW Lotteries officials had been unable to contact the ticketholder on the details provided on their Players Club card and had to wait for them to come forward to claim their prize.
When speaking with a NSW Lotteries official this morning to confirm the win the winner revealed the reason he was unaware of his win was that he never checked his tickets.
“I just came in to check my ticket when I put on my next one, I never check the numbers after the draw, and they told me I had won!” he exclaimed.
“It was a big shock this morning!
“You know what? I’ve picked those numbers out feeling lucky about them hoping they were going to come out.
“I’ve picked them out in the last twelve months and have stuck with them since then.
“It’s all luck but I’m excited it’s happened to me and I’m ecstatic!”
When asked how the winner planned to spend his Lotto Strike windfall he revealed:
“I’m hoping to expand my business and pay off my home loan.”
“It will really help us financially and set us up for the future.”
The winning entry was purchased from Queen Street Newsagency & TSG, Shop 4, 138 Queen Street, Campbelltown.
The Campbelltown win comes as the second Lotto Strike division one win in the area in seven months. The last winner planned to spend his windfall on celebrating the “most beautiful wedding anniversary ever.”
The winning numbers in Lotto Strike draw 4494 on Saturday 5 May 2018 were 34, 28, 22 and 42.
Lotto Strike is an add-on game that is played with Monday, Wednesday and Saturday Lotto and can be played for as little as $1.10.
Lotto Strike’s division one prize is won by selecting the first four Lotto numbers in the exact order they are drawn in the Lotto draw.
If you match just one, two or three of the first four Lotto balls, in exactly the same order drawn, you’ll also win a prize. If no one picks all four winning numbers in the draw, the Lotto Strike Jackpot prize pool will jackpot to the next draw.
The Lott’s division one winning tally has now reached 357 so far this financial year, including 109 won by NSW Lotteries customers.
