A merry band of 12 TattsLotto players across Melbourne have found the perfect way to beat the Monday blues after their syndicate, the aptly Magical Monday, scored a million-dollar division one prize.

The group syndicate held one of the three division one winning entries across Australia in Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw 4220 on Monday 26 September 2022.

In addition to winning a $1 million division one prize, the syndicate’s marked System 12 entry also won division two 6 times, division three 30 times, division four 225 times and division five 200 times – bolstering the group’s total windfall to $1,034,471.90.

Each of the 12 syndicate members has won a share worth $86,260.77. However, some ticketholders may have yet to discover their good fortune.

The winning syndicate was established by Southvale Newsagency, 565 Springvale Road, Springvale South.

Entries into the winning syndicate were also sold at five other Tatts outlets across Melbourne, including: 

• Central Lotto, Altona Meadows 

• Waverley Gardens Lotto, Mulgrave 

• Noble Park News & Tatts, Noble Park 

• Elsternwick News & Lotto, Elsternwick 

• Burwood One Lotto & Tobacconist, Burwood East 

Southvale Newsagency owner Samuel Zeng said the team was thrilled to have sold another division one winning entry in less than 12 months.

“It’s a very exciting experience! I took over the business less than a year ago, and we’ve already sold two division one winning entries,” he said.

“This syndicate named Magical Monday has been running for more than two years and is a weekly syndicate for Monday and Wednesday.

“We will be sharing the winning news with all of our customers and hopefully come across some syndicate members that aren’t aware of the winning news!”
