A merry crew of 10 Wollongong shoppers have awoken to the news their syndicate scored $1 million in last night’s Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw. 

The syndicate entry was one of the two division one winning entries nationally in Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw 3860, drawn Monday 15 April 2019.

Each entry takes home the guaranteed division one prize of $1 million. In addition to taking home division one, the syndicate’s System 8 QuickPick entry also won division three 12 times and division four 15 times, bolstering its total prize to $1,006,868.95. Each of the ten members of the winning syndicate receives a share worth $100,686.90. 

The syndicate was sold at Centretown Newsagency, Shop 1, 143 Crown Street, Wollongong. 

Centretown Newsagency owner Maria Colla couldn’t contain her excitement over the division one win. 

“We’ve done it! This is amazing!” she exclaimed. 

“We’ve been here about 19 years and this is our second division one winning syndicate.  We’ve also sold about four division one winning entries and other top prizes during that time. 

“I was only thinking the other day ‘when are we going to have another division one?’, and then it happens. It must be all that positive energy. 

“This is one of our long-running weekly syndicates. It’s called Five Days of System 8 as it has a System 8 entry into five lottery draws. 

“Most of the people who play this syndicate are regulars who join the syndicate each week so we can’t wait for them to come in so we can tell them they’ve won!” 

As some syndicate members held unregistered entries , they might still be unaware of their good fortune. If you purchased a share in a syndicate for last night’s draw, today’s the day to check it!
