“This is a godsend” proclaims Sydney’s newest Wednesday Lotto millionaire
One Sydney woman has received a Valentine’s Day gift she will never forget – news she’s now a millionaire!
The New South Wales retiree held the only division one winning entry nationally in Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw 3843, drawn Wednesday 13 February 2019, taking home the guaranteed division one prize of $1 million.
When we contacted the woman this morning to break the life-changing news, they were met with stunned silence.
“That’s wonderful news,” she eventually managed.
“That’s really exciting.
“It’s a godsend.”
The unsuspecting winner revealed she’d been playing Monday & Wednesday Lotto since the 1980s, always marking her entries with special numbers.
“The biggest prize I’ve ever won is $1,000, so $1,000,000, this is just great!” she exclaimed.
“They’re actually my husband’s numbers.
“He’s gone off to play golf, but he will be over the moon when I tell him we’ve won!
“He will be so excited.
“His numbers are based on birthdays and other special anniversaries.”
The retiree said she’d never dreamt of how she’d spend a million-dollar division one prize but couldn’t wait to start.
“We will definitely have to think about it for a while,” she said.
“But we would love to move, so this will make that entire process a whole lot easier.”
The winning Monday & Wednesday Lotto ticket was purchased at Shepherds Bay Newsagency, Shop 6 11A, The Village Plaza Shepherds, 11 Bay Drive, Meadowbank.
Shepherds Bay Newsagency owner Phuong Dong said she was so excited to discover the outlet had sold a division one winning entry.
“I was literally jumping up and down when I realised we’d sold the winning entry this morning!” she exclaimed.
“The last time we sold a division one winning entry was in 2013 in Saturday Lotto.
“It’s been a little while so we’re thrilled. We’ve been telling all our customers that we sold a winning entry and they are all so happy for the winner!”
