The syndicate’s marked System 10 and 11 entry also won division three 24 times, division four 105 times, division six 160 times, boosting the total windfall to $700,390.58.

Each member of the syndicate took home a $58,365.89 prize.

Plenty Luck News & Lotto owner Amol Kapoor said the winning syndicate was a sweet surprise for his outlet.

“We were in shock when we found out our group syndicate held a division one winning entry in the weekend’s TattsLotto draw,” he said.

“We have been telling all of our customers that we were due for another division one winning entry as it’s been over a year since we last sold one.

“There will be many smiles in our newsagency this week as we decorate the store with balloons, posters, and streamers.

“I’d like to thank all the retailers who were also a part of the winning syndicate that sold division one. They have been a part of my journey and I hope we can continue this winning streak.

“Congratulations to all the syndicate members who picked up a share of the $740,000 division one win. We hope we can share some of the winning news with you this week!”
