A Lake Macquarie man is struggling to believe he’s started the week a division one winner after checking his lottery ticket this afternoon and making the exciting discovery. 

The New South Wales player held one of the ten division one winning entries across Australia in Saturday Lotto draw 4055 on Saturday 30 May 2020.

Each entry won a division one prize of $502,546.00. 

Confirming his win with us this afternoon, the man said he was struggling to think straight now he was a division one winner. 

“Thank you very much,” he said. 

“It’s hard to believe, that’s for sure. 

“I thought I’d just pop into the newsagency and check my ticket. I wasn’t expecting this news.

 “I’m happy and very surprised. It’s incredible.” 

When asked how he planned to enjoy his Saturday Lotto prize, the Lake Macquarie retiree said he already had at least one thing on his wish list. 

“I will certainly share some with my family,” he said. 

“I’d like to buy myself a new push bike and maybe go on a holiday or two when everything gets going again. 

“It will be great!” 

The winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his life-changing entry at Charlestown Square Newsagency, Shop G8016 Pearson Street, Charlestown. 

Charlestown Square Newsagency team member Lily Fletcher said she was thrilled for their local and regular customer. 

“We are so excited for the winner,” she said. 

“It’s been exactly two years since we sold a division one winning entry, so we are thrilled. 

“Congratulations to our winner. We hope this is the beginning of plenty more big wins to come.”
