Adelaide CBD store syndicate wins $1.5 million in X Lotto Superdraw!
There are eight happy X Lotto players in Adelaide CBD today after their syndicate entry won a total of $1,526,938.40, or $190,867.30 per share, in the weekend’s X Lotto Superdraw!
In another example of syndicate success, it was one of three division one winning entries in South Australia, two of which were Store Syndicates and one of 14 division one winning entries nationally in the weekend’s $21 million Superdraw event.
The eight residents were part of a store syndicate sold at Hutt Street Newsagency & Stationer, 184 Hutt Street, Adelaide.
Cecelia Lei is the manager at Hutt Street Newsagency and said she was delighted to have created a division one winning syndicate for eight happy customers.
“It’s very exciting!” Ms Lei exclaimed.
“We started this syndicate specifically for the $21 million Superdraw for some of our regular players.
“We called it Scorching Systems, which is appropriate because the heatwave has brought us a win!”
One of the syndicate members spoke to an SA Lotteries official this morning to confirm the win and declared today the best Monday he’s ever had.
“I’m completely shocked! It’s just a great surprise!” he exclaimed.
“I don’t usually buy Lotto entries and it was a bit of a spur of the moment purchase. It just incredible – I feel really lucky!
“I popped out last night to pick up some milk and checked my ticket while I was there, I couldn’t believe it! It was such a surprise – I was speechless!”
When asked how the happy winner planned to spend his share of the X Lotto windfall he confessed it had come at the perfect time.
“My partner and I were looking to buy a house this year so it will be a massive help towards that.”
The six winning numbers in Saturday X Lotto draw 3815 on Saturday 10 February 2018 were 7, 27, 23, 2, 16 and 44, while the supplementary numbers were 25 and 28.
Across Australia, there were 14 division one winning entries – four from Victoria, three from South Australia, three from New South Wales, three from Western Australia, and one from Queensland.
