A Chatswood retiree is looking forward to travelling the world in style after discovering he’s spent the last month unknowingly almost $1.5 million richer from winning division one in Saturday Lotto. 

The Sydney resident held one of the 14 division one winning entries nationally in Saturday Lotto draw 3963 on Saturday 13 July 2019, with each entry taking home a division one prize of $1,428,571.43. 

Confirming his win with us this morning the winner revealed he had no idea his ticket worth almost $1.5 million had been collecting dust on his dining room table. 

“You’ve got to be bloody kidding me!?” he questioned. 

“I’m still standing, just. 

“I’m going to have to give this man who is standing next to me a big kiss. 

“Are you joking? 

“Wow! Gee! The kids will be happy to hear this! 

“This is just lovely. I’ve got butterflies. I had no idea. 

“My ticket has been sitting on the dining room table for a few weeks!” 

The winner said his prize wouldn’t go to waste and he’d enjoy every moment of his windfall. 

“I don’t know exactly what I’ll do with a spare million dollars just yet,” he laughed. 

“Maybe I’ll upgrade my upcoming European holiday and fly first class. I’d get my own bedroom and toilet! 

“I’ll definitely be sharing it with my family and with some charities as well. 

“This is fantastic. Wow!” 

The happy man, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his winning entry at Chase Nextra, Shop B-011 Chatswood Chase Shopping Centre, 345 Victoria Avenue, Chatswood. 

Chase Nextra manager John Avery said he was thrilled for his local customer. 

“We’ve been waiting for weeks for this customer to come back in store and check their ticket,” he said. 

“We were really hoping this life-changing prize had gone to one of our regular customers and it has! We couldn’t be happier. 

“It’s great to have sold another division one winning entry, we hope the winning streak continues!”
