A pair of Drummoyne mates have enjoyed a fantastic weekend of celebrations after scoring $1.35 million in the weekend’s Saturday Lotto draw. 

The two-person store syndicate held one of four division one winning entries in Saturday Lotto draw 4259 on Saturday 14 May 2022. Their winning entry scored a total of $1,358,533.00, meaning each winner took home $679,266.50.

Confirming the win with us this morning, the syndicate leader shared he and his friend had been sharing a lottery entry for many years. 

“Wowee! This is incredible, isn’t it?” he proclaimed.

“We’ve had this syndicate going regularly over the last few years and never won anything, so we’re absolutely amazed that we’ve won division one!

“I don’t think it’s actually hit us yet, but it will, and it’s going to do wonderful things for us.

“We’ll look after our families, maybe buy some property and see if we can win Powerball later in the week!”

Shares into the winning syndicate were sold at Nextra Birkenhead Point, Shop 125 Birkenhead Point Shopping Centre, 19 Roseby Street, Drummoyne.

Nextra Birkenhead Point owner Justine Ndaira said she was elated the outlet had sold its first division one winning entry.

“It’s fantastic for us to have sold a division one winning entry. It’s something we’ve always wanted to do!” she said.

“We hope the winners have had a fantastic weekend and wish them all the best in their futures.”
