A trio of siblings from Lugarno who believe a family that plays together, stays together have been shocked to discover they won $900,000 in the weekend’s Saturday Lotto draw.

The southern Sydney residents held one of the six division one winning entries nationally in Saturday Lotto draw 4459 on Saturday 13 April 2024. Each division one winning entry took home $862,332.62.

In addition to division one, the winning family also scored division two 6 times, division three 6 times and division four 15 times, bolstering their total lottery loot to $907,881.02. 

“Thank you! It’s crazy!” she exclaimed.

“I can’t believe it still. It’s a family ticket with my siblings so we’ll be splitting it three ways.

“We’re all so excited. We had no idea until yesterday.

“I was looking at the ticket and I knew we had a few numbers, but I had no idea we’d won division one!

“I even saw a Facebook post looking for a winner in our area, but it still hadn’t clicked.

“Finally, when I checked it at the newsagency, I realised the incredible news.

“It’s amazing. It will make such a huge difference. Not just to me but to my family and my sibling’s families too.

“We’ll all be able to feel more comfortable.

“We can put some towards our mortgages and hopefully soon, we can do a big family holiday!”

“Thank you so much!”

The winning marked System 8 entry was purchased at Lugarno News & Post, 1028 Forest Road, Lugarno.

Lugarno News & Post owner John Chan said he and the team couldn’t be happier for their winning customer.

“We are just as happy as our winner! They came in yesterday; the whole family did, and they had no idea!” he said.

“It was very exciting. We all did a happy dance together.

“This is the first time we’ve sold a Saturday Lotto division one winning ticket, but we’ve also sold other major prize-winning tickets, including division one in Monday & Wednesday Lotto three times!

“Customers are starting to call us lucky! We hope to continue the winning streak!”
