Macksville woman marvelled by magnificent $1.4 million Saturday Lotto windfall
When a Macksville woman thought her holiday couldn’t get any better, she picked up an unforgettable $1.4 million division one win in the weekend’s Saturday Lotto draw.
The New South Wales player held one of the seven division one winning entries nationally in Saturday Lotto draw 4293 on Saturday 10 September 2022 and took home $1,428,571.43.
As the winning ticket was unregistered, so we had no way of contacting the ticketholder to inform them of their million-dollar win and had to wait for the winner to come forward.
“I’m really good now that I’ve won $1.4 million. -my god!” the winning woman cheered when we confirmed the incredible news.
“I’m actually on holiday right now.
“I’ve been crying! This day couldn’t get any better.
“I’ve played the same numbers for many years.
“They were just random numbers that I’ve continued to play.
“I’m not too sure why I chose those numbers, but they’ve obviously worked in my favour!
“When I checked my ticket at the outlet, the team member very quietly and calmly took me to a private room to confirm the win.
“My birthday is coming up, so I might kick my heels up and celebrate on my birthday!
“Thank you very much!”
Her winning entry was purchased at Macksville Newsagency, 11 Wallace Street, Macksville.
Macksville Newsagency owners Shirley and Joe Welsh said that they were over-the-moon to hear their division one winner had discovered their life-changing windfall.
“We’re so happy to see the division one win go to a local winner, and we’re so happy for the Macksville community,” she said.
“This win was a long time coming for our community and store, and we couldn’t be happier. It’s been four years since we last sold a division one win. This is the start to a winning streak!
“Congratulations to our division one winner and we wish you all the best with your prize.”
