New car and new home for Elizabeth man after Saturday X Lotto division one win!
An Elizabeth man in his 30s has spent the weekend shopping for a new car and a new house after discovering he is now $603,000 richer from winning division one in Saturday’s X Lotto draw.
The thrilled man’s entry was one of the seven division one winning entries nationally and the only division one winning entry from South Australia. Each entry took home a division one prize of $603,397.66.
As well as winning division one, the Elizabeth man also won division five, bolstering his total prize to $603,419.11.
When an SA Lotteries official made contact with him the morning, the thrilled winner revealed he was already out car shopping.
“Well I am actually just at a car yard!” the winner laughed.
“I have a very good idea why you are calling.
“I checked my ticket on the app on the weekend and I saw that I had won!
“I was checking each line and I won something on one line and it wasn’t until I got to the last line I saw that I had six numbers.
“I was very excited to see that I was a winner! We’ve well and truly already planned how to spend it.
“I’ll be putting my win towards a new car and I’ve also picked out a house as well!
“We’ve spent the weekend looking around and decided where we want to buy.”
The thrilled winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his 18-game QuickPick entry online at thelott.com - Australia’s official lotteries.
