A tight-knit group of friends from north-west Sydney are celebrating the revelation they won division one in the weekend’s Saturday Lotto draw. 

The private syndicate held one of the eight division one winning entries across the country in Saturday Lotto draw 4085 on Saturday 12 September 2020. Each entry won a division one prize of $621,499.92. 

In addition to winning division one, the group’s marked System 7 entry also scored division three 6 times, bolstering the total windfall to $629,280.42. 

However, the friends were unaware of their win until we reached out to the syndicate leader this morning. 

“F*** off!” she screamed when she realised how much she and her friends had won. 

“I feel sick. I’m shaking. 

“Oh my god. I had no idea. I’ve been slack checking my ticket. 

“It’s amazing. There’s seven of us in it. We’ve had this syndicate for about two and a half years. It’s paid off! That’s about $90,000 each! 

“I’m going to do a joint call with everyone after this to break the news to them.” 

The syndicate leader predicted the win would make a huge difference to each member of the winning group. 

“This is amazing. They’re going to be so happy!” she said.

“I don’t know what I’ll do with mine just yet, but probably put it into my savings to buy my very first home.”  

The winning group purchased their marked System 7 entry online at thelott.com – Australia’s official lotteries.
