Five Gawler shoppers will be sporting winning smiles this week after their syndicate landed division one in the weekend’s Saturday X Lotto draw.
The store syndicate held one of the nine division one winning entries in Saturday X Lotto draw 3843 on Saturday 19 May 2018. Three of the division one winning entries were from South Australia.
The syndicate scored the division one prize of $461,555.44, with each of the five syndicate members taking home a $92,311.09 share.
However, as some of the store syndicate shares were unregistered – some members may have yet to discover their winning news.
The syndicate’s 100-game QuickPick entry was from Gawler Green Newsagency, Shop 9, Gawler Green Shopping Centre, 491 Main North Road, Evanston.
It’s the third division one winning entry sold from Gawler Green Newsagency during the past 12 months.
In June last year, a Monday & Wednesday X Lotto player pocketed $1 million, while another customer won a division one prize of more than $716,000 last August.
One Gawler syndicate member said he was happy to share the division one prize win others in the syndicate.

“This is so exciting. I can’t believe this is a reality for us all. It is a really good feeling. I am so happy our syndicate won!” he exclaimed.

“We checked our numbers straight away and we were so shocked. We had to check the numbers multiple times before we believed it. There were lots of tears and we couldn’t sleep that night.

“We had some champagne on Saturday night and will do something this weekend, but we haven’t thought about it really.

“We are going to use our share towards a holiday and renovations on the house. We had been trying to figure out what renovations we could afford to do, but now we can do it all!”
Gawler Green Newsagency owner Barry Humphries said he was “over the moon” his outlet had sold another division one winning entry.
“We’re really excited! I don’t know how it keeps happening but it keeps happening,” he said.
“This is a regular syndicate we run, but different people buy into it each time.
“We’ve had two of the syndicate members come in already. That’s the beautiful thing – you get some people who you know this will really change their lives.”
The six winning numbers in Saturday X Lotto draw 3842 on Saturday 19 May 2018 were 42, 33, 39, 6, 21 and 9.  The
supplementary numbers were 19 and 40.
Across Australia there were nine division one winning entries in Saturday X Lotto draw 3843 – five from Victoria, three from South Australia, and one from Queensland.
Of the nine division one winning entries, three were held by syndicates.
The Lott’s division one winning tally has now reached 384 so far this financial year, including 36 won by SA Lotteries customers.
