It’s raining winners this week! From Tassie to Alice Springs, Saturday Lotto saw an absolute downpour with a whopping seventeen division one winners crowned in one draw.
Catch up on the winning highlights:
Triumphant Alice Springs trio to celebrate in style
An Alice Springs trio started the week with an extra boost after they shared in the weekend’s Saturday Lotto division one prize.
Confirming the win, the private syndicate leader remarked that the incredible win had been a while coming, but he always had a feeling they’d win big one day.
“It’s a fantastic feeling. We’re all just very excited to have won,” he said.
“The win is going to make life a lot easier. We’re just so thankful!”
Generous Chambers Flat grandfather set to spoil family
A Chambers Flat grandfather joked was also coming to terms with his Saturday Lotto win this week. He joked his grandchildren had already submitted their winning wish list.
“I saw the numbers come up and I thought, ‘you beauty’, I’ve been using them since the day I started playing lotteries,” he said.
“Look, I love my family, and I’ll do whatever I can to help them. My grandkids know exactly what they want.
“They’ve also told me exactly what I need to do – buy myself a new car, specifically a Mustang. If it isn’t loud, I think my grandson will be very cross with me!”
Bangor mother to surprise beloved family with $25,000 Instant Scratch-Its win
It wasn’t just Lotto winners celebrating a major prize. A generous Bangor mum was also planning to spoil her family after she score the top prize on a winning $2 Instant Scratch-Its ticket.
“I’ve never won anything like this before. I normally grab Instant Scratch-Its tickets because it’s fun, so to have had this happen is fantastic,” she said.
“I didn’t believe it was true at first. I called my daughter and asked her to check the ticket as well so I could make sure I was right.
“The first thing I’ll do is share it with my children and family.”
Domino effect for Brighton woman with Set for Life win
Rounding out a week of great wins, we’re celebrating our 101st Set for Life winner.
When we called the victorious Victorian woman, she was patiently waiting by the phone to have her winning news confirmed.
“On Saturday, I checked the ticket near my children, and I yelled, ‘Oh my god! Oh my god!’” she said.
“It’s funny. I saw that someone had won division one in Set for Life recently in an online story and I decided to give it a go and purchase a ticket. I never expected to win division one myself!
“We were absolutely stunned. It’s hard to comprehend.”
We’ve got our umbrellas ready for the next storm of winners. Will one of them be you?
