Check out this week’s winning highlights.
Winning weekend for Saturday Lotto players
A group of Lotto lovers ended the weekend on a high, thanks to Saturday Lotto. There were five division one winning entries in the weekend’s draw, each taking home an incredible $1.3 million.
The wins landed far and wide, with two in Victoria and one each in New South Wales, Queensland and South Australia.
One of these winners was a Jamisontown grandfather who spilled his morning coffee when he discovered his division one win.
“I was absolutely gobsmacked. I spilled my coffee when I found it!" he laughed.
"As soon as I woke up, I went to my computer to check the results and to see if I was going to work this week.
“I always knew I was going to retire this year, but I didn’t expect I could retire so soon. This has brought my retirement plans forward. This is a great way to finish up.”
House mortgage to be paid off in full for Sylvania man
After years of playing the same numbers, a Sylvania man is now looking forward to paying his house mortgage off with his Monday & Wednesday Lotto division one win.
The jubilant man took home a $1 million prize.
“That’s unbelievable. That’s fantastic! I need to sit down. Oh my god! I had no idea. I’m flabbergasted,” he laughed.
“I’ve been playing the same numbers for years, they are all birthday numbers. I can’t believe it! I’ve just put a deposit down on a house but now I will be able to pay for it in full.”
Winning streak for Nambucca Heads man
Not only did a Nambucca Heads father score a free Lucky Lotteries ticket, but that ticket went on to win him a 1st Prize of $200,000.
When we dialled the man to confirm the life-enhancing news, he was struggling to come to terms with his windall.
“I can’t believe it, especially to win this prize on a free ticket!" he gushed.
"I feel very, very lucky. Things like this are great, aren’t they?
“I’ve been playing for such a long time, I buy tickets but I never expect to win so this is such a great surprise!”
We can’t wait to see what next week brings!
