Waking up from a Sunday morning sleep in is generally a great feeling. But waking up to find out you had won Saturday Lotto Division 1 and are now $671,585.32 richer would definitely beat that!
That’s what happened for an NSW man and longtime Oz Lotteries customer. The 53-year-old awoke on Sunday, went about his day, then checked his emails as he usually would. Only this time, there was an email notifying him that he had in fact won Saturday Lotto the previous evening.
The customer won Division 1 on his 38 x Standard Game Saturday Lotto ticket – a ticket that was purchased through Oz Lotteries’ AutoPlay feature. AutoPlay sets your chosen ticket to be purchased automatically for you in each draw. This particular ticket had been playing since June, and was certainly worth it!
The stunned man spent the day in shock and repeatedly checked his Oz Lotteries account to verify the Saturday Lotto results. When we finally got in touch this Monday morning, the winner was beyond words with happiness.
Because Division 1 prizes take time to process, the customer originally thought there was a mistake. When our customer support agent spoke with him to confirm the good news, he was overjoyed.
This past Saturday Lotto draw 3867 proved lucky for Oz Lotteries customers. Not only did we have our ecstatic Division 1 winner, but we also had another TWO Division 2 winners – both taking home $9,433.15.
One of the winners, a man from ACT, has been registered with Oz Lotteries for over 8 years!
The other… won on his first ticket! The customer registered on August 7 and purchased a regular 18 x Standard Games ticket for Saturday Lotto. Little did he know, luck was most definitely on his side.
It just goes to show – you have to be in it to win it!
