Oz Lotteries Member Wins Division 1 With AutoPlay
2 min read
You may have heard about our awesome AutoPlay feature. It allows you to set and forget your favourite tickets to ensure you never miss a draw! For one Oz Lotteries member from Western Australia, her AutoPlay strategy paid dividends (literally!). Her AutoPlay ticket won Division 1 in this week’s $1,000,000 Monday Lotto draw!
Our Monday Lotto winner set up her 4-game Standard AutoPlay ticket to be entered in each week’s Monday Lotto draw. The lucky winner said it was “amazing” to have peace of mind knowing that she would never miss a draw. She uses the AutoPlay credit card top-up method. This means that even if there are no funds in her Oz Lotteries account, her ticket will still be purchased by deducting the funds automatically when needed. There’s no need the remember to login and deposit funds. AutoPlay makes future lotto tickets simpler than ever.
“It doesn’t have to be a large amount,” she told us, with her $2.80 weekly ticket as evidence.
The woman was on her way to work when our Customer Support team called to let her know the good news. She hadn’t checked her email inbox yet for results of the Monday Lotto draw. So, she had no idea that she was a new millionaire! She asked if she could get off the phone to check her numbers and make sure it wasn’t a hoax. Of course – it wasn’t! Oz Lotteries is an official online retailer of Australian lotto games. We guarantee that all tickets purchased are entered into the official lottery.
Our winner decided to continue with her work day as planned. Saying that the winnings will ease the financial pressure on her and her husband, but that she enjoyed teaching and running her own business. “We’re not extravagant people,” she said.
“I’ve tried not to focus on what I don’t have and be grateful for what I do have.”
The winnings will be used to pay off the mortgage, start a family, clear debts, and help the extended family. Feeling “relieved and excited”, the woman said that she had told her husband that they had won some money. However, she was saving the surprising total amount for later that evening over “a few drinks”. “The reality of it has not really sunk in!”
The winning 4-game Standard AutoPlay ticket was purchased online from Oz Lotteries. The winning numbers from Monday Lotto draw 3656 on the 1st of May were 14, 6, 17, 18, 25, and 11. Finally, supplementary numbers 16 and 42.
You could be Australia’s next multi-millionaire, but you have to be in it to win it! You can buy your official lottery ticket online up until 7:25pm AEST on the day of the draw.
