“I thought it was an April Fool’s joke!”
Another Oz Lotteries winner has taken home a Division 1 prize, this time in the recent $20 million Superdraw. The lucky winner, a man in his 60s from Cronulla in New South Wales, said he hadn’t told anyone about the win prior to speaking with Oz Lotteries customer support because he thought the news was a joke. After all, we did call him on April Fool’s Day to confirm the win!
When asked if the winner had ever thought it would be possible to win, he said “no, not at all.”
“I’ve never won anything like this in my life. I’m in a bit of a shock.”
After waking up on Sunday morning to realise he had matched all six winning Saturday Lotto numbers, our Superdraw winner said it would still take some time to think about how he planned to use the amazing windfall.
“I haven’t thought about it… [but] this couldn’t have come at a better time. One of my businesses has failed so I’m struggling.”
The other Division 1 winners were located across Australia – two each in Victoria, New South Wales and Western Australia, and one each in Queensland, South Australia and the Northern Territory.
A syndicate of ten members located in North Tamborine, Queensland, shared in a total prize pool of $2,251,563.43 after their System 10 entry also won Division 3 24 times and Division 4 90 times. The syndicate had been playing together for twelve years!
The winning numbers in Saturday Lotto draw 3933 on Saturday 30 March 2019 were 8, 31, 33, 26, 27 and 5, plus supplementary numbers 11 and 22.
