A hardworking Penrith woman and her family are happily planning a cruise together to celebrate their million-dollar Lotto windfall.
The family syndicate was one of the three division one winners in last night’s Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw 3710. Each takes home the guaranteed division one prize of $1 million.
Speaking to a NSW Lotteries official this morning to confirm her win, the syndicate leader described the moment she discovered the win.
“I was just watching television last night and I was flicking between stations and the Lotto numbers popped up. I thought they’re my numbers and so I went online to check!” she said.
“These are the numbers I’ve had for decades – they’re a combination of family birthdates. My husband had some nips of port and I had a drink to celebrate!”
The happy woman said she quickly phoned family members phoned to share the winning news.
“We’re a very close family. We’ve decided with what we’re going to do with most of it already!” she laughed.
“We’re going to go on a cruise all together! And everyone is getting something.”
The winning marked 14-game entry was purchased from Westfield Penrith.
Lal’s Nextra owner Shiu Lal said the outlet was celebrating selling another winning entry to their customers.
“We sold a Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot 1st Prize winning entry earlier this year and now a division one,” Shiu said.
“It’s very good! The staff are all very happy!”
The winning numbers in Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw 3710 were 7, 17, 22, 10, 3 and 33. The supplementary numbers were 40 and 4.
