Was one of your workmates a mystery no-show at work this morning? They may have had a very good reason.
An unnamed Canberra lottery player has kicked off the working week more than $1.4 million richer after checking their division one winning Saturday Lotto ticket.
The entry was one of the 14 division one winning entries across Australia in Lotto draw 4165, drawn Saturday 19 June 2021. Each entry won a division one prize of $1,428,571.43.
Canberra’s winning entry was purchased at the Million Dollar Kiosk in Westfield Shoppingtown, Belconnen.
Million Dollar Kiosk owner Nick Huynh said he was so excited to know one of his customers had walked away with a life-changing prize.
“We are so happy for our division one winner,” he said.
“Whoever they may be congratulations to them! We wish them all the best with their prize.
“We hope this is the beginning of plenty more wins for our customers.”
How the division one winner plans to spend their windfall remains a mystery as they have chosen to remain completely anonymous and celebrate in private.
It’s been a good month for ACT lottery players. On 8 June, a Canberra woman was declared the only winner of an Oz Lotto jackpot, pocketing a staggering $10,487,834.11.
The recently retired woman, who wished to remain anonymous, was the second person in less than a week to become an instant millionaire after a Canberra man won $1,172,770.07 in 5 June’s Lotto draw.
