Favourite numbers win South Australian syndicate $1.4 million
3 June 2012
A three-person syndicate from Adelaide’s northern suburbs is celebrating the news that playing their favourite numbers has resulted in them winning a $1,416,306 Division One prize in last night’s Saturday X Lotto draw.
SA Lotteries was able to contact the syndicate manager with the million-dollar news, as the winning entry was registered on an Easiplay Club membership card when purchased at Salisbury North IGA.
“I’m close to tears,” the syndicate manager told SA Lotteries upon receiving the telephone call.
“We’ve been playing the same numbers for years, so we’re absolutely elated that they’ve come up,” he said.
South Australia’s winning syndicate shared last night’s $4.2 million Saturday X Lotto Division One prize pool with two interstate players.
SA Lotteries’ profits from Saturday X Lotto are distributed to State hospitals for the benefit of all South Australians.
