Best friends win $825,551 Saturday X Lotto prize
17 June 2012
An Adelaide woman is this morning coming to terms with the news that her and her best friend are set to share $825,551, after striking it lucky in last night’s Saturday X Lotto draw.
As the winning entry was registered on an Easiplay Club membership when purchased at Northpark Newsagency in Prospect, SA Lotteries was able to contact the woman, who manages the two-person syndicate, with the good news.
“Oh my goodness, we’ve won how much?” the woman asked upon receiving the telephone call from SA Lotteries.
“I can’t wait to call my best friend to let her know that we’ve won. This is absolutely wonderful!” she exclaimed.
Despite being surprised by the news of the win, the woman already has plans for her share of the prize.
“I look forward to spending the money on my family, and I’ll definitely be going on a holiday,” she said.
The lucky locals shared last night’s $4.1 million Saturday X Lotto Division One prize pool with four interstate players.
SA Lotteries’ profits from Saturday X Lotto are distributed to State hospitals for the benefit of all South Australians.
