Wollongong store syndicate celebrates Cashcade win!
There are ten happy Monday & Wednesday Lotto players in Wollongong today after their System 9 division two syndicate entry won a total of $529,951.30, or $52,995.14 per share, in last night’s Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw!
Thanks to NSW Lotteries’ Cashcades promotion, the $1 million division one prize was cascaded down to division two and shared among the division two winning entries – boosting their regular division two prize. This resulted in the ten players sharing in an additional $500,000!
The ten syndicate members were part of a division two winning store syndicate sold at Centretown Newsagency, Shop 1, 143 Crown Street in Wollongong.
One of the ten syndicate members, a hard working single mum, was gobsmacked when she realised the store syndicate ticket she was holding had won her almost $53,000!
“I’m still in shock – I just can’t believe it!” the excited mum of three exclaimed.
“I went into the outlet to check my ticket this morning and I couldn’t believe it. I thought it was a mistake. I’m just so overwhelmed!”
The winner said she often plays Monday & Wednesday Lotto but bought the syndicate share because she saw the Cashcades promotion.
“I saw the poster for Cashcades and thought the odds were pretty good as there isn’t always a division one winner,” she explained.
“This couldn’t have come at a better time!” Maria Colla is the owner of Centretown Newsagency and was thrilled to have sold the Cashcade winning syndicate for ten excited customers.
“Wow! This is fantastic news!” Ms Colla exclaimed.
“The first thing I noticed when we got the results and saw that we had sold a division two winning syndicate in Cashcades.
“This is great news for our customers! This was an extra syndicate we set up just for the Cashcades promotion so it’s very exciting!
“Some of the winners have come in to check their tickets already and they have been over-the-moon! $52,995.14 is a great kick start for the week – especially after Easter.”
