Two western Sydney men have had an unforgettable start to the week, both discovering they’re suddenly millionaires after taking home division one in the weekend’s Saturday Lotto draw.

The New South Wales players held two of the six division one winning entries across Australia in Saturday Lotto draw 4191 on 18 September 2021. Each division one winning entry won a prize of $1,048,320.62.

Last minute decision changes Homebush man’s life in a “big way”

A Homebush man has explained the Saturday Lotto entry that made him a millionaire on the weekend was purchased just moments before the draw closed.

Confirming his win with an official from The Lott this morning, the Sydney player said he was still wrapping his head around his incredible win.

“Thank you,” he laughed.

“I feel weird.

“I bought the ticket really last minute, just before the draw closed.

“I feel pretty happy, but certainly very strange.

“I just need lockdown to end so I can go out and celebrate!

“This changes everything. I will certainly be taking a holiday as soon as I can.”

His life-changing 36-game QuickPick entry was purchased online at thelott.com – Australia’s official lotteries.
