The winning group syndicate was set up by Racecourse Lucky Lotto & News, Shop 4, 338-390 Racecourse Road, Newmarket.
Racecourse Lucky Lotto & News owner Ngoc Nguyen said he was thrilled his outlet had set up a winning syndicate entry.
“It was a brand new syndicate we set up for this week’s Double Your Win promotion!” he exclaimed.
“It was set up for Monday Lotto and Wednesday Lotto so we hope we double our win with another division one winning syndicate entry on Wednesday!”
This week’s Monday & Wednesday Lotto draws (draw 3896 and 3897) are offering Double Your Win, where the prize in divisions two to six is automatically doubled.
Tatts spokesperson Bronwyn Spencer said some members of the winning syndicate held unregistered entries and may be yet to discover their winning news.
“What a great way to start your working week – discovering you’ve pocketed more than $100,000!” she said.
“While we’ll be reaching out to those syndicate members who registered their entry to their Tatts Cards, there are several syndicate members who have unregistered entries and may not yet know they’re part of this winning group.
“If you purchased a share in a syndicate for this week’s Monday Lotto draw, today’s the day to check it! If you discover you’re holding a winning share, call Tatts on 131 868 to start the prize claim process!”
