A Kelso man is looking forward to getting a good night’s sleep after admitting he’s barely slept since realising he was a Saturday Lotto division one winner on the weekend.

The Bathurst man held one of the nine division one winning entries in Saturday Lotto draw 4247 on Saturday 2 April 2022. Each division one winning entry scored $606,096.94. The man also won division three and division four multiple times, bolstering his win to $614,452.99.

Confirming his win with our team this morning, the elated man said while the win had yet to fully sink in, it would make life a lot easier moving forward.

“I can’t believe I’ve actually won!” he proclaimed.

“It was almost 10pm on Saturday night and I thought, ‘well, I guess I should check that ticket,’ and when the screen displayed I’d won, I struggled to understand what it meant!

“Once I realised it was real, I was jumping around, screaming and carrying on. It’s the first time I’ve won anything significant.

“I haven’t slept many hours since then, so I’m very tired this morning.

“I’m not going to be silly about it. I’m ready to retire in the next couple of years, so this is just going to make it so much easier.”

The Kelso resident shared he’d been usinghis “wonderful” winning numbers since he first began playing lotteries decades ago.

“I’ve always bought tickets in Saturday Lotto and always used the same numbers,” he said.

“This is just incredible.”

The winning marked System 8 entry was purchased at Trinity News & Gifts, Shop 7 Trinity Heights Shopping Centre, Cnr Marsden St and Gilmour St, Kelso.
