A mystery Moree resident is sporting a million-dollar smile after learning of their $1.4 million division one win in Saturday Lotto draw 3749.

But just exactly how the new millionaire will spend their windfall will forever remain a mystery as the Moree winner has chosen to remain completely anonymous.

The excited winner bought their winning 36-game QuickPick from Balo Square Newsagency in Balo Square Shopping Centre, Moree.   

Balo Square Newsagency owner Rhonda Karam said she was over the moon to have sold another division one winning ticket.

“We love helping make our customers’ dreams come true!” she said.

“We’ve had a pretty good run of it too – we’ve got 14 major prize plaques hanging on the wall.

“We’re thrilled for our latest winner and wish them all the best.”

The largest prize delivered to date by Balo Square Newsagency was back in 2002, when a customer landed $15 million in Powerball draw 297.

Other notable wins include three Saturday Lotto division one prizes of $400,000, $947,368.43 and $1.1 million since 2003, as well as a $600,000 Monday and Wednesday Lotto win in 2010.

The six winning numbers in Saturday Lotto draw 3749 on Saturday, June 24 were 29, 43, 5, 13, 32 and 1. The supplementary numbers were 40 and 38.

Across Australia there were 15 division one winning entries in the $21 million Saturday superdraw, with each taking home a division one prize of $1.4 million. 

The winning entries included five from New South Wales, two from Queensland, two from Victoria, one from South Australia, two from the Northern Territory and three from Western Australia.

The Lotto’s division one winning tally has now reached 404 so far this financial year, including 114 won by NSW Lotteries customers.
