LADY Luck has landed in Bathurst, with an unregistered Oz Lotto player winning a massive $20 million in Tuesday night’s draw.
The winning ticket, brought at News on William, is one of the biggest lottery wins the city has ever seen.
Newsagent Adrian Smith, said he got a call late Tuesday night saying his newsagent had sold the winning ticket.
He said it was very exciting.
“This is huge,” he said.
Mr Smith said Bathurst was buzzing with excitement on Wednesday after news someone in the community had won $20 million.
“This is the biggest prize our outlet has ever sold! It’s so incredibly exciting!” he said.
“We’ve had plenty of customers coming in to check their tickets, hoping it’s them!
“There’s so much excitement in the community, it’s fantastic.
“We hope our winner realises their good fortune sooner rather than later.”
It’s been about three years since News on William sold a winning ticket with the last one in the vicinity of $1.6 million.
The New South Wales entry was the only division one winning entry nationally in Oz Lotto draw 1302, drawn Tuesday, January 29, 2019. The winner will take home the entire division one prize pool of $20 million.
