The mystery of Murray Bridge’s latest X Lotto division one winner has been solved.

Up until today the identity of the winner of X Lotto draw 3805 remained unknown to SA Lotteries, who asked the winner to come forward.

A Murray Bridge woman, who wished to remain anonymous, has claimed the $990,000 prize.

The lucky lady said she was in disbelief when she heard the life-changing news.

“I walked past the newsagency and thought I should buy a ticket, and someone out there must have been looking after us,” she said.

“I can’t believe it. I cant stop stop shaking.

“Something told me I had to stop at the newsagent on Friday and buy a ticket.”

The winner said she planned to buy a house with the winnings and donate to a charity that was close to her.

“We believe in paying it forward so we’ll be helping out where we can.”

SA Lotteries is awaiting word from the winner of the $990,000 prize, who purchased their unregistered winning ticket from River Newsagency.

As the ticket was not registered to an Easiplay Club card SA Lotteries officials have no way of contacting the winner, who at this point may not be aware of the $990,000 financial boost they are set to receive.

The mystery winner was one of four division one winning entries nationally in X Lotto draw 3805 on Saturday January 6. Tatts spokesperson Bronnie Spencer said she was eager to confirm the news with Murray Bridge’s latest division one winner.

“Our winner could be a local or someone who was just passing through. Either way I’m sure they would love to discover they are now $990,000 richer.” she said.

River Newsagency’s Maxine Kluske said she looked forward to hearing from the winner.
