TWO brothers who buy their Saturday lotto entries together from Murwillumbah won a first division on the weekend.

The ticket winning more than $350,000 was bought from Sunnyside Newsagency and Office City.

It is the sixth time a first division prize was won on a ticket bought from the newsagency.

Sunnyside Newsagency manager Sheraden Robins said all winners were recorded on plaques on the wall.

"Someone won the first division of $680,000 last year," Ms Robins said.

The brothers, who won the first division of $351,746.42, did not want to be identified.

"We've been buying Saturday Lotto tickets together every week for around three and a half years," one of the winning brothers said.

"Each of us are planning to do some home renovations with our half of the money.

"It's great to be able to share a win like this.

"We've already booked a holiday away together with our wives to celebrate!" he added.

Throughout Australia, there were 12 entries that won a first division share of Saturday Lotto's estimated $4 million division one prize pool on the weekend.

The winning numbers in Saturday Lotto draw 3287 on 19 January 2013 were 4, 25, 11, 16, 19 and 14 with the supplementary numbers 34 and 18.
