A Maitland man has confessed he hasn’t slept a wink since discovering he’d won more than $615,000 in the weekend’s Lotto Strike draw.

The New South Wales resident held the only division one winning entry in Lotto Strike draw 5331, drawn Saturday 9 September 2023 and pocketed the entire $615,902 division one prize.

“Wow. I’m a bit emotional! I haven’t slept at all,” he said when we reached out to confirm his newfound fortune this morning. 

“It was a last-minute decision. I have only entered Lotto Strike three or four times and I bought the ticket just before the draw closed on Saturday night.

“I don’t even know what to say. I’m speechless.

“To get the phone call confirming it, is just surreal.

“We have been through a fair bit recently, so it means a lot.

“It’s going to change everything.

“I’ll be able to buy a house for my family and take some days off work.

“Thank you so much.”

His winning four-game QuickPick was purchased online at thelott.com – the official home of Australia’s lotteries.
