A Pyrmont man says he felt like he was dreaming when he received a phone call this morning with the news he was last night’s Lotto Strike division one winner. 

The New South Wales player held the only division one winning entry in Lotto Strike draw 5003, drawn Wednesday 4 August 2021 and takes home the entire division one prize of $165,041.35.

This morning we contacted the man, who hadn’t yet checked his online entry. 

“Thank you so much,” he said. 

“That’s amazing! I am elated. 

“It’s been a really, really tough time with this lockdown, so this is really nice news. 

“This couldn’t have come at a better time. I am so happy. 

“I feel like I am dreaming. It’s very hard to comprehend. 

“I’ll find a way to celebrate in lockdown!” 

With a division one prize about to land in his bank account, the Sydney man said he’d spend his time in lockdown making plans. 

“This will be life-changing in a big way,” he declared. 

“I am not sure exactly what I will do with my prize, but it will certainly go very far.” 

The thrilled player purchased his winning entry online at thelott.com – Australia’s official lotteries.
