A Coolangatta man is contemplating a visit to the hospital to check he’s not having a heart attack after receiving the surprise news he won $9.41 million in today’s Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw.
The Queensland player won the Jackpot Prize of $9.41 million in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1534, drawn Thursday 20 May 2021.
When we called the Gold Coast resident, he was about to go on a work lunch break and had no idea he’d just become a multi-millionaire.
“Wait, hang on. Before you say anything, I need to get my wife, because I have a feeling you’re calling me about good news,” he giggled before his winning news was confirmed.
“Oh my god! Holy sh**!
“My god! I can’t believe this.
“I rarely get excited about anything, but right now I feel like I am almost too excited. My heart is about to beat out of my chest.
“Has anyone ever had a heart attack after receiving a call like this? I think I could! I think my wife could too!
“We need to sit down or we might end up in a hospital!
“Thank you so very much.
“I just finished a work meeting right before this and now you’re telling me I am rich?!
“I was just going to have something at home with my wife for lunch, but now I think we will have to go out to a nice restaurant to celebrate.
“I am completely blown away! You’ve completely changed my plans for the day now!”
When asked how he planned to enjoy his windfall, the newly minted multi-millionaire said he’d be making concrete plans over lunch.
“We have a few bills we want to pay and of course, we will help our family,” he explained.
“There will definitely be a few holidays and things like that too. But honestly, I have no idea.”
