“I need to take a deep breath!” Collingwood man in disbelief after winning million-dollar Monday & Wednesday Lotto prize
A Collingwood man has been left shellshocked on the way to work this morning after discovering he won a million-dollar prize in last night’s Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw.
The Melbourne player held one of three division one winning entries in Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw 4313, drawn Wednesday 16 August 2023.
In addition to the $1 million division one prize, the Victorian resident’s marked System entry also scored a number of divisional prizes, bolstering his total win to $1,071,582.25.
When we contacted the winner this morning, he confessed he had almost forgotten to buy a ticket into the draw.
“It was just before the Matilda’s game, and I thought I better go get it!” he exclaimed.
“Oh my god! I feel very grateful!
“I need to take a deep breath.”
When asked how he might enjoy his newfound fortune, the Victorian resident revealed he would like to set up his family for the future.
“It will be a great help to my family,” he said.
“We will be able to live more comfortably.
“It’s a great feeling! Thank you so much!”
The winning marked 2-game System entry was purchased online at thelott.com – the official home of Australia’s lotteries.
