Deer Park man’s workday happily interrupted by million-dollar Lotto win
While ploughing through his work emails and meetings, a Deer Park man has discovered he became a millionaire overnight thanks to a Monday & Wednesday Lotto win.
The Melbourne winner held one of the three division one winning entries nationally in Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw 4067, drawn Wednesday 12 May 2021. Each entry takes home a division one prize worth $1 million.
In addition to his division one prize, the man’s System 8 entry also won division three 12 times, division four 15 times and division six 10 times, bolstering his total windfall to $1,006,436.55.
“I’m in shock!” the winner declared when we called to confirm his win.
“I was already at work this morning and was checking my emails, and I thought I would just log in and see.
“I couldn’t believe it! I was tempted to just go straight home from work, but I’ve stayed.
“It’s a big moment! This is life-changing!
“I’ve been playing for years but I have never won anything like this. I’ve often thought about what I’d do if I won division one, but now that I have… it’s a shock.
“If I’m wise enough, this will mean an early retirement.
“I don’t have any celebrations planned for tonight. It will probably be a sleepless night to be honest as I think about everything I could do now that I’m a millionaire!”
