Double division one delight: Two Melburnians become overnight Lotto millionaires
Two Melburnians are finishing the financial year as newly-minted millionaires after each scored division one in last night’s Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw.
The duo each held one of the four division one winning entries in Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw 4299 on Wednesday 28 June 2023. Each scored a $1 million division one prize.
Sleepless night for South Melbourne’s new millionaire
A South Melbourne man has confessed he didn’t get a wink of sleep last night after checking his Monday & Wednesday Lotto ticket before bed and discovering his division one win.
“I’ve checked the ticket about 100 times since and I even bought the paper this morning to double-check the numbers,” the man laughed when we called to confirm his win.
“When I was checking my ticket, I first saw I had five numbers and thought, ‘you beauty’, but then I saw I had all six numbers!
“This is going to be life changing. I’ve had a hundred thousand thoughts running through my head.
“The priority is getting myself my own home.
“This is probably the best call I’ve received in my life!
“I’m a dreamer! But it can’t come true if you don’t dream!”
His winning 24-game QuickPick was purchased at South Melbourne Lotto, Shop G09, 265 Clarendon Street, South Melbourne.
South Melbourne Lotto owner Chris Wilson said he was happily surprised by the news he’d sold his first Monday & Wednesday Lotto division one winning entry.
“I’ve owned the business since 2018 and we’ve had three division one wins in five years, which isn’t bad,” he said.
“I’m sure everyone will be excited by the news. It makes winning a division one prize real and shows it’s within the reach of anybody that has a ticket.
“I’d like to wish the winner all the best, and whilst I don’t know who it is, I hope that in these difficult times, they will be able to pay off their mortgage, take a holiday and become debt free. It’s fantastic news!”

An Oakleigh man had this morning’s grocery shop interrupted by the revelation he’d scored division one in last night’s Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw.
“I’m just shaking. Oh my lord! I’m speechless,” the unsuspecting winner exclaimed when his win was confirmed.
“I’m out getting groceries but now I can’t even drive the car. I don’t know what to buy at the shops.
“Honestly, I don’t know how to say thank you. It’s lifechanging for my family. It is going to help us so much. I’m even going to look for a house.
“I was just thinking yesterday that I needed to get a new TV. That’s the first thing I’m going to do this morning!
“I always play my numbers, which includes my wife’s birthday and my kid’s birthdays.
“I was hoping one day it would come… and it’s my time now.
“You’re like my angel!”
