A young eastern Sydney dad has thanked his favourite numbers for delivering him a life-changing million-dollar Wednesday Lotto windfall. 

The New South Wales player held one of the two division one winning entries nationally in Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw 3881, drawn Wednesday 26 June 2019.

Each entry took home the guaranteed division one prize of $1 million. 

When we contacted the man this morning to break the exciting news, the thrilled father revealed he’d been expecting the phone call. 

"I think I know why you’re calling,” he laughed. 

“But I am just not sure if this is all real. 

“I checked the results online last night and instantly recognised that all the winning numbers were very familiar and that they were all my favourite numbers. 

“But I just didn’t think I would have won division one! 

“They are all special numbers, my favourite numbers and birthdates of family members. 

“I always believed they’d come up one day but I just didn’t know when!” 

When the news started to sink in the winner revealed exactly how he’d enjoy his million-dollar prize. 

“It’s sensational! I can’t describe how I am feeling but it’s definitely pretty cool!” he exclaimed.

“I will keep working for sure but I can’t wait to take my family on an extended holiday. 

“I will also be able to pay off the mortgage. 

“This will definitely make the future so much easier for us!” 

The winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his marked entry online at thelott.com – Australia’s official lotteries.
