An Edithburgh dad has admitted he didn’t sleep a wink last night after discovering his million-dollar X Lotto win just before bedtime.

The South Australian held one of the four division one winning entries nationally in Monday & Wednesday X Lotto draw 4351 on Wednesday 27 December 2023. Each division one winning entry pocketed $1 million.

“I haven’t slept!” the winning man exclaimed when we contacted him this morning.

“I checked my ticket after the draw and kept looking at my phone saying, ‘this isn’t real’.

“I just kept looking at my ticket. There were too many zeros there!

“You always dream about winning but never think it’s going to happen.

“I’ve had these numbers for years. I picked them a long time ago, but I don’t remember where they came from.”

The loving dad struggled to hold back his tears when he contemplated the enormity of his prize and how he’d use it.

“It’s big,” he said.

“I’ll help the kids out.

“I’d also like to finish the house off.”
