A Whyalla man has declared he might treat himself to a lobster and champagne lunch after discovering he won $800,000 this week in a Monday & Wednesday X Lotto draw.

The South Australian held one of the five division one winning entries in Monday & Wednesday X Lotto drawn Wednesday 26 July 2023. Each division one winning entry took home $800,000.

“Oh! That’s alright!” the unsuspecting winner cried when we made contact to reveal his good fortune.

“I’ve been playing for decades, but I only started playing these numbers last year.

“I thought you might have been a family member playing a joke on me.

“This doesn’t happen every day! I might go and have a lobster and champagne lunch to celebrate.

“I’m going to pay off the mortgage and help my children – this will give them a good deposit for houses of their own.

“I’d love to enjoy a holiday too!”

The man’s winning marked Pick 5 entry was purchased online at thelott.com – the official home of Australia’s official lotteries.
