From trash to treasure: Revesby man almost throws out million-dollar winning Lotto ticket
A Revesby man has had to rummage through his bin this morning to find a million-dollar Lotto ticket that he’d accidentally thrown away.
The Sydney player held one of the two division one winning entries in Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw 4111, drawn Wednesday 8 September 2021. They scored the division one prize of $1 million.
Sharing his shock with us this morning, the winning man said he was still reeling from finding his ticket in his bin.
“Oh my god,” he laughed.
“You wouldn’t believe it, I accidentally threw my ticket out, and I just had to go looking through the bins for the ticket. But we found it!
“I cannot believe it. I can’t believe we threw out that ticket.
“It’s incredible. To be honest, I am in shock.
“I am very, very happy. But I am in shock.
“This is going to change our lives in such a big way!”
“We will try to find a new house, and maybe even buy a new car, mine is so old.
“I’m very, very happy. This is amazing!”
His winning marked System 9 entry was purchased at T&L Newsagency, Shop 10, 64 Beaconsfield Street, Revesby.
