A Kogarah dad says he plans to spoil his family rotten after discovering he’s spent the week unaware he’s a Monday Lotto millionaire.
The southern Sydney player held the only division one winning entry nationally in Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw 3946, drawn Monday 10 February 2020, taking home a division one prize of $1,000,000.
Sharing his excitement with us official this morning, the man said he’d just made the discovery of a lifetime.
“Are you serious?” he questioned.
“Oh my god. I can’t believe it.
“I only just remembered I had a ticket which had been sitting in my glove box all week.
“I just went to the newsagency and got them to check it and all of a sudden the computer went all funny!
“It’s unbelievable. Is this a dream?
“I can’t wait for my wife to come home so I can tell her!
“I’m flabbergasted. The most I’ve even won in my life is about $50!”
When asked how he planned to enjoy his million-dollar windfall, the shocked winner said his prize would be life changing.
“To win one million dollars for me, my wife and my children is absolutely amazing,” he gushed.
“I’m going to help out my beautiful children and I’m going to spoil my wife and entire family rotten.
“I can’t wait to surprise them with his news!
“This will really set me up for retirement. We have so many options now!
“We will probably take a big break. Once the news sinks in I’m sure I’ll think of plenty more things!
“This is what dreams are made of! It’s unbelievable!
“I’m just over the moon!”
