Life is looking much brighter today for a young Southern Sydney family after they learned they were $1 million richer.

The family was the only winner in Monday & Wednesday Lotto drawn on Monday 17 September 2018, winning the guaranteed division one prize of $1 million.

When we spoke with the delighted family this morning, the dad revealed what this win means for him and his young family.

“Wow!” he exclaimed.

“This is life-changing. Truly life-changing.”

The thrilled winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his 24-game QuickPick entry online at – Australia’s official lotteries.

When asked about how he planned to spend his win, the family man explained:

“We’ll pay off our debts and finally buy a house!

“We’ll also put some money aside for our son – something for the future.”

This win is the eighth time this calendar year a Southern Sydney local has won Monday & Wednesday Lotto or Saturday Lotto with five of these wins creating millionaires.

Is it your turn next?
