A Moonie Ponds man is finally allowing himself to celebrate his million-dollar Monday & Wednesday Lotto win after initially questioning if the life-changing news was true.

The inner Melbourne resident held the only division one winning entry in Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw 4157, drawn Wednesday 16 February 2022. He takes home $1 million.

This morning, the joyful man checked his entry at his local newsagency and was stunned by the life-changing news.

“Thank you so, so much! I didn’t believe it at first. I still can’t,” he shared.

“I decided to check my entry at my local newsagency, and I couldn’t comprehend it! I’d won a million dollars!

“I did a double-take, well more of a several take. I just kept checking my tickets – multiple times!

“I’ve been playing TattsLotto since the lottery game started, so it’s really nice to see a win.

“I’m glad it’s all confirmed now. It means I can finally celebrate. My partner and I will have to have a champagne or two tonight!

“The main plan is to pay off the house mortgage. It’s been a long wish of ours and we can finally do it.

“It’s a pleasant surprise!”

His winning entry was purchased at Puckle Street Newsagency, 45 Puckle Street, Moonee Ponds.

The Puckle Street Newsagency team said they’re excited to have sold a division one winning entry to a local customer and wish him all the best.
