A Newtown man went to bed last night dreaming of one day owning a Landrover Defender, and this morning discovered that dream might now become a reality after he became an overnight Lotto millionaire. 

The Sydney man in his 40s held one of the two division one winning entries in Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw 4107, drawn Wednesday 25 August 2021.  He scored the division one prize of $1 million. 

When we reached out to the winning man this morning with the life-changing news, he burst out laughing. 

“This is unbelievable!” he screamed. 

“This has come at such a good time as I’ve been worried about my job lately. 

“I’m very happy, extremely happy. 

“It’s the weirdest thing. Last night I was looking at Landrover Defenders – they’re my favourite car. I never do that. And now this! 

“I think I’ll pay off the mortgage first, but after that… who knows? 

“This ticket was pretty much a one-off. I’ve never really played Monday & Wednesday Lotto before! 

“I had a small win on a Powerball ticket last week, and I was going to use that to play on Monday, but I ended up getting a QuickPick into last night’s draw instead. 

“It was totally off the cuff! 

“This is the best morning phone call I’ve ever had.” 

His winning 24-game QuickPick entry was purchased online at thelott.com – Australia’s official lotteries.
