Nightcliff retiree lost for words after million-dollar Wednesday Lotto discovery
A Nightcliff retiree has found himself speechless after discovering the million-dollar news he scored division one in last night’s Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw.
The Darwin local held the only division one winning entry across Australia in TattsLotto draw 3941, drawn Wednesday 22 January 2020, taking home a division one prize of $1,000,000.
Confirming his million-dollar win with us this morning, the man explained he’d just checked his ticket at his local newsagency.
“Thank you!” he laughed eventually.
“Wow. I can’t believe it.
“What a great morning to discover I’m a millionaire!
“I’ve been playing for decades. It’s great news.
“I can’t believe it.”
When asked how he planned to enjoy his prize, the winner said he’d need to let the news sink in.
“I have no idea,” he laughed.
“I’m going to have to really think about it.
“I’ll certainly be able to enjoy my retirement.”
The happy winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his winning entry at Nightcliff Newsagency, Shop 15, 159 Dickward Drive, Nightcliff.
Nightcliff Newsagency owner Tracey-Ann Chin said she couldn’t be happier for her regular customer.
“We were exetremely excited when we realised we’d sold the division one winning entry,” she said.
“We’re so glad to see this prize has gone to one of our local customers.
“2020 has already been a winning year for us, just a couple of weeks ago we sold a division two winning TattsLotto entry.
“We hope there’s plenty more this year!”
