He may have been through a few hardships of late, but a Pakenham man says life has been completely changed for the better thanks to his $1 million Monday Lotto win. 

The Victorian held one of the two division one winning entries nationally in Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw 4100 on Monday 2 August 2021. Each division one winning entry scored $1 million. 

When we called the winner this morning, he was completely oblivious he’d become an overnight millionaire thanks to his division one win. 

“What!? I had no idea! Well, isn’t this a lovely surprise,” he laughed after a moment of silence. 

“This is unbelievable! What!? I just can’t believe it. 

“I feel like jumping up and down and screaming right now. 

“I’m a millionaire! 

“I have been in and out of work and doing it quite a bit tough lately, so honestly, the timing couldn't be better. 

“This changes everything for me! It’s the best news I could have hoped for. 

“I can’t wait to tell my family and go out for a nice lunch to celebrate! They are going to be so excited.” 

When asked how he planned to enjoy life as a millionaire, the stoked bloke said it made things a lot easier. 

“I can’t explain how much this means to me. I recently was considering making some tough changes in my life, but now, that doesn’t have to happen!” he laughed. 

“So I’ll pay the mortgage, and I’d really like to do a few things around the house, make some upgrades. 

“No doubt there will be a few holidays, and I might even get myself a boat for some big fishing trips!” 

His winning 50-game QuickPick entry was purchased online at thelott.com – Australia’s official lotteries.
