“This changes everything!”: Pakenham man scores momentous $1 million Monday Lotto win
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!”
