“It’s mind-boggling!”: Port Macquarie man floored by $1 million X Lotto win
A Port Macquarie man was so shocked by the news he’d won division one in last night’s Monday Lotto draw that he dropped to the floor and started screaming.
The New South Wales winner held one of the four division one winning entries in Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw 4082, drawn Monday 31 May 2021. The player takes home a division one prize of $1 million.
When our team called the winner, he was completely oblivious to the fact he’d become an overnight millionaire.
“I was just checking my Lotto ticket right as you called me,” he admitted.
“I think I have all of the winning numbers! Is that true? Is that why you are calling me?
“I can’t believe it! Are you joking?
“I need to literally pick myself up off the floor.
“God I am so happy!
“I am really struggling to digest this news.
“It’s quite mind-boggling!
“It’s just absolutely wonderful, wonderful news.
“I am going to have to do something special to celebrate.”
When asked how he planned to enjoy his windfall, the elated winner said he needed time to let the news sink in.
“Oh god, I don’t know what I will do with it!” he laughed.
“I need to stop and really think about this.
“It will certainly make a big difference to my life.”
His winning 18-game QuickPick entry was purchased at Settlement City Newsagency & LPO, Shop 17 Settlement City Shopping Centre, Cnr Bay Street & Park Street, Port Macquarie.
Settlement City Newsagency & LPO owner Bhavna Hinduja said she was celebrating an exciting milestone.
“We are so excited,” she said.
“Yesterday was our very first day as owners of this shop!
“We can’t believe we’ve already had a division one win. We were dreaming of this moment and it’s already here.
“Congratulations to our winner. We wish you all the best with your prize.
“Fingers crossed this is the start of a winning streak.”
