A Strathfield man says he thought his heart was going to leap out of his chest when he checked his Monday & Wednesday Lotto ticket to discover he’d woken up a millionaire.   

The Sydney resident held one of the two division one winning entries nationally in Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw 3942, drawn Monday 27 January 2020. Each entry took home a division one prize of $1,000,000. 

Confirming his win with us this morning, the man revealed he’d made the life-changing discovery last night. 

“I checked my ticket on the app late last night,” he explained. 

“My heart was pumping out of my chest. It was beating so fast. 

“I couldn’t believe it. I was awake all night! 

“I knew you’d call me this morning and I knew I wouldn’t believe the news until I heard from you. 

“I’m so tired but I am so happy!

“It’s the best news and the best way to start the year!”

The hardworking winner said despite the exciting news, he showed up to work as normal today. 

“I’m at work this morning but it’s hard to concentrate,” he laughed. 

“I will certainly keep working but exactly what I will do with my prize I will just have to wait and see. 

“I need to calm down before I make any decisions!” 

The winning entry was purchased online at thelott.com – Australia’s official lotteries.
