A Bendigo man has confessed he went pale from the shock of checking his Monday & Wednesday Lotto ticket before going to bed last night and discovering he was now a millionaire.

The victorious Victorian held one of the three division one winning entries in Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw 4154, drawn Monday 7 February 2022, and takes home a total prize of $1,004,174.35.

Speaking with our team this morning, the gleeful man was in high spirits following the revelation.

“This is no joke, right? It’s unbelievable,” he cheered.

“My wife is sitting next to me in complete awe. We’re in disbelief!

“Straight after the draw, I opened The Lott app to check my results before bed. That’s when I saw we’d won a million dollars! I ran straight to my wife, and she said I turned grey.

“We couldn’t go to sleep for the first hour or so. We couldn’t believe it.

“I’ve played Lotto for over 30 years with a combination of special numbers – consisting of family dates.

“Thank you very much!” 

While the prize offers the potential for a lavish holiday or a new car, the north-west Victoria resident confessed he was too stunned to make any concrete plans at this stage.

“We will have to sit back and take it all in. We’re not too sure at this stage on what we will spend the prize on, but I’m sure it will be put to good use,” he said.

The life-changing marked System 8 QuickPick was purchased online at thelott.com – the official home of Australia’s lotteries.
