“Is this a dream?”: Sutherland Shire man discovers $1 million Lotto win while walking his dog!
A Sutherland Shire couple have joked there’s no way they’re getting a divorce anymore, after receiving a call with the news they won $1 million in last night’s Monday Lotto draw.
The New South Wales winner held the only division one winning entry nationally in Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw 4092, drawn Monday 5 July 2021, taking home $1 million.
When we called the winning man, he was heading home from taking his dog for a walk and completely oblivious he had become an overnight millionaire.
“Did you say you’re calling from The Lott? This better not be a hoax,” he exclaimed.
“I have been receiving a lot of nuisance calls lately. I hope this isn’t another one of those, because this would be great if what you are telling me is true.
“Are you kidding me?! I am a bit shell shocked!
“Is this a dream? Am I dreaming? Are you sure?
“A millionaire! I can’t believe it! It won’t sink in. This is crazy.
“It’s a dream come true!
“I just sent a photo to my family of the win and they can’t believe it either!
“I can imagine the kids are already writing their wish lists.”
“And there’s no way I am leaving my husband now he’s a millionaire! I am writing my wish list now too!” the wife jokingly laughed.
When asked how he planned to enjoy his prize, the Sydney man admitted he wanted to be sensible with his prize and seek financial advice.
“I need time to really plan what I am going to do,” he shared.
“I want to get some financial advice first, so I make the right decisions.
“Most of it will be spent on the kids, which I am sure they will be very happy about.
“My wife wants to do some renovations around the house and I would love to go overseas in the future.
“In the meantime, I might go on some fishing trips here in Australia.”
