Young Ballarat man’s “smart arse” joke about becoming a Monday Lotto millionaire comes true!
A Ballarat man in his 20s admitted he was being a “smart arse” last night when he joked he was going to become an overnight Monday Lotto millionaire. Turns out, he wasn’t joking as he scored division one.
The Victorian player held the only division one winning entry across Australia in Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw 3984, drawn Monday 22 June 2020. He takes home a division one prize of $1 million.
The winner was busy at work when an official from the Lott called him to break the news he was the only division one winner in last night’s draw.
“God, I am feeling better now!” he laughed.
“This is insane!
“I am at work now, but I honestly think I am going to go home. Who wants to work straight after finding out they’re a millionaire!
“It’s funny because I was joking with my wife last night telling her that we could be millionaires if we won division one.
“I was just being a smart arse, but I was right!
“It’s a great surprise!
“I am certainly happy about it.
“I just text my wife and told her, but she doesn’t believe me. I am going to have to send her a screenshot of my phone.
“It’s crazy to think we’ve just become millionaires.”
When asked how he intended to enjoy his million-dollar prize, the surprised winner admitted he had plenty of exciting plans.
“I am going to pay off the house, and then I will probably buy another one,” he shared.
“I’d like to do some travelling around Australia as well. There might be a new car on the horizon too!
“I think we will definitely be celebrating tonight. We will have to go to the pub! As soon as I get off the phone to you, I am making a booking.”
The stoked bloke, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his winning 24-game QuickPick entry online at thelott.com – Australia’s official lotteries.
