Bye bye student debt, hello stress-free 2020: young Cabramatta man becomes overnight Lotto millionaire
A young Cabramatta man in his 20s has had his morning commute to work interrupted by the revelation he is now a millionaire from last night’s Wednesday Lotto draw.
The stunned winner held the only division one winning entry nationally in Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw 3929, drawn Wednesday 11 December 2019 and takes home the guaranteed division one prize of $1 million.
When we made contact with the Sydney man to confirm the million-dollar news, he was initially sceptical. However, once he checked his ticket online and saw the six winning numbers in a single game panel, his disbelief turned into celebration.
“Awesome!” he laughed.
“I still can’t quite believe it, but I can see it on my ticket.
“I guess you can say I’m a millionaire now! That will take some getting used to.
“I’ve won smaller prizes before but never anything past three digits.
“I don’t think I’ll be able to focus at work today… or for the next few weeks.”
The happy worker explained he had only begun playing Monday & Wednesday Lotto a month ago.
“I just thought I’d take a chance and that you’ve got to be in it to win it,” he said.
“It’s all still sinking in. I might not believe it’s really true until I see it in my bank account.
“But the first thing I will do is pay off my student debt. After that, who knows! It really will make for a stress-free 2020.”
The winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his 50-game QuickPick entry online at thelott.com – Australia’s official lotteries.
