A Blacktown man has admitted he could barely believe his eyes when he checked his Oz Lotto entry immediately after last night’s draw and found he’d bagged an incredible $15 million prize.

The Sydney resident held one of the two division one winning entries in Oz Lotto draw 1566, drawn Tuesday 20 February 2024 and took home a total prize of $15,000,000.00.

“Mate, I haven’t slept! I saw the win last night and thought I was losing it!” he exclaimed when we called to confirm his windfall.

“This is life-changing! To win on the thirtieth anniversary of Oz Lotto makes it all the sweeter.

“I just never thought I’d see the day when this would happen.

“The first thing that came to my head last night was, ‘I’m mortgage-free.’

“That is a huge weight off my shoulders and is going to set us up for the future.

“My wife and I are already fantasising about booking an overseas trip too.

“We haven’t travelled in years and don’t know where we want to go yet but we can’t wait.

“Thank you so much, mate. I don’t know when I’ll be able to sleep again.”

The man’s winning marked three-game System 8 entry was purchased via The Lott App – the official home of Australia’s lotteries.
