An Inner-Sydney man who always knew he was going to win big one day has awoken this morning as a multi-millionaire after scoring $3 million in last night’s Oz Lotto draw.
The New South Wales player held the only division one winning entry in Oz Lotto draw 1574 on Tuesday 16 April 2024. He took home the entire $3 million jackpot.
The winning man was oblivious to his good fortune until we made contact with him this morning.
“Oh my god!” he exclaimed.
“I won it all? By myself?
“I can’t believe it! I was the only division one winner?!
“You know, I had a feeling so I just kept playing.
“I’ve always had a firm belief I was going to win one day. I’ve been having sort of ESP visions – so I kept using my little wins to buy the next ticket.
“I thought, ‘as long as I keep winning something, I’ll keep reinvesting it into the next ticket’.
“It’s so lucky I did random numbers. I was thinking about sticking to the same numbers, but then I thought it was best to stick to random numbers so that’s why I got QuickPicks.
“I’ve always told myself, if I win the lottery, I have my children at the top of my list.  This will be an enormous help to my family.
“It’s amazing! Thank you!”
The man’s winning 50-game QuickPick was purchased at Queens Square Newsagency, 229 Macquarie Street, Sydney.
Queens Square Newsagency owner Peter Wang said he was excited to have sold another division one winning ticket.
“That lucky ticket was sold from my own hands!” he said.
“I’ve been selling lottery tickets for more than 20 years and I’m happy to have helped changed my winning customers’ lives.
“I wish this winner all the very best with their prize.”
