Oz Lotto truck unloads $20 million to a NSW builder!
A country builder from the New South Wales region of New England will be getting a special delivery of a truck load of cash after his 3-game entry in Tuesday’s Oz Lotto draw won a $20 million division one prize.
The man in his 30s from a tiny town near Glen Innes was one of two ecstatic division one winners who shared in the humungous $40 million Oz Lotto jackpot draw on Tuesday and are now each coming to terms with becoming a millionaire twenty times over!
The other division one winner, a man from Melbourne who purchased his ticket online, discovered his new multi-millionaire status early on Wednesday morning.
“I logged on to my thelott.com account and thought someone’s won the bloody thing but I didn’t see the numbers right away so I thought I did no good,” the excited Melbourne winner explained.
“But then I looked at the results and thought hang on I’ve ticked all those numbers! Since then I’ve been in a state of flux! I’m still a bit numb and the reality of all the possibilities is still to come.
“$20 million is just off the charts! It just opens up a Pandora’s box of opportunities. We’ll just wait and see! I could certainly become a full-time traveller now!”
Both division one winning entries were purchased online.
The newly-minted Melbourne multi-millionaire purchased his System 9 marked entry online via thelott.com.
