Adelaide man walks off the job after $1.6 million Saturday X Lotto win!
An Adelaide man is walking straight out of work never to return again after this morning discovering he won more than $1.6 million in the weekend’s Saturday X Lotto draw.
The South Australian player held one of the 12 division one winning entries across Australia in Saturday Lotto draw 3995, drawn Saturday 2 November 2019. Each entry won a division one prize of $1,666,666.67.
This morning we broke the news to the winner, who had no idea he’d won division one.
“Oh sh**,” he screamed.
“You are kidding me!
“I can’t even think at the moment. I can’t think straight.
“Oh my god. I am shaking!
“I was not expecting this.
“This is amazing. I am so overwhelmed.”
When asked how he planned to enjoy his prize, the newly minted millionaire said his prize would set him up for a happy retirement.
“I am at work now, but I am going to go straight home,” he said.
“I am never coming back to work again. I am retiring.
“I am so excited to just enjoy my retirement and spend a lot of time travelling.
“This completely changes my life.”
The thrilled player, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his 36-game QuickPick entry online at thelott.com – Australia’s official lotteries.
