A Binya man was on the verge of fainting and revealed he couldn’t wait to help others after discovering he had scored more than $1 million in the weekend’s Saturday Lotto draw.

The New South Wales resident held one of the five division one winning entries in Saturday Lotto draw 4473, drawn Saturday 1 June 2024 and pocketed a total prize of $1,048,013.90.

The awestruck winner checked his ticket on Sunday morning and hadn’t stopped shaking ever since.

“Thank you very much!” he cheered.

“I’ve waited my whole life for this winning call. No, seriously I’ve been playing for over 50 years.

“I have to sit down. I can’t stop shaking.

“Thank you to everyone at The Lott. I love you all so much!

“I’m over the moon. This is going to help so many people.

“My family, my friends, my relatives. I’ll be able to help them all.

“I checked my ticket Sunday morning, and I haven’t been able to do anything. I've just been shaking and waiting for your call. I’m so glad I have my supportive family here to help me.

“I realised I had won division one, but I wasn’t sure how much.

“Once I won $700. That was exciting at the time, but now nothing compared to this!

“Thank you so much. My children will also benefit so much from this. It’s truly amazing. It’s the biggest news I’ve ever received.

“Oh gosh. I can’t get up. I think I’ll faint!”
