“I’m shaking!”: Broken Hill man unwraps $2.1 million Lotto win on Christmas Day
A Broken Hill man admits he may have just received the best Christmas gift ever – a $2.1 million Saturday Lotto windfall.
The New South Welshman in his 40s held one of the three division one winning entries in TattsLotto draw 4219 on Saturday 25 December 2021. Each division one winning entry won $2,111,667.39.
However, the winner was oblivious to his festive good fortune until we broke the news to him on Boxing Day.
“I’m shaking!” the man exclaimed.
“I had no idea! I hadn’t even checked my ticket because of everything going on with Christmas.
“I don’t think I received any presents as good as this one! It’s all real, right?
“This was the last thing I was expecting on Boxing Day.”
The stunned winner admitted he now looked forward to starting 2022 with greater financial freedom.
“This does so much for us,” he said.
“We’ve been trying to buy a new house, so that’s now taken care of.
“I’ll still keep working. I won’t retire. Things just become so much easier.
There will just be less to worry about.
“I just can’t believe it!”
The man, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his winning 50-game QuickPick entry online at thelott.com – the official home of Australia’s lotteries.
