A Canberra man is today thanking a last-minute decision to purchase a ticket in the weekend’s draw for his almost $1 million win. 

The ACT player held one of the seven division one winning entries across Australia in Saturday Lotto draw 4095 on Saturday 17 October 2020. Each entry won a division one prize of $928,717.27. 

Sharing his excitement with an official from The Lott this morning, the winner explained that he checked his entry yesterday. 

“It was quite a day,” he laughed. 

“I couldn’t believe it when I checked my entry online. 

“I almost fell over! It’s crazy to think that I am one of seven winners. 

“I bought this ticket on a whim. I usually only buy tickets into the big jackpot draws, but I thought I’d give Saturday Lotto a go and I am so very glad I did!

“I never thought I’d win anything like this! “It’s life-changing.” 

When asked how he thought he’d enjoy his prize, the Canberra man said he’d take some time to make plans. 

“I’m still so blown away. I really need time to think about it,” he said. 

“I think I might take some time off work and chill out for a bit then plan what I might do. 

“It’s going to change things in a big way. There’s no doubt about that!” 

The winning ticket was purchased at Kingston Supabarn Lotto, 38 Eyre Street, Kingston.
