A Candelo man has confessed he didn’t know what to say or do after checking his Saturday Lotto entry yesterday morning and discovering he’d bagged a $400,000 prize.

The New South Wales man held one of the 13 division one winning entries in Saturday Lotto draw 4447 on Saturday 2 March 2024. Each division one winning entry scored $400,641.05.

“Mate, this is bloody unbelievable!” the winning man cheered when we called to confirm his windfall.

“I’ve never won anything! Not even a chook raffle.

“My wife and I were just going about our Sunday morning, and I thought I’d check my ticket.

“At first, I didn’t think I’d won anything but I clicked through and my jaw nearly fell off my face.

“I just stopped and said, ‘Oh my god’.

“My wife didn’t believe me at first, but we’ve just been in a state of shock since.

“It’s going to help so much.

“We need a new car, we’ll pay off some debt and we’ll prepare for the future.

“I’ve been playing lotteries for decades so this is phenomenal.

“Thank you so much.”

His winning 6-game QuickPick entry was purchased online at thelott.com – the official home of Australia’s lotteries.
