A Mount Barker dad can’t wait to help his adult children buy their first homes this year after winning a $2.3 million prize on New Year’s Eve. 

The South Australian resident held one of the 17 division one winning entries in X Lotto draw 4221 on Friday 31 December 2021. Each division one winning entry scored $2,352,941.18. 

“It’s unbelievable! This is such a life-changing experience,” the winning man exclaimed. 

“We’ve had a pretty tough year, and now this is such an amazing moment in our lives. 

“I’ve just been talking to my adult kids about how I can now assist them getting their first homes. It’s such a great relief as a parent. 

“I discovered the win on New Years Day. I’d kicked on until 3am after a great night. I fell asleep, woke up and thought Id’ better check if I’d won… and I had! 

“I’ll sit down and work out what I’ll do with it all. The first thing I’ll do is pay off the mortgage, and if there’s a little treat to be had, I’d love a new car. 

“I’m going to have an incredible 2022. I know that!” 

The winner’s 36-game QuickPick was purchased at OTR Swanport Road, 159 Swanport Road, Murray Bridge.
