A Narellan Vale man who initially thought he’d won $1,000 in the weekend’s Saturday Lotto draw, was completely blown away to discover he’d actually won $1.25 million.

The Sydney man held one of 16 division one winning entries nationally in Saturday Lotto draw 4337, drawn Saturday 11 February 2023. Each division one winning entry pocketed $1.25 million.

“I saw the numbers pop up on the TV and thought, ‘oh, I think I’ve got a few of those’,” he explained when confirming his win with us.

“After checking my entry, I thought I’d won just over $1,000, and I was stoked with that!

“Then I started counting the zeros, and I think I nearly passed out.

“I tell you what, it’s definitely a nice amount to win.

“But it won’t stop me from working just yet. I’m back at work right now believe it or not.

“I’ll prepare for my future, pay off a few bills and just enjoy this moment.

“It’s not every day you win the lottery.

“Thank you so much!”

The man’s winning entry was purchased online at thelott.com – the official home of Australia’s lotteries.
