A Palmerston man has received an exciting distraction to his morning at work - a life-changing phone call revealing he’s a newly minted TattsLotto millionaire. 

The Northern Territory man held one of the five division one winning entries across Australia in TattsLotto draw 4225, drawn Saturday 15 January 2022, and pocketed $1,184,964.59. 

The hard-working man had intermittent reception while he was at work this morning and was completely oblivious to his good fortune until an official from The Lott finally managed to contact him. 

“Wow! Wow! It’s $1.1 million?” he happily questioned. 

“S*** yeah! That’s sweet! 

“What awesome news! I’m ecstatic! I had absolutely no idea until you called. I don’t have great reception at work, so I haven’t been able to check the results. 

“I’ll definitely keep working until clock-off time, but it’s going to be hard to concentrate all day. I’m in such a daze now! 

“It’s great to see a win come my way after playing for a while now. It’s great, mate! 

“What am I going to do as a millionaire!?” 

“I can finally purchase my own place. It’s been a long-time coming, and I’m so happy. 

“I have some holidays booked in the near-future, so it will definitely help me pay for them. 

“I’ll have to have a glass of champers to celebrate!” His winning 24-game QuickPick was purchased online at thelott.com – the official home of Australia’s lotteries.
