A Port Macquarie man is ready to accelerate a long-held dream and buy himself a new car after winning more than $733,000 in the weekend’s Saturday Lotto draw.

The New South Wales resident held one of the seven division one winning entries in Saturday Lotto draw 4299, drawn Saturday 1 October 2022 and took home a division one prize of $733,492.92.

“Is this fair dinkum?” he exclaimed when we made contact to confirm his windfall.

“Oh my god! This feels amazing! I can’t believe it.

“First thing I’ve got to do is tell my wife. She’s going to be incredibly shocked, but no doubt she’ll be over the moon!

“Then I’m not sure how I’ll celebrate. My goodness, it’s a hard thing to get your head around.

“I might treat myself to a new car! I’ve wanted to upgrade for quite some time and now that the opportunity has presented itself I think that’s a great idea.

“Thank you so much. This means the world to us!”
