Sleepless night for Cabramatta man after $874,000 Lotto discovery!
A young Cabramatta man has happily admitted he hasn’t slept a wink since discovering he won more than $874,000 in the weekend’s Saturday Lotto draw.
The Sydney resident held one of the five division one winning entries nationally in Saturday Lotto draw 4017, drawn Saturday 18 January 2020. Each entry took home a division one prize of $866,693.67.
In addition to scoring division one, his marked System 7 entry also won division three 6 times, boosting his total win to $874,019.07.
This morning we contacted the winning Sydneysider, who was still in shock from making the discovery on Saturday night.
“Thank you so much,” he laughed.
“It hasn’t sunk in yet. It feels so surreal!
“I haven’t slept a wink since I checked my account on Saturday night. I was just so shocked.
“I kept logging into my online account to see if the win was real. Even though you’ve confirmed it’s real, it still doesn’t feel like it is.
“The numbers I picked are very special to me, so I am very happy they have delivered me a fantastic prize.
“This is just insane.”
The hardworking man said his windfall would allow him to realise some long-held dreams, including taking some much-needed time off work.
“It’s time to buy a house. I’ve always rented, so I am excited to get something that will be mine,” he explained.
“I think I will take a few months off work and go on a big trip to America.”
