A Greensborough man admitted he was struggling to go to sleep on Saturday night, so he checked his TattsLotto ticket only to discover he had become an overnight millionaire.
“It was so bizarre!” he laughed when we confirmed the win.
“I actually had a quiet night on Saturday. I went to bed pretty early and as I was laying in bed, I thought I would check my TattsLotto results.
“I had two tickets and I checked my first one and I had won about $8, which I thought was alright.
“But when I was looking at that ticket, I recognised some of those numbers and thought I definitely had some of the winning numbers on my second ticket.
“At first, I thought I had won about $1,000 and I was stoked, but then I looked harder and I saw I had all six numbers.
“I couldn’t believe it! I logged back in and out so many times to check.
“It feels surreal! I still can’t believe it!
“I had to go to work today because I just need some normalcy again while this news sunk in.
“I generally have a very stressful job, but today, I feel very relaxed.”
When asked how he planned to enjoy his windfall, the jubilant winner admitted he was going to be sensible with his prize but did have a few ideas already.
“I want to be smart with my prize, so I am going to go and see a financial advisor,” he shared.
“I suspect I won’t retire soon, but I would like to go part time and then in the next few months, or perhaps next year, I might retire.
“There are some things I’d like to do to my house as well, and I want to help my siblings and my family.
“Honestly, what this means for me is a good lifestyle during my retirement! I didn’t have much to use for my retirement, so this makes everything so much better for me.
“This has changed my life and the lives of so many others too! The good times just keep rolling.”
