Unley man’s commute to work interrupted by $1 million X Lotto win!
An Unley man has had his morning commute to work interrupted by the revelation he is now a millionaire from scoring division one in the weekend’s X Lotto draw.
The South Australian held one of the five division one winning entries nationally in Saturday X Lotto draw 4203, drawn Saturday 30 October 2021. Each division one winning entry scored $1,205,982.96.
“I am just in the car, driving to work right now,” he explained when we called to break the exciting news.
“Let me quickly pull over. Did I win one thousand dollars or something?
“You’re kidding me! No, you must be joking. One million dollars?!
“Wow! Jesus Christ! Holy sh**!
“I can barely hold the phone right now. I feel so shaky! What the hell!
“I can’t believe it. I’m a millionaire! I am completely shocked. This is so good!
“Oh my god I can’t wait to call my wife and tell her. This is going to change our lives!”
When asked how he planned to enjoy his million-dollar prize, the Adelaide man said it would set them up for the future.
“We have been wanting to build a new house, so that’s definitely at the top of our list,” he shared.
“I might get myself a new car as well, and we will share some with the kids. It certainly won’t go to waste.”
His winning 25-game QuickPick entry was purchased at Cremorne Hotel, 207-209 Unley Road, Unley.
Cremorne Hotel gaming operations manager Donna Baker said it was fantastic to deliver a million-dollar win to one of their local customers.
“Oh my gosh, it is so exciting! It’s the best news,” she said.
“I can’t even explain how happy we are for the winner. We hope he can enjoy it with his family, and it can make a positive difference to their lives.
“After such a tough couple of years, it’s great to have some positive news.
“It’s fantastic for South Australia. We always get so excited when we hear there’s a winner in the state, but not only is the winner from South Australia, but he’s also from our venue, which is even better!
“The venue has been buzzing with excitement this morning. It has put everyone in such a great mood and everyone is just so happy for the winner.
“We really hope we can deliver more division one wins to our customers. It’s just amazing to know we’ve helped change someone’s life!”
