The elated winner held one of the five division one winning entries in Saturday Lotto draw 4393, drawn Saturday 26 August 2023 and took home $1,033,085.50.
“It’s going to take me some time to process this! Are you for real?” the elated winner said when we confirmed their windfall.
“It’s going to mean my wife and I can retire now, which is incredible.
“We can finally do all the travel we’ve wanted to do for years. We can complete the renovations on the house and we can settle into the rest of our lives in comfort.
“It also means we’re going to be able to spend a lot of time with our grandchildren, which really is the best gift we could have received.
“Honestly, this is crazy!
“You always buy the tickets in the hope you might win something but I’m not sure I ever entertained the thought of becoming a millionaire.
