Sydney man 'on top of the world' after winning Set for Life!
An avid skier from Sydney is planning to carve it up on the best slopes around the world after winning First Prize in last night’s Set for Life draw 374.
The man in his 30s said he was shivering after a NSW Lotteries official broke the news to him this morning that he’ll now receive $20,000 this month, next month and every month for 20 years!
“That’s awesome! I don’t know what to say – I’ve got the shivers right now and it’s not because I’m cold!” the shocked winner exclaimed.
“This is unbelievable – I’m on top of the world! I thought it was work calling me when I saw a few missed calls on my phone.
“I’m going to head to the pub this afternoon to celebrate and I might even shout the bar!
“I can’t even imagine what I’ll do now that I’ve won but I’ll definitely be spending more time skiing. I’ll be able to check out the slopes around the world – I think I’ll go to Japan first.”
The newest Set for Life winner, who purchased their First Prize winning entry online via thelott.com, has chosen to remain anonymous.
Across the country, it was the only entry that won First Prize in Set for Life draw 374, which offers a guaranteed First Prize of $20,000 a month for 20 year for up to four winners in each draw.
The winning numbers in Set for Life draw 374 on Sunday 14 August 2016 were 3, 34, 36, 20, 12, 17, 31 and 33, with the bonus numbers 25 and 14.
