“I’ve just been shaking my head since I checked my ticket yesterday morning,” the man said.
“For one, I want to buy a house which means it’s time to hunt for that first home! It seems surreal to even say that!
“I can’t wait to tell my family. I’ll help my brothers and sisters and still be able to live the life I’ve always dreamed of.”

“I can't believe it! That’s amazing! You’ve made my day,” he said.
“I’ve always wanted to be able to give back.
I have a few family members who aren’t as fortunate as me so I’m going to share it with them.”
Sleepless night for Greenslopes man
A Greenslopes man was over the moon this week when he discovered his winning prize in the middle of the night! The winning man scored a $1 million Monday & Wednesday Lotto win.

“Look, it’s amazing and it’s definitely going to relieve a lot of stress in my life, but it’s also going to allow me to set up my parents too.
“It means I’ll be able to break into the property market and buy my first home. It means so much to me!”
