“I saw on social media that there was a mystery winner who had purchased their ticket from Austinmer Newsagency and Post Office, and they were encouraging players to check their tickets,” she said.  

“I decided to check my tickets last night and that’s when the $1 million win appeared. I immediately burst into tears.  

“I rang the two other syndicate members and they’re in shock. It’s absolutely life-changing.”

Girraween man becomes a millionaire while at work 

While we might have a few more weeks before the festive holidays really kick in, that doesn’t mean our workdays have to be all bad. For one Darwin man, his Tuesday morning went from business to bliss.  

“Wow! Won’t you look at that!” he laughed. 

“I’m at work, and when you called, I was sitting next to my boss. I thought maybe it was a scam call, so I had it on speaker. I quickly turned it off speaker and now here we are! 

“It might be hard to concentrate today.”
