“I feel like I’m still dreaming!”: Hoxton Park man’s peaceful sleep pleasantly interrupted by million-dollar Lotto win
A Hoxton Park man’s hopes for a sleep-in this morning were quickly dashed when he was awoken by lottery officials revealing his life-changing million-dollar win in last night’s Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw.
The Western Sydney resident held the only division one winning entry nationally in Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw 4212, drawn Monday 29 August 2022, and took home $1,000,000.
When we reached out to the winner this morning, he was fast asleep and completely oblivious to becoming a newly-minted millionaire.
“That’s awesome! Thank you so much!” he joyfully exclaimed.
“When you called, I was still sleeping, so I missed a few calls.
“I’ve now woken up, and I’m in complete shock.
“I feel like I’m still dreaming! Is this real?!
“I wasn’t feeling too great this entire week, so to find out I’ve won a million dollars has made me feel so much better!
“I’ve been playing Lotto for years and years. It’s great to have finally won big!
“I’m very excited.
“I’ll probably tell my partner and celebrate on the weekend.
“We will do something special!”
His winning 36-game QuickPick was purchased online at thelott.com – the official home of Australia’s lotteries.
