A decade of marking his lottery entries with his favourite numbers has led a Kogarah man to a life-changing $1 million Monday & Wednesday Lotto win.  

The New South Wales player held one of the two division one winning entries nationally in Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw 4127 and took home $1 million. 

Confirming his win with us this morning, the Sydney resident explained he made the exciting discovery last night. 

“Thank you,” he managed eventually. 

“I honestly don’t know what to say. It hasn’t sunk in yet! 

“I was up all night after I checked the ticket. I couldn’t get to sleep. It’s unbelievable. 

“I’ve been playing for about 10 years and I always play the same numbers, my favourite numbers and they’ve certainly delivered for me. 

“I’m going to put it towards a house, it will be a big help!” 

The winning entry was purchased at Icon News, 52 Railway Parade, Kogarah.

Icon News owner Erbin Susinggih said he was thrilled for his local and regular customer. 

“We are so happy for this man!” he exclaimed. 

“It’s really nice to see this prize go to one of our locals. 

“We wish him all the very best and hope he really enjoys it!”
