A Wagga Wagga grandfather who’d told himself he’d picked the winning numbers on his Monday & Wednesday Lotto ticket has woken up as a newly minted millionaire.

The Riverina resident held the only division one winning entry in Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw 4119, drawn Wednesday 6 October 2021 and takes home a division one prize worth $1,000,000. 

This morning we confirmed the life-changing news to the winner, who explained he’d only just thought to check his entry. 

“Holy cr**! Oh my god!” he happily yelled. 

“Is this real? Are you being serious? 

“I just thought to check my entry about five minutes before you called. When I opened The Lott app, I thought to myself, ‘I think I’ve won!’. 

“On Tuesday night, I went to purchase my entry and I said to myself, ‘I’m going to pick the winning numbers’. I guess I did! 

“This is amazing. Absolutely life-changing.” 

When asked how he’d enjoy his million-dollar prize, the stoked bloke knew exactly what he’d do. 

“The money will go towards paying off the house mortgage for sure. That’s plan a.” he shared. 

“I’d like to give some money to the kids as well and take the family out to dinner to celebrate. They’ll be over the moon. 

“We’ll be planning a holiday for the future. Perhaps a trip to Vanuatu would be nice!” 

His marked System 8 entry was purchased online at thelott.com – the official home of Australia’s lotteries.
