The regular Oz Lotto player, who wishes to remain anonymous, said he had a sleepless night after he checked his entry in the draw.
“When I saw that I had all the winning numbers, I thought holy moly I’ve won,” the winner said.
“I raced in to the bedroom and woke my wife and told her that we’d won Oz Lotto. She said to me, ‘This doesn’t happen to us’ and I said, ‘Well it just did’.
“I checked my ticket so many times from 11pm to 2am. I’ve had butterflies in my stomach ever since,” he said.
Owner of the Mittagong Newsagency Wen Zou said when the man, who was an unregistered player, came into the newsagency at 7am Wednesday morning, saying he had won, he though he was joking.
“We checked the ticket and then he drove straight to the Lotteries head office to collect his cheque. I received a call from the office about two hours later saying it had been claimed,” Mr Zou said.
Mr Zou sold the winner his ticket and said the man’s luck had been good for business.
“We have seen a lot of new faces since then.”
The winner said he was unsure what he would do with the money.
“We’ve had some bad times and it’s been a struggle for us. This first division win is going to make our lives so much easier. We will invest some of it.”
Throughout Australia, there were two entries that won a first division share of Oz Lotto’s $40 million jackpot draw on Tuesday, April 14, each worth $20 million.
Along with the winning entry purchased in Mittagong, the other winning ticket was sold in Victoria.
