Friday 4 January, 2013 - A regular Lotto player from Broken Hill is still in shock after learning of his $1,888,016.35 Lotto windfall in Monday’s Lotto Strike draw 3658.
The man said it would take some time for him to realise he wasn’t dreaming.
“I am a regular player and always play the same recorded numbers which are registered to my Players Club card,” he said.
“I didn’t expect to win so I am still in shock. I’ve got some plans for what I am going to do with my prize. The first thing I will do is pay off my mortgage and then I’ll buy a new car.
“I think it will take some time for me to get used to being a millionaire - I may even consider retiring.”
The winner purchased his entry from Westside Newsagency in Broken Hill.
Lotto Strike is an add-on game that is played with Monday, Wednesday and Saturday Lotto.
Lotto Strike’s division one prize is won by selecting the first four Lotto numbers in drawn order. The division one prize jackpots to the following Lotto draw if there are no division one winners.
The winning numbers for Lotto Strike, draw 3658, are 26, 33, 14 and 11.
The Lotto Strike division one prize reverts to $100,000 for Saturday’s Lotto draw.
