Tuesday 11 March, 2014 - A Noble Park man has claimed his $1 million prize from last night’s Monday Lotto draw and said he’ll be celebrating the win with a wine!
“I’m going to take a nice bottle of Shiraz home and break the news to my wife!” the winner in his mid-50s said when speaking to a Tatts official.
“She’ll be able to reduce her work days now and we’ll invest part of the money for our retirement.
“Two of our children are getting married this year so we’ll help them out as well.
“I’d also like to buy a new car and look at an investment property. There are a lot of decisions to be made now!”
The winning man said he’ll also share some of the prize money with a cause close to his heart.
“I’ve always dreamed of being able to do more charity work, so I’ll donate some of this prize money to help support homeless children through an orphanage in Sri Lanka.”
The man purchased his first division winning Monday Lotto 50-game Maxi QuickPick entry from Noble Park News & Tatts at 21-22 Douglas Street in Noble Park.
The winner said he was pleased his 50-game Maxi QuickPick ticket netted him the significant prize.
“I actually started purchasing Maxi QuickPick tickets as part of a Tatts promotion to win a holiday cruise, but now I’ve won $1 million so I can afford to take myself on a cruise!” he laughed.
Monday & Wednesday Lotto guarantees a $1 million division one prize for up to four winners every Monday and Wednesday, encouraging players to think of how they would fulfil their “Mon-Daydream” each week.
“My Monday daydream used to be for my wife and I to work fewer hours and relax,” the winner said.
“Now that we’ve won Monday Lotto we can do that, and plan for a more comfortable retirement.”
The winning numbers in Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw 3328 on Monday 10 March, 2014 were 44, 20, 40, 28, 37 and 27 with the supplementary numbers of 16 and 19.
