Wollongong truckie becomes Monday Lotto millionaire!

A Wollongong truck driver is $1 million richer after his entry in last night’s Monday Lotto draw won first division!

The overwhelmed winner said he spent all day on the road unaware he was one of the state’s newest millionaires!

“I checked my ticket when I got home after a long day at work and couldn’t believe it! I was in shock!” the excited winner exclaimed.

“I had to recheck my ticket a few times before I’d let myself believe I’d won. I even checked the winning numbers backwards and forwards!

“I’ve already been asked by a family member if I’ll still go to work tomorrow and I said to them, ‘Yeah I suppose.’

“While I’d love to buy a Ferrari, I’ll use my prize money to pay off my home first and then I’ll invest the rest.”

The division one winning 18-game marked entry was purchased from Dapto Newsagency, 17 Bong Bong Road in Dapto.

Throughout Australia, there were two entries that won first division in last night’s Monday Lotto draw, which offers a guaranteed $1 million division one prize for up to four winners in every draw.
