Oz Lotto $10 million jackpot won by Maroondah man!
A man from the City of Maroondah, in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne, was blown away when his everyday train trip into work was interrupted with the life-changing news that he’d become a multi-millionaire overnight!
The stunned man won the entire $10 million jackpot prize in last night’s Oz Lotto draw with a 4-game marked entry he purchased from Ringwood East Authorised Newsagency.
The winner was heading into work on the train when he received the life-changing news that many dream about - he’d scooped the Oz Lotto division one jackpot pool.
“I can’t think straight! I am so surprised, I am off the planet! I’m tripping off the moon, off the planet!” he exclaimed. “
Geez I can’t believe it! It’s going to change my life! Oh my god!
“Hopefully I don’t get struck by lightning on the way home,” he laughed.
“I had some favourite numbers saved on my Tatts Card that I’d had there for quite a while so I thought oh look I’ll put them on and see what happens…to think I may not have done it… and now this has happened!
“It’s all still sinking in, but I want to take it easy and do the right thing so that I can get the most out of this and live reasonably well for the rest of my life.
“I think I might be getting a new car and taking a holiday overseas. I’ll be able to help family out and it’ll put me on a bright path for my future.”
Bronwyn Scully has been the owner of Ringwood East Authorised Newsagency, 52 Railway Avenue in Ringwood East, for the past decade.
“We are just so excited! It’s been madness in here this morning!” Ms Scully exclaimed.
“We’ve got the balloons up and everyone has been asking us what is going on, and I’ve been telling them that we sold the only $10 million winning Oz Lotto ticket in the country in last night’s draw! It’s really exciting!
“I’m rapt! I just hope it’s one of our regulars!
“In 10 years of business, we’ve sold a few division one winning tickets, our last one in 2014, but our $10 million winning customer certainly takes the cake!
“This could be just the start of a lucky streak for Ringwood East Authorised Newsagency so I’m excited to see what will come next!”
