A Melbourne construction worker has become the country’s newest millionaire after winning more than $10m in Tuesday’s Oz Lotto draw.
The lucky Oz Lotto winner wasted no time at all to down tools and say, “I’m out of here,” after claiming his $10 million Oz Lotto win. The winning numbers in Tuesday’s Oz Lotto’s $40 million draw were 39, 28, 24, 13, 2, 22 and 19. The supplementary numbers were 5 and 1.
The young Melbourne Oz Lotto player who opted to keep his identity private, was lucky enough to have the only division one winning ticket in Oz Lotto draw on Tuesday.
He won a total of $10,000,039.55 after winning division six and division seven on top of his division one prize.
The lucky Oz Lotto winner told lottery officials while claiming his prize that he found out about the Oz Lotto win while on a smoke break at work.
Totally oblivious about his lucky Oz Lotto win, he said it was while he was having a smoke break that he received a call from a Lotto official informing him of his good fortune.
Speaking to the Lottery official on the phone, he said when questioned about the win, “Oh my god! I am in shock! Wow! I don’t know what to say. My heart is beating, and I am shaking. I don't know how to feel. I don't feel like myself!”
He went on to tell the lottery official that as he’s the family joker, he’s going to have a hard time trying to convince them about winning the Oz Lotto jackpot.
When he got off the call the Oz Lotto winner told everyone around him, “I’m walking out of here, I won’t be going back to work after smoko,” he exclaimed.
“I’m walking out right now. I think everyone will come with me for a celebratory drink!”
The lucky construction worker said that even though he still can’t believe his good fortune, he already has big plans for his future. He has his sights set on becoming a property mogul, and he hopes to invest in several houses.
“I’ll be buying some houses for sure!” he proclaimed.
