Currumbin man’s Monday morning interrupted by million-dollar news
When an official from The Lott contacted the Currumbin man this morning to break the life-changing news, he was settling in for a day of work and had no idea about his good fortune.
“Oh, thank you!” he exclaimed.
“I honestly can’t quite believe it to be honest.
“I am over the moon, over the moon!
“It feels very strange. I’ve only ever won $40. I can’t believe this.
“I’ll be buying myself a new ute to start with. Then we will be doing a lot of work to the house. Maybe we’ll even put in a pool!
“If I could go overseas, I would do that too.
“I am quite overwhelmed. This is amazing!”
He purchased his life-changing entry online at thelott.com – Australia’s official lotteries.

“Thank you very much!” he laughed.
“It feels so good. It’s honestly a bit surreal. I’m still trying to absorb the news.
“I checked the ticket on Sunday morning. I couldn’t believe it, so I woke my wife up to double-check it for me.
“We were both stunned. It will certainly go towards our retirement fund.
“We will really enjoy it!”
The Tallebudgera local picked up his division one prize at Spar Express Tallebudgera, 7 Trees Road, Tallebudgera.
