Life-changing Lotto win for broke single dad
1 min read
A Melbourne man with just 8 cents left in the bank has won $1,500,000 in last weekend's $21 million Superdraw. Astoundingly, the single father of two had been to see a psychic in the days prior to the draw, who told him his financial situation would soon be looking up.
The stunned Division 1 winner said that his massive lotto windfall would "certainly do the trick" in that regard, adding that his win "must have been written in the stars." After checking his ticket "about 10 times", it finally sunk in that he had become an instant millionaire. "Now I'll have $1,500,000.08," he laughed.
The man plans to use the money to help his family and invest in his children's future.
More stories are coming in from the other 13 Division 1 winners across Australia, including a seasoned Tattslotto player from Preston who achieved his first big win after 40 years of punting, and a young family from Tennant Creek who had run out of money for their new home build. "It couldn't have come at a better time," said the new millionaires, who purchased their winning ticket online from OzLotteries.com.
The winning numbers from Saturday Lotto Superdraw 3473 were 9, 15, 21, 24, 30 and 42, with supplementary numbers 1 and 2. Could you be Australia's next millionaire? Powerball jackpots to $10,000,00 this Thursday - official tickets are on sale now.
