His ticket was one of ten winning entries across Australia in Saturday Lotto draw 4055. The retiree was in disbelief but extremely grateful after learning the news when he decided to pop into his newsagent to check his lotto results. When officials asked the man how he hopes to use his prize, the man was certain that he wanted to share some with his family. He also hopes to buy a new push bike and would love to, “go on a holiday or two when everything gets going again”. 

The winning ticket was purchased at Charlestown Square Newsagency. A team member at the store was thrilled for the regular customer and shared that it had been two years exactly since their last Division 1 winning entry. How exciting!
