A Castle Hill man who always had an inkling he’d win the lottery one day was overjoyed to discover he won more than $1 million in last night’s Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw.
The New South Wales player held one of two division one winning entries in Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw 4329, drawn Wednesday 11 October 2023, and pocketed $1,005,600.70.
“Thank you so much!”, the winning man cheered after officials from The Lott reached out to confirm his new millionaire status.
“I feel amazing. I’ve played for years but never won anything! I would always say to my wife, ‘I’ll win one day!’, now I finally have.”
When asked what he planned to do with the prize, the happy man admitted he already had a couple of ideas.
“I’ll be sharing with my wife, and we’ll be able to buy a house!”
His life-changing entry was purchased at Nextra Castle Towers, Shop 1209, Castle Towers Shopping Centre, 6-14 Castle Street, Castle Hill.
Nextra Castle Towers team member Sue Brandjes said the team were ecstatic to have sold a division one winning entry to a local customer.
“How delightful! The team is absolutely thrilled to hear our outlet have sold a division one winning entry in last night’s draw,” she said.
“It’s an amazing milestone for us. We wouldn’t be here without our customers so it’s such great news when we hear one of them has won a prize!
“Everyone has been saying we’re due for a big win soon! Our last division one win was years ago.
“Congratulations to the fortunate winner and best of luck to everyone else!”
