One resident of North Sydney wasn’t too happy once he heard the phone ringing in the middle of his lawn mowing mission. He changed his mind when he picked up the phone, because it turned out lottery officials were calling him to share an important piece of information – he won $7.500.000!
Fortunate man matched the main numbers 3, 7, 8, 14, 17, 28 and 31 in the Oz Lotto draw on October 30th. He was one of two ticket holders who hit the jackpot that night and equally split and impressive windfall worth $15.000.000.
The fortunate Sydney resident didn’t remember to check his numbers when he woke up the next morning, and went on with his day like nothing happened. The hardworking dad decided to do some gardening and mow the lawn, but was interrupted when his phone started ringing. The man was probably a little bit annoyed at first, but everything changed once he learnt who was calling.
“I don’t know what to say. I’m in shock. I just can’t believe it. It’s a big amount. I’m a bit emotional to be honest. Thanks for the best call of my life,” said the anonymous man while taking to lottery officials on the phone.
The $7.500.000 winner was on the verge of tears when he found out his prize was worth a fortune, since he never even dreamt of a win like this. He’ll use the money to retire early and help out his kids. The new-found millionaire made the life-changing purchase at Allambie Heights Newsagency, owned by Chang Xu.
