A man has thrown his search for a home loan out the window after securing a huge $20 million win in the latest Oz Lotto draw.
The man from Findon in South Australia was the only division one winning entry in draw 1507, pulled on January 3.
The man said he was feeling “fantastic” and had been waiting for the call from Oz Lotto after spending the night celebrating with his wife.
“Last night, I remembered I had a ticket and thought I’d take a look. I was so shocked. I just turned the phone over to my wife and said, ‘have a look’,” he said.
“She started screaming and crying. What a moment! We couldn’t believe it. I can’t believe how much we cried.”
He said he physically felt the effects of the excitement of the win.
“We were awake until about 4am this morning. My chest was pumping all night. I felt like I could see my heart beating. I just kept looking at my phone thinking, ‘am I dreaming? What’s happening to me?’.”
The man has revealed how he plans to spend the huge sum of money, planning on buying his family their first home and supporting loved ones.
“We’ve been wanting to buy our first home for a while. We’ve been looking for a loan from different banks and there have been so many ups and downs. Not anymore!”
The happy husband also stated that he has always told his wife he would win the lottery.
“I’ve said to her ‘one day I will win. I don’t know how much it will be or when, but I will win,” he said.
“I’ve been thinking about it. This has been my vision.”
