A Tasmanian man has won a $2 million Father’s Day payoff after playing the same numbers for decades.
The player from Hobart said he was enjoying a quiet say at home on Sunday when he received the life-changing call from The Lott.
“This is unreal! I’ll have to try and calm down a bit,” he told The Lott.
The man plans to spend his winnings on his children.
“I’ll help my children first, and then after that, I don’t really know. Maybe some holidays around Australia,” he said.
Sorrel Lucky Agency manager Debbie O’Shea, whose staff member sold the winning entry, said she was celebrating.
“I was amazed when I saw we’d sold a division-one-winning entry,” she told The Lott.
To think we had made someone a multi-millionaire overnight.”
The winning numbers in the TattsLotto draw were 10, 18, 39, 3, 21 and 6, while the supplementary numbers were 41 and 43.
