A West Melbourne man in his 30’s has revealed he had a sleepless night after discovering he is now $1 million richer from taking home the coveted division one prize in last night’s Monday & Wednesday Lotto.

The man held the only winning entry nationally in Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw 3833 on Wednesday 9 January 2019 and takes home the guaranteed division one prize of $1 million.

This morning when we spoke to him, the happy winner revealed he hadn’t slept a wink since he discovered the million-dollar news.

“Thank you! Thank you so much! You know I couldn’t sleep last night!” he exclaimed.

“When I buy my entry online I usually get an email to say if I have won something, and I didn’t get one last night.

“So I logged in and checked it and saw that I had won division one.

“I couldn’t sleep I was thinking about it so much, so I am glad you have confirmed it!”

The sleep-deprived winner confessed he purchased his winning entry on a whim.

“I’ve been playing every week for about five or six years and usually just grab a small QuickPick entry,” he explained.

“I had about $45 in my online account from previous wins, and after buying an entry into the big Powerball draw I had a bit of money left over.

“I thought ‘oh I’ll grab a QuickPick for tonight as well’. I can’t believe I won $1 million on just a 12-game QuickPick!”

When asked how he planned to spend his Monday & Wednesday Lotto windfall, the self-confessed exhausted winner revealed he needed a good night’s sleep before making any decisions.

“I don’t know! I can’t believe it. I think I’ll have to wait until it is in my bank account until I plan what I will do with it,” he laughed.

“It has come at a great time and will take the pressure off.

“I’m glad I don’t have to go to work today because I need to sleep after not sleeping last night!”

The regular player, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his entry online at thelott.com – Australia’s official lotteries.
