A hard-working Hoppers Crossing granddad can’t wait to use his million-dollar Monday & Wednesday Lotto windfall to travel and meet his new grandson once restrictions are lifted.

The happy winner held one of the two division one winning entries nationally in Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw 4015, drawn Wednesday 7 October 2020 and takes home a division one prize of $1 million.
When an official from The Lott contacted the Melbourne player this morning, he was hard at work and oblivious to his overnight win.
“That’s great! Fantastic! I’ve been waiting all my life for good news like this,” he laughed.
“I’ve been marking my ticket for years using birthdates and this and that. Until now, they’ve brought no luck at all, I can tell you that.
“I can’t believe it. I’m going to need to have a drink of water or splash water on my face to make sure I’m not still sleeping.”
While immediate celebrations would be low-key due to COVID-19 restrictions, the proud dad and granddad said he couldn’t wait to mark his good fortune by getting his whole family together sometime soon.
“We’ll celebrate at another time. I’ll use this prize to help my family. They’re very, very important to me,” he said.
“When we can, I can’t wait to travel and meet my new grandson. I haven’t met him yet.
“This is just fantastic!”
The man, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his winning marked 9-game entry at Target Lotto, Shop 9, 24-50 Old Geelong Road, Hoppers Crossing.
