He nearly didn’t play his favourite lotto numbers

If there’s one lotto tip that you can find in just about every single article, it would be the following:

If you play regularly and you always play the same set of lotto numbers, make sure you play them in every draw. You would kick yourself if your numbers come up and you never entered them into the draw.

According to our anonymous Oz Lotto winner, he came incredibly close to not playing his favourite lotto numbers into the draw. He had some favourite numbers saved on his Tatts card and finally decided it was time to play them.

“To think I may not have done it...and now this has happened.”

The starry-eyed winner said that he has loads of ideas on how he will spend his lottery winnings, such as, buying a new car, going overseas on a holiday and most importantly, helping his family. He said the win will most definitely put him “on a bright path for my future.”

Even though the shocked winner is loving the euphoria of winning the lotto, he’s still got his head on his should and said that he wants to take it easy though and make sure he gets the most out of his $10m Oz Lotto win.

Someone else that’s also celebrating is Bronwyn Scully, owner of the Ringwood East Authorised Newsagency where the ticket was purchased. Bronwyn went on to say that it had been “madness in here this morning” and “I've got a headache from the champagne.”

When questioned about who the lucky winner could be, she said that she wasn’t quite sure who the winner was but that she hopes it’s one of her regulars. She’s also hoping that they will let her know and come in and say hi or buy her some flowers.

The winning numbers in the Oz Lotto draw were: 42-19-30-29-01-03 and the two bonus numbers 28 and 23.
