An Adelaide student in his mid-20s has kicked off the New Year as a newly-crowned millionaire.
The man was one of three division one winning entries from the Monday & Wednesday X Lotto draw.
He said he had a “very sleepless night” after learning of his enormous $1million win and is still letting it “sink in”.
“Immediately after I won, I had a beer to celebrate but didn’t do anything else,” he said.
“It’s crazy to think I’ll start the year a millionaire. What a great start to the year.”
“I always said this year was going to be my year, but I never thought it would happen on this scale.”
When asked how he plans on spending his million, the student said he will use some of it to buy a car.
“It’s come at a great time for my studies,” he said.
“I’ve been given a placement but I wasn’t sure how I was going to get there because I don’t have a car.
“Now I can get a car which will make it easier for me to finish my degree.”
He added he will place the rest of the money into savings and possibly taking a gap year after finishing his studies.
Wednesday night’s winning numbers were 23, 24, 37, 25, 20 and 43 while the supplementary numbers were 33 and 18.
