A western Sydney man has confessed his hands were shaking after discovering his million-dollar lottery win in Wednesday’s Lotto draw.

The lucky man, who held the only division one winning entry nationally in the Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw 4129, took home $1 million.

“Woah,” was all the man was able to say at first.

“My heart is popping! My hands are shaking!” he added.

The ecstatic winner explained he had been playing Lotto for a long time, but only started playing his winning numbers three weeks ago.

“I never thought I’d win a prize like this. Thank you so much,” he said.

“I’m going to retire immediately. It will be amazing.”

The man’s win brings the Lott’s division one winning tally to 399 so far this calendar year, including 121 won by NSW Lotteries customers.

Once the news sank in, the excited winner explained she planned to surprise her husband that evening.

“Oh my god. I can’t wait to tell my husband. I need a fun way to let him know! Maybe I will do champagne showers and tell him we’re millionaires,” the excited winner said.

“We might also plan a dinner with some friends and our family tonight to celebrate too. It’ll be low-key, but still fun!”

When asked how the couple planned to spend their prize, the emotional woman said the possibilities were endless.

'What can’t I do, is the question?'

“I’m so overwhelmed though, that I am not really sure what I’ll do. What can’t I do, is the question?” she asked.

She then went on to say that she would use their newfound fortune to help out their family and enjoy their retirement in the future, too.

The winning numbers in TattsLotto draw 4205 were 33, 28, 15, 30, 11 and 39, with supplementary numbers were 35 and 19.
