Someone In Sydney Won $16.6 MILLION In Last Night's OzLotto!
One Sydneysider woke up a heck of a lot richer than when he went to sleep, scooping $16.6 million in last night's Oz Lotto.
Hilariously, the Manly resident didn't actually believe officials when they called to tell him the life-changing news and hung up on their first attempt.
"Earlier today I thought I'd love to win," the anonymous winner said. "I was just thinking in my head driving along and lo and behold, I won.
"I can't believe it.
"When you rang before I thought it was a bit strange. But then I went and grabbed my ticket, then I checked my ticket and saw the numbers."
The man will split the enormous $50 million prize pot with a Queenslander and a Western Australian and revealed that he chose his numbers based on his family's birth dates.
"This is amazing," he added. "You can honestly say 100 per cent you don't get much better news than this."
