An experienced lotto player from Sydney has finally taken home the win of a lifetime, and he did it using lucky numbers very near and dear to his heart. The man, from Greenfield Park, won the entire division one jackpot in a Powerball draw.
“I’ve been using these numbers for my late father, believe it or not. I’ve been putting them on for three years,” he told a local newspaper.
The man, still in shock from his big win, says he hasn't really thought what he plans on doing with his winnings, but he will be using it to enrich the lives' of his large extended family. “Seeing as they were my late father’s numbers I’m sure he would like the family to be looked after, as he always did the right thing by his family,” the man said.
His winning numbers were 9, 4, 5, 13, 25, 32, and 33, and the bonus Powerball number was 7. It's been a bumper year for Australian lotto players this year, with more than $40 million in jackpots having all ready been won.
