Aussie Dad Wins Lotto Twice In One Night – But He’s Already Spent It All
A Sydney dad has become an overnight millionaire after winning division one Lotto twice in the same draw.
The incredibly lucky man from Parramatta, west of Sydney, accidentally marked two games with the same numbers – giving him double the winnings.
He scored two of the six rare division one wins during Monday's draw, totalling more than $1.3 million.
“I’m in a state of shock,” the man said after he realised what he had won.
“You have no idea how this has helped my family.
“I’ll be able to pay off my mortgage and I’m able to help my kids. It’s already been spent mate, but all wisely I can assure you.
“It’s so much appreciated.”

The man, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his winning marked 18-game entry at Parramatta CBD Newsagency.
Newsagency owner William Ho said he was excited about his store’s first-ever division one winning entrant.
“We’ve been waiting for a long, long time,” he said.
“We’ve been here for 15 years and we’ve never sold a division one.
“I was very happy this morning when I saw we had sold not one but two division one wins.
“It’s such good news. We wish our customer all the best with their double prize.”
