Canberra man $450,000 richer after Lotto win

A Canberra man woke up more than $450,000 richer on Sunday morning, after claiming one of the winning tickets in Saturday's Lotto Draw.

The man, who wished to remain anonymous, was one of nine division one-winning entries in Saturday's draw, with each pocketing $456,752.50.

"I got up on Sunday morning and had a look at the Lotto app,” the man said. “I was looking at my phone and suddenly this confetti started coming down the screen. I didn’t know what was going on."

“That’s when I looked closer at my entry and I could see I won on the very last game on my ticket. I can’t quite believe it’s real.”

The man, who is aged in his 30s, said he would not starting celebrating until his winnings had landed in his bank account.

“I’m not sure what I’m going to do with it just yet," he said. "It’s huge. There’s so much that comes to mind."
