An Adelaide dad, who recently lost his job due to the coronavirus pandemic, has scooped a near $5 million lottery win.
The man, in his 20s, scored the division one prize of $20,000 a month for 20 years in the Set for Life draw on Sunday.
He purchased his winning entry online.
"I checked my online account last night and saw I had won," he said on Tuesday.
"I woke up my wife to tell her and she screamed.
"We did not sleep a wink. We stayed up all night watching TV and talking about what we're going to do.
"It is a wonderful feeling."
The couple have a young baby and say the windfall will set them up for the rest of their lives.
"I recently lost my job because of COVID-19, and so this just gives me complete relief," the winner said.
"I have been so stressed lately, but now I am so happy."
