What would you do with $2.5 million?

That’s the question a Canberra man is facing after being one of four division one winners nationally, each bagging $2.5 million in the Saturday Lotto draw.

“This is one of the best days of my life!” the winning man exclaimed when speaking to an official from The Lott.

The man told the official he already knows where he wants to spend the money.

“My first priority is to buy a house. I’m going to start searching for my first house now. I don’t need to worry about interest rates!”

The winning entry was purchased at Metro Mitchell, and was the first time the man had ever tried his luck in the lottery.

“I just bought this ticket on the spur of the moment. I’ve never bought a lottery ticket before.”
