The unnamed man – who was one of four Division 1 winners – ended up pocketing a staggering total of $ 1,095,232.87.
In the clip, The Lott spokesperson Lauren Cooney can be heard asking the man if he had a chance to verify his entry into the Saturday draw online before confirming he was one. happy winners.
The clearly stunned man might respond with little more than a few curses at the start before telling Ms Cooney that her “heart is only racing.”
He then told Ms Cooney that he had “a good feeling” about the ticket, although he had no idea he had won big before the call.
âOh, you don’t understand, it’s just amazingâ¦ oh my God,â he said.
