‘I hadn’t even checked my ticket because of everything going on with Christmas,’ the man told lottery officials.
‘I don’t think I received any presents as good as this one! It’s all real, right? This was the last thing I was expecting on Boxing Day.’
The man, who wished to remain anonymous, achieved the windfall with a 50-game QuickPick entry.
He said he would invest his winnings in real estate.
‘This does so much for us,’ he said. ‘We’ve been trying to buy a new house, so that’s now taken care of.
