He was under enormous pressure due to the situation, the man said in a statement published by the lottery. When he checked his online lottery account that night on Monday, he could hardly believe it. In fact, the lottery won the main prize when the Set for Life lottery was drawn on Sunday.
The Australian Set for Life lottery is similar to the German Lotto 6aus49. In contrast to this, the profit is not paid out once, but rather staggered monthly over 20 years.
Set For Life is organized by The Lott Enterprises Pty Ltd, The Lott for short. The brand unites the state-licensed lottery companies Golden Casket, NSW Lotteries, Tattersall’s Sweeps and SA Lotteries under one roof.
20 years of financial security
His wife screamed for joy after waking her up and telling her the good news. In the night they both would no longer close their eyes, but imagine what they would do with the money. The relief that comes with the profit, especially after losing your job, can hardly be described:
I’ve been so stressed lately, but now I’m so happy. That gives us absolute financial freedom. The possibilities are unlimited with this price, that’s a fantastic feeling. I couldn’t be happier!
While he still needs time, his wife has already created a long wish list, the man continues. Among other things, it is planned to invest in the first home.
The winner, who remains anonymous at his own request, will now receive the lottery monthly AUD 20,000 for the next 20 years. Overall, the total prize money is around AUD4.8 million.
