An Australian man has scooped up a whopping $3.4 million on the lottery – after the numbers appeared to him in a dream.
The lucky winner from Marion, South Australia purchased The Lott’s Set for Life ticket on December 5th.
He had the only division one winning entry for draw 2313, and can now expect $14,269 to be dropped into his account every month for the next 20 years.
The winner said: “I buy Set for Life tickets every week. It’s my favorite lottery game.”
“I was ducking in to get some groceries this morning when I thought I’d check my ticket.”
“When I scanned the ticket, the prize amount wouldn’t come up, so I thought I must have won something good. I went straight to the head office then to find out exactly what it was.”
“I couldn’t believe it when they told me I’d won division one!”
He added: “It’s so surreal.”
The man said that the numbers came to him in a vivid dream several years ago and that he has kept faith with them all this time.
“It was such a vivid dream, and in it, I used the numbers to play the lottery and then I won division one,” he said.
“It felt like a premonition. I’m not kidding! This isn’t made up. It really happened.”
He added: “It feels as though it was meant to be. It’s incredible.”
The man said that it is “an incredible win” and will be “life-changing” adding: “I still work and so does my wife, but now we’ll be able cut back or even retire.
“It means we don’t have to work anymore if we don’t want to.”
‘We will help out our kids as well, and the rest we will use to really enjoy life.”
