The excited Queenslander has vowed to fulfill Australia’s dream come true after winning $ 20 million in Powerball.
A miner in Cairns was stunned after receiving a call from The Lott this morning informing him of the win.
“Oh Jesus Christ. Crikey,” said the man.
“Thank you very much. O my lord. Are you sure this is not a joke? Did one of my friends put you in this?”
After the excitement, and true death, the winner admitted to playing Powerball only “without further ado”.
He now plans to buy a place for himself, before making sure his friends and family are looked after.
“I will live my dream of Australia and buy myself a lot of goods and live on a grid,” he said happily.
The Far North Queenslander – who wanted to remain anonymous – held Australia’s only competition to win Australia in the Powerball draw 1277, drawn on Thursday 5 November 2020.
