A Goulburn couple confessed they haven't been able to hold the tears back after discovering they'd won an incredible $20 million in last night's Oz Lotto draw.
The Southern Tablelands players held the only division one winning entry in Oz Lotto draw 1485 on Tuesday August 2, 2022 and took home more than $20 million.
Confirming their win with an official from The Lott this morning, the pair declared words couldn't describe how they were feeling.
"I'm in tears mate. Every time I think I'm okay, the waterworks kick off again!" the winning husband said.
"I don't even know what to do with myself.
"Retirement is beckoning. I'm not sure if we'll actually make it back into work at this rate. We might just run away.
"I dropped into the store this morning to check my ticket and the team member gave me a shocked look.
"He said, 'you might need to sit down, mate'.
"I can't wait to share it with my family. I'll set everyone up and make sure they don't have to worry about anything.
"We've always been Aussie battlers. Not anymore, though, I guess!"
