“Oh my god! You’ve stopped my heart! I need my heart fixed!” the woman screamed.
“Oh my god! I just won $16 million! Holy sh*t!”
A regular player, the woman said she had to let the news sink in before deciding how she would spend the windfall.
“I can’t wait to call my husband and tell him!” the thrilled winner said.
“We will be sharing the winnings with our family though – that’s for sure!”
A Manly man initially hung up on a NSW Lotteries official when they were trying to tell him that he was one of the three Oz Lotto division one winners.
However, he eventually stayed on the line long enough to have his win confirmed, prompting him to erupt into celebration.
“Are you serious!?! You are kidding me! I can’t believe it,” he said, bursting out laughing.
“Oh man! You have made my whole life! How amazing is this?”
The man explained he marked his winning System 9 entry using family birthdates. He also admitted he had a feeling he might win.
“Earlier today I thought I’d love to win. I was just thinking in my head driving along, and low and behold I won! I can’t believe it!
Last night’s prize was the biggest Oz Lotto jackpot since August 2015, with millions of customers around the country purchasing an entry for the chance to win.
