A MIDLAND man has found out he’s a new Lotto millionaire after pocketing $1 million in Saturday Lotto.
But he was in a compromising position when he found out his good fortune.
“It’s a bit embarrassing but I was actually on the toilet when I realised we’d won,” he said.
“I was scrolling through Facebook and saw that the winning ticket had been sold at Midland Gate so I yelled out to my missus to see where she’d got our ticket from.
“I’m just glad I was sitting down when I checked the winning numbers.”
The man’s wife said she hadn’t slept a wink since finding out that the couple were Midland’s missing millionaires.
“Every half hour, I’d jump up out of bed – heart racing – to check that the winning ticket was safe and sound,” she said.
“I recently lost my job so this ticket is completely life-changing for us.”
