The regular player received the shock of a lifetime when he walked into his local newsagency to check his lottery tickets and walked out as a newly minted millionaire.

“I feel numb!” he said.

“What an ecstatic feeling! I’ve been playing for nearly six decades and have been visiting Nextra Mareeba News for quite some time now.
“I went to check my Monday and Wednesday Lotto ticket from last night, and the team member pulled me aside to check my winning numbers off one by one. I will keep it on the downlow and process the win in private.
“I’m not entirely sure what I’ll exactly do with the prize, but it would be a dream to buy a yacht and p*** off!”

The lucky numbers 8, 20, 30, 34, 38, 44 and supplement numbers 2 and 28 were drawn last Wednesday night.

Mareeba News owner Mary Graham congratulated the new millionaire.
