Super 7 Winner too busy taking a call to know he had won $5 Million AUD.
A man from New South Wales, Australia asked lottery officials trying to tell him he’d won AU$5 Million to call back in 10 minutes as he’d just stepped out of the shower.
As reported in the Sydney Morning Herald, the unnamed man won the division one prize pool in the Super 7 draw on 3rd February this year, as well as other prizes in division three, bringing his prize to AU$5,017,543.75.
The NSW lottery official called back and the man, now dried and clothed learned of his win.
“You’ve just made my day, my week, my year, my life!” the man, who wishes to remain anonymous said.
“I’m sitting on cloud nine right now. I’ll be popping a bottle of champagne to celebrate tonight. I can’t wait to tell my wife,” he said.
The man said he will now be cutting back on work and ramping up his leisure time.
“I can’t think what I’ll do with my windfall but I know the work hours will be cut back. Maybe my wife and I will take a dream holiday and I’ll share with my family,” he said.
