SYDNEY- A stunned Sydney man celebrated winning the Australian lottery won the lottery earlier in the week and could not believe that later in the week he would the lotto again.
The man who has wanted to be named unnamed, he is in his 40s, from the suburb Bondi, he won Aus$ 1,020,487 (USD$770 000) and later in the week $1, 457, 834 on Saturday.
Speaking to NSW lotteries on Monday, he said he could not believe his luck, “I just thought this is too good to be true,” he told NSW Lotteries Monday after being informed of his good fortune.
Asked what he will do with the winnings, he said, ” I won’t be stupid with it.”
“The chances of winning twice in such a short period of time must be non-existent. I wish I had some advice to others on how to win the lottery, but I don’t.”
NSW Lotteries spokesman Matt Hart told AFP, “We don’t know of anyone else who has won twice in a week,”
“We have had people win twice in their lifetime, but not twice in a week. It is very unusual and unique.”
The last biggest winner was a man from Victoria state who woke up Aus$55 million richer in January.
