Apparently one of the four OzLotto winners last night was from Canberra. The total division one prize pool was almost $112 million, so that’s $28 million about to be injected into the ACT economy (or not).
Quoted in the SMH the local winner said:
“First of all we’ll pay off our mortgage then we’ll settle the kids’ mortgages. There are some other relatives we’d like to take care of too — they’ve been good to us.
“I’ll probably have a beer to celebrate.”
Whoever you are, congratulations. Spend it wisely.
