"I've been playing for 30 years and the biggest win I've ever had was $1000 back in 1985.
"Oh my God. I'm a millionaire now!
"I only realised I had won when I went into the outlet this morning to put my entries on for the next few weeks and they told me they couldn't pay my prize.

"I think I'll buy myself a new car too! My car is 10 years old, and it's done far too many kilometres. Just this week someone crashed into me and ruined my paint job.
"I can't wait to upgrade and then spend some time exploring the territory!
"I've got quite a bit of long service leave to use, but I won't quit my job as I love where I work and I want to stay there until I retire!"
